With the Eagles season in the rearview mirror, the team has moved forward with its offseason responsibilities. First up each offseason is the handling of the coaching staff and front office turnover. The team is still searching for an offensive coordinator, and as of today they are searching for a new defensive backs coach.
On the front office side of things, the Eagles have had some developments there as it appears that former Eagle Connor Barwin has joined the team for a second time.
This isn't too much of a surprise, as NFL Insider Adam Caplan first hinted at this move last week.
This isn't the first time Barwin has made it clear he wanted to be back in Philadelphia. Last summer he said he was in talks with Howie Roseman about a reunion on the field, and he was fully prepared to become a role player for the 2019 Eagles. Instead, the Eagles decided not to invest in the veteran and stick with their young players. Barwin announced his retirement as a football player in October.
His official role isn't known yet, but since he is at the Shrine Game practices this week the sense is that he will play a role in scouting players. There is no telling how well he will do or just how far he can go in his role, but maybe he will eventually have a role similar to the one Brian Dawkins had. Dawkins served as the executive of football operations for player development in Philadelphia from 2016 to 2018.
