Eagles Acquire Kenjon Barner from Panthers
Barner, from the University of Oregon, has just six carries for seven yards and two catches in his NFL career while battling foot/ankle issues.
Said head coach Chip Kelly: “Kenjon will hopefully bring some depth to both our running back and return positions. He’s obviously a guy I know really well from Oregon, where he had a very productive career. He has a lot of speed, explosiveness and had a knack for making some really big plays. But our plan with him right now is get him in Philadelphia as soon as we can and plug him in at running back and returner and let him compete.”
The pick is likely contingent on Barner making the 53-man roster.
