Surprised by the trade but figured Chip Kelly would pick him up after we cut him. A draft pick for a guy who was on his way out. Good deal.

Shucks. I had hopes for Barner. Better off in Philly though.

good on DG for getting something for him... he was more than likely on his way out the door

This is an amazing job by Gettleman. Getting something, even if it is a 7th round pick, for a guy who was probably not going to make the team is incredible. Something Hurney could never do.

Nice.  Best for him and the team.  If he's gonna make any roster, it'll be with the team that hired his old college coach and we get a 7th round pick back for a guy who didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of making the roster.  Win/win.

Fozzy and Darin battle for the 3rd spot coming at the expense of the Pats evil empire.

So is it a 7th that could possibly become a 6th? Or is it a 7th that could turn into nothing?

Makes sense. He was going to get cut, ride the pine, or be practice squad fodder, if he even made the team with Carolina.

 

This way, the Panther did him a favor. Hopefully, he'll stick, do something with Phillie.

Pick for a dude we were gonna cut. Gettlemagic.

Bring on the Foz.


Doesn't quite make up for the pick Gettlemagic spent on him, unfortunately ;)
