Eagles extend OL Barbre's contract

The SportsXchange

The Philadelphia Eagles reached agreement on a three-year extension with backup offensive lineman Allen Barbre on Tuesday.

The contract now runs through the 2017 season. Barbre signed his original two-year deal with the Eagles in January 2013.

"Allen has great versatility and his ability to play both outside and inside on the offensive line makes him so valuable to what we do," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "He's been in this league for a number of years and we know we can count on him to step up and fill in whenever he is called upon. When Jason Peters went down in Green Bay last season, Allen jumped right in and our offense didn't miss a beat."

Barbre, a six-year veteran, has made seven starts and played in 47 games with the Eagles, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks.
