The Eagles remain busy in free agency, signing free agent outside linebacker Connor Barwin to a reported 6-year, $36 million deal on Thursday. Barwin had a breakout season in 2011, where the former University of Cincinnati start recorded 11 sacks for the AFC South Texans.

At 26-years-old, he joins an Eagles defense that already added former Giants safety Kenny Phillips earlier Thursday afternoon.
