The Philadelphia Eagles have reportedly given starter Allen Barbre to request a trade. He has been a starter on the offensive line the past two seasons.

Barbre, a 32-year-old guard, has one-year remaining on his contract that will carry a $2.25 million cap hit. This is part of the three-year extension prior to the start of the 2014 season.

According to NJ.com, the Eagles would like to start Isaac Seumalo in Barbre’s guard spot. Seumalo played in nine games as a rookie, including four starts.

He will be 33-year-old in June — and will be a short-term answer for any team looking for offensive line help. The Eagles would likely request a mid-to-late round pick for him.

The Eagles offensive line could be different in 2017, as Barbre is not the only one who may not return. Jason Peters, who the team asked to take a pay cut, may not return, even though the team would like to keep him. The team is also expected to release Jason Kelce.

Barbre joins Mychal Kendricks on the trade market. So far, they have not found a trade partner for Kendricks, but things should heat up for these two next week when the new league-year starts in the National Football League on March 9th.
