Eagles Release Allen Barbre

The Philadelphia Eagles made a bit of a surprising move on Wednesday, releasing veteran offensive lineman Allen Barbre.

Barbre had spent most of the last two seasons starting at left guard, and had previously provided the team with some versatile depth off of the bench since signing with the club in 2013.

Earlier in the week, the team named second-year guard Isaac Seumalo the starter at left guard, and apparently released Barbre to give him an opportunity to find a starting role elsewhere.

General Manager Howie Roseman did leave the door open for Barbre to return if he’s unable to find a suitable opportunity on the open market.

The Eagles’ offensive line position was a little crowded, and the addition of Chance Warmack and the resigning of Stefan Wisniewski made Barbre expendable.

I felt Barbre was a mediocre starter, and ideally a serviceable guy off of the bench that could come in and play multiple positions if needed. I don’t like the idea of the Eagles parting with quality depth, but unlike previous seasons, depth really isn’t a big concern for them on the offensive line this year.

Hey DE, Hope your Summer has been going well.. How about the Job Tony Larussa has done in rebuilding the Arizona Diamondbacks into a Playoff Contending Team kind of out of nowhere too…

I think the Cardinals will be heading into a Decline and they need to get Younger at QB and Fitz is another Year Older.. They have lost some leadership on that Defense the last couple of off-seasons.. Just not the same Team..

No Surprise here and frees-up some $2.1 Million in Salary Cap Space.. .
Issac Seumalo has been named the Starter at LG with Chance Warmark and Steve Wisnewski as the Back-ups at Guard/Center

Starting OL from L-R (Peters,Seumalo,Kelce,Brooks, Johnson)

Reserves will be Chance Warmack, Steve Wisnewski, Big Vatai for sure and
then maybe 1 More from a bunch of Players (Dallas Thomas, Josh Andrews, Matt Tobin or Dillon Gordon who they seem high on due to his Versatility)

I look for Warmack to end up at LG with the possibility still of a Kelsey move
