Eagles trade Allen Barbre to Broncos

The Eagles announced today that they released offensive lineman Allen Barbre. But not so fast.

Barbre has instead been traded to the Broncos, the team announced.

The Eagles didn’t get much for Barbre — just a conditional draft pick in 2019 — but getting anything at all for a player the team already announced it would cut is a plus. Apparently after the Eagles put out the announcement of the decision to release Barbre, they decided to see if there were any offers for him, and it turned out that the Broncos were willing to make an offer.

The Broncos had been looking to add some depth to their offensive line, and now they’ve got it. Barbre is no lock to make the roster, but he’s got a shot, and if he does contribute in Denver, Philadelphia will get something for him. It’s a move that has the potential to work for both teams.

    Desperate attempt to block Mack #52

    Hahahaha remind me again what Mack did the last time he faced the Broncos? And don’t forget the Broncos offensive line was trash last year.

  2. I like this move for the Broncos. PFF rated Barbre the #14 ranked OG last year. Now the Broncos have 2 top 20 OG’s.

    The Green doormat making the key moves to stay in last place of the division.

    From the dope who predicted Robert Griffin the Turd would revolutionize the QB position.

    Ouch

  5. This is your typical pre-season veteran shuffle. If we keep him you can a late round pick. Expect to hear about one of these a day throughout the summer. Marginal veteran gets pushed out on a team which is strong at his group, but is able to make the team on a team that is weaker in the group.

    Two of these today. I count Lucky Whitehead as the same sort of thing. Except it was waiver wire
