Linebacker Connor Barwin spent last season with the Rams and the free agent’s search for a job in 2018 will take him to another NFC West team.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Barwin is scheduled to visit the Cardinals this week.

Barwin signed with the Rams last March and went on to start 13 games during the regular season. Barwin had 34 tackles and five sacks and added three tackles and a half-sack in the team’s playoff loss to the Falcons.

Barwin has 55.5 overall sacks in a nine-year career that’s also seen him spend time with the Eagles and Texans. If he signs in Arizona, he’d join Markus Golden as complements to Chandler Jones in the team’s pass rush.

  1. He really is a terrific person. Any team that is lucky enough to have him would love him as a person.

    As a player, I think youre definitely on the back end of your career Connor. Im sorry. Maybe a Chris Long type roll, just relief for the starters, but I only see you playing as a love of the game type thing.

  2. Met Connor at the Eagles facility when my company was working there. He was in the employee cafeteria having lunch with some of the maintenance staff. If you didn’t know he was, you wouldn’t have guessed in a million years he was a player. I spend a lot of time in my work around rich and/or famous people (although I am definitely neither), and I always judge them by how they treat people like that. I wish him the best wherever he winds up.

  3. Sounds like he would be a good signing for the Cardinals. They are needing to sign traditional Linebackers, have little money, virtually no Veteran leadership on defense besides Peterson, and he sounds like a good guy to have around newbie players. This could work out to be made-to-order for both of them.
