Barwin signed a one-year deal worth up to $6.5 million with the Rams on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin's signing addresses a major need for the Rams after the team jettisoned a pair of veteran edge rushers on the first day of free agency. The 30-year-old Barwin is coming off one of his least productive seasons as a pro, racking up 5.0 sacks over 16 games. That said, Barwin hasn't missed a game in six full seasons and he will add a veteran presence to an otherwise young defensive corps.

Barwin was released by the Eagles on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

An eight-year pro, Barwin has spent his last four seasons with the Eagles. Although he started 16 games last season, his production suffered a drop-off, as Barwin recorded a three-year low sack total (5.0). Even though Barwin is now on the wrong side of 30, his consistency has been tremendous, as 2016 was the sixth year in a row he started all 16 regular season games. Although his presence will be missed, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Enquirer reports the move will save the Eagles $7.75 million in cap room.

Barwin started all 16 games at defensive end for the Eagles in 2016, while accumulating 20 tackles, five sacks, two passes defended, and a forced fumble in the process.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin continued his model of consistency in 2016, starting all 16 games for the third straight season. He has missed just one game in the past six seasons overall. The veteran will be entering his ninth season in the league in 2017, and has two more season under contract with the team. Barring any unforeseen injury, he figures to head into next season as the team's starting left defensive end once again.

Barwin (bone bruise) will not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin isn't a likely candidate to miss Monday's contest against the Packers, but he figures to miss some practice time in order to heal the bothersome bone bruise. Marcus Smith and Vinny Curry figure to see additional reps with Barwin sidelined for the time being.

Barwin is dealing with a bruised bone, Philly.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles were ravaged by injury Sunday against the Seahawks, but Barwin is likely one of the most fortunate players to have gone down as his bone bruise isn't expected to prevent him from playing in this weekend's game against the Packers.

Barwin recorded a sack, his seventh of the year, in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin's sack production was halved from last season to this year, as the Eagles' defense on the whole was less effective in pressuring opposing quarterbacks. He still piled up 45 tackles and seven passes defensed, but he only forced one fumble and didn't come up with an interception. Ultimately, the stud linebacker didn't live up to his preseason expectations.

Barwin recorded a sack and four tackles in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin dropped the same stat line in back-to-back weeks, and now has two sacks on the year. He has been used plenty in defensive coordinator Bill Davis's pass rushes so far this season, and has looked just as strong as he did in 2014. He's likely limited to one sack per game unless he has another October outburst, but Barwin is a consistent playmaker to keep an eye on.

Barwin picked up a sack and four tackles in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Barwin, who set a career-high with 14.5 sacks last season, picked up his first of the season against Dallas. He's officially on pace for eight sacks this year, although we know sacks tend to come in streaks and bunches. Barwin is an intriguing IDP; if the Eagles' offense can fix its problems, the team's defensive front seven is strong. But if the defense continues to spend 40 minutes on the field, Barwin and the rest of the defense will start to wear down and the playmaking ability won't always be there.
