PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Connor Barwin is not a Philadelphia Eagle.

So perhaps Barwin would be the subsequent Eagles basic supervisor?
“I’ve by no means informed anyone this, however I’d think about myself perhaps that after I’m finished enjoying soccer I’d wish to get into administration,” Barwin stated Tuesday on the 94WIP Carlin & Reese Present, in his first interview since signing with the LA Rams.
