The Philadelphia Eagles continue to remake their defense, one mid-priced free agent at a time. So much for drafting and developing.

The latest pickup is a pass rusher who should be just hitting his prime. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Eagles added Connor Barwin on a six-year, $36 million contract in which he's able to earn up to $40 million. Barwin is guaranteed $8 million in the first two years of the deal and will be paid $13.5 million in the first three.

The Eagles are buying low on Barwin, like they have with a lot of their free-agent pickups. Barwin was set to make a huge sum in free agency ... if he hit free agency a season ago. But he turned down a long-term deal from the Houston Texans and struggled through a miserable 2012 campaign.

The Eagles are transitioning to a 3-4 defense, even if they won't admit it publicly. Barwin adds another edge rusher for them.
