The Facts: The Eagles did not extend a restricted free-agent tender to Barner, according to a league source.
Diehards Line: That decision makes Barner a free agent and likely ends his Eagles career unless they try to bring him back at a reduced price. As a reserve running back last season, Barner had 27 carries for 129 yards and two touchdowns. He also averaged 30.8 yards per kickoff return. In two seasons with the Eagles, Barner had 55 carries for 253 yards. The Eagles still have Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles, and Ryan Mathews under contract, although Mathews could be a salary-cap casualty whenever he recovers from a neck injury.
