The Philadelphia Eagles are waiving former first round draft pick DE Derek Barnett today, as per Adam Schefter.
The 27 year-old Barnett was the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He has never lived up to expectations during his career.
In seven seasons, Barnett has 21.5 sacks. The highlight of his Eagles career is recovering a fumble in the team’s Super Bowl 52 victory.
Rookie edge rusher Nolan Smith will now get more reps in Barnett’s place.
