If Houston Texans free agent linebacker Connor Barwin is
unable to reach an agreement to remain with his current club, he told Adam
Schein and Rich Gannon on SiriusXM Radio that he would be open to joining the
New England Patriots or Indianapolis Colts.
If Barwin doesn’t return to the Texans, he’s made it clear
that he hopes to join a winning team with an established quarterback. The free
agent even went as far as saying that he would be willing to take a pay cut in
order to land in such a situation.
Barwin told Schein and Gannon that it “would be nice” to
join the Patriots and that he would also be willing to sign with the Colts.
"Yeah, they would seem to have a lot of interest,"
Barwin said. "So we'll see. That would be very interesting. ... There's a
lot of factors that would have to come into play to make me do it, but I think
that it would be hard to go there and play. But I'm sure they could change my
mind with a couple of different things."
While he’s coming off a down season statistically, Barwin
has a solid track record and is still only 26 years old. For this reason, he
still figures to garner significant attention this offseason.
