“I understand that, besides the year [2014] I lead the NFC in sacks [with 14.5], you’re always kind of expandable,” Barwin said on January 9th. “That’s the nature of the NFL, but hopefully we all can work something out.”

Barwin and his Make The World Better foundation has raised more than $685,000 for park renovations in the City of Philadelphia through their annual benefit concert.
