Eagles pound out another extension; Allen Barbre agrees to 3 year extension
After big extensions for Jason Kelce and Jason Peters already this offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles announced it had signed backup Allen Barbre to a three-year deal which will carry him through the 2017 season.
Coach Kelly was very excited to get Barbre locked down to build the camaraderie on the offensive line.
“Allen has great versatility and his ability to play both outside and inside on the offensive line makes him so valuable to what we do,” coach Chip Kelly said in a statement. “He’s been in this league for a number of years and we know we can count on him to step up and fill in whenever he is called upon. When Jason Peters went down in Green Bay last season, Allen jumped right in and our offense didn’t miss a beat.”
