The Eagles will not extend a restricted free-agent tender to running back Kenjon Barner, according to a league source. That decision makes Barner a free agent and likely ends his Eagles career unless they try to bring him back at a reduced price.
The Eagles could have used an original round tender at a cost of $1.797 million, but that is more than the Eagles are apparently looking to spend on Barner.
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.
