Eagles sign offensive lineman Allen Barbre to 3-year extension

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles have locked up one of their offensive linemen for the long haul.

The Eagles have made a move to lock up one of their own. The team has announced that they have signed offensive lineman Allen Barbre to a three-year extension that will keep him on the roster until 2017. Barbre initially signed with the Eagles as a free agent journeyman in Jan. 2013.

Prior to being signed by Eagles, Barbre bounced around the league after being selected in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Packers. In seven seasons, Barbre has played for the Packers, Seahawks, Dolphins and Eagles. He played in 15 games for the Eagles last season and was used at both tackle and guard for the team. He was the only Eagles backup offensive lineman to see extensive playing time.

Eagles fans were first introduced to the talent of Barbre by Evan Mathis during an interview last offseason with BGN. I also speculated later in the offseason that Barbre could be the next Mathis, as they faced similar career paths prior to arriving in Philadelphia. Perhaps, the team shares those thoughts after a solid 2013 season.
