Rams GM Les Snead said the team is attempting to re-sign OLB Connor Barwin.

They want to do the same with C John Sullivan. Barwin struggled a bit his first season with the Rams, but he did notch five sacks and would be a solid veteran option for a paper-thin pass-rushing corps. Even if they bring Barwin back and 2017 fourth-rounder Samson Ebukam takes a step forward, as they hope, the Rams will need more help on the edge.
Mar 15 - 9:04 AM

The Orange County Register's Rich Hammond doesn't expect the Rams to re-sign free agent OLB Connor Barwin.

Barwin expressed a desire to return to L.A. after the Rams were bounced from the playoffs in January, but the feeling doesn't appear to be mutual. Barwin managed five sacks across 657 snaps last season and turns 32 this year. He was probably viewed as more of a one-year stopgap for DC Wade Phillips' first season with the Rams. However, L.A. has zero proven talent at the edge rusher spots again after trading Robert Quinn to Miami and having Barwin a free agent.
Mar 11 - 8:06 PM

Impending free agent OLB Connor Barwin hopes to re-sign with the Rams.

"I’d love to be back," Barwin said. "This is my third time (that) I’ll be a free agent. I’ve been down this road before. I’ll just let it take care of itself, enjoy these next couple of months, and then hope to be back and get to." Barwin earned low marks from Pro Football Focus for his age-31 season in Los Angeles, but tallied five sacks in 657 snaps. If he's re-signed, it could be without any guaranteed money.
Jan 18 - 4:01 PM

Rams OLB Connor Barwin (forearm) is "on track" to play Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Barwin has been sidelined the last two games because of a fracture in his forearm, but he was never expected to miss extended time. Rookie Samson Ebukam has shown well in his place, but Barwin returning is a boost for the defense.

Rams OLB Connor Barwin (forearm) is expected to miss Week 14 against the Eagles.

He didn't practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to return against his former team. Barwin remains without a timetable as he works back from a broken forearm he suffered in Week 12. Samson Ebukam started in Barwin's place last week at Arizona.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 05:07:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rams OLB Connor Barwin will miss 1-2 games with a "slight fracture" in his forearm.

Barwin has been a big-time contributor off the edge for the Rams this season; he only has four sacks, but Barwin is playing a ton of snaps in DC Wade Phillips' 3-4 front. Matt Longace and Samson Ebukam will pick up more reps.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 07:24:00 PM

Rams OLB Connor Barwin injured his arm in Sunday's game against the Saints and will not return.

This could mean anything from a broken arm to biceps or triceps injury. Playing roughly two thirds of the Rams' snaps, Barwin entered Week 12 with four sacks in 10 games.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 06:22:00 PM

Rams OLB Connor Barwin said it "feels good" to be back in Wade Phillips' scheme.

Barwin was not at his best as a 4-3 defensive end in Philadelphia, so he is happy to be back in a 3-4 under Phillips, under whom Barwin played in Houston. "This is really where I want to be playing, the system I want to be in and where I’m going to have the most success," Barwin said. Going on 31, the pass rusher may not return to the double-digit sack tier, but he should be a solid option opposite Robert Quinn.
Tue, Jun 27, 2017 09:15:00 AM

Rams signed OLB Connor Barwin, formerly of the Eagles, to a one-year contract.

Per ESPN's Adam Caplan, it's worth a maximum of $6.5 million. Barwin played defensive end in the Eagles' 4-3 defense last season, but has plenty of experience in 3-4s, including with new Rams DC Wade Phillips in Houston. Going on 31, Barwin has slowed a bit in recent years, but notched at least five sacks each of his four seasons in Philadelphia. He's a workout freak who stays in shape. He's a needed addition for a Rams pass rush lacking bodies.

Free agent OLB Connor Barwin is visiting the Rams on Wednesday.

This makes too much sense not to happen. Barwin turns 31 this year, but the Rams are transitioning to a 3-4 defense under new DC Wade Phillips and have zero edge rushers behind Robert Quinn. Barwin played for Phillips in Houston earlier in his career. He's appeared in all 16 games each of the past six seasons and remains a reliable edge-setter with 46 sacks the past six years.
Wed, Mar 15, 2017 10:16:00 AM

Free agent DE Connor Barwin will visit the Bengals on Monday.

Despite sitting on the 11th-most cap space in football, the penny-pinching Bengals let their two best offensive linemen walk in free agency. Barwin probably shouldn't be expecting a big contract offer. With that said, Barwin's edge-defending ability would be very much welcomed in Cincinnati, where RE Michael Johnson is completely washed. Barwin played his college ball for the Bearcats.
Sun, Mar 12, 2017 10:22:00 PM

Eagles released DE Connor Barwin.

The move saves $7.75 million against the cap, making this one a no-brainer. GM Howie Roseman tried to find a trade partner, but there was no way anyone was going to give up something and take on that contract when they knew the Eagles would dump him. Barwin was a really poor fit in DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 front as an end. Look for him to sign with a 3-4 team as an edge rusher, although MMQB's Albert Breer reports the 49ers will likely be interested.
Thu, Mar 9, 2017 09:57:00 AM

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Eagles are trying to trade OLB/DE Connor Barwin.

Philly is also still trying to move LB Mychal Kendricks. Perhaps they are able to find takers, but the more likely outcome is both are cut before the new league year begins tomorrow afternoon. Cutting Barwin would save the Eagles $7.75 million against the cap.
Wed, Mar 8, 2017 03:16:00 PM

Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer said "it’s difficult to see" Connor Barwin back with the Eagles in 2017.

McLane's opinion has been the general consensus since the end of the season. Barwin has said he is willing to take a pay cut, but McLane does not think the Eagles will be willing to match what the pass rusher will fetch on the open market. A poor fit in DC Jim Schwartz’s scheme, Barwin should draw plenty of interest from 3-4 teams if he is made available. NJ Advance Media listed the Colts, Packers, and Ravens as possible suitors.
