Connor Barwin thanks everyone in Houston from the delivery guy to the fans
Connor Barwin signed a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason after spending the first three seasons of his career with the Houston Texans. He was one of the more versatile linebackers in the game with Houston, particularly in 2011 when he racked up 11.5 sacks. As many players do, Barwin wanted to think his former organization and their fans on his way out the door.
However, the former second-round pick did things a bit differently than most. We have seen full-page ads thanking the fans and even heartfelt hand-written letters. But to my knowledge, no athlete has ever taken the time to thank the delivery guy, his cleaning lady, the popcorn guy and cheesecake. Those were just a few of the bases Barwin covered in his thank you letter to the Houston area.
We knew he was a generous guy after this offer to Jeremy Lin last year, but Barwin truly went above and beyond with his farewell message. Very unique and nicely done.
