Broncos trade for Allen Barbre, offensive guard. Conditional 2019 draft pick goes to Philadelphia

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Broncos made a roster move by trading for guard Allen Barbre (pronounced barber). Denver sent a conditional 2019 late-round draft pick to Philadelphia as compensation for acquiring Barbre. President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced deal on Wednesday (7/26). Barbre (6-4, 310 pounds) is a 10th-year player who has appeared in 76 career regular-season games (36 starts) and has post-season experience with three postseason contests with Green Bay in 2008.

A conditional pick means that there is language in the trade that has to be met before the pick can be to be moved to Philadelphia. It could say he has to play a certain amount of games, etc. and of course, pass a physical.

He was drafted by the Packers in the fourth round (119th overall) of the 2007 out of Missouri Southern State University. During the past two seasons Barbe started 28 games  mostly at Left Guard but did see some action at Right Tackle, so the versatility is a plus.  He will join the guard depth chart that includes Ron Leary, Max Garcia, Michael Schofield, Connor McGovern, Billy Turner and Chris Muller.

Barbre started 28 games over the last two seasons for the Eagles, and he will join a group at guard that includes Ron Leary, Max Garcia, Michael Schofield, Connor McGovern, Billy Turner and Chris Muller. It was reported earlier in the off-season that the Eagles allowed him to seek a trade, so it seems they may have finally found a taker.

This will be his 5th NFL team.

  • Green Bay Packers (2007–2010),  (2011–2013)
  • Seattle Seahawks (2010)
  • Miami Dolphins (2010–2011)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (2013–2016)
  • Denver Broncos (2017–Present)

The 33-year-old offensive guard is entering his 10th season  and comes with a 2017 salary cap hit of $2,050,000 which is also his base salary.  He  graduated from East Newton High School in Granby, Mo., and was born on June 22, 1984.

The transaction returns the Broncos roster to 90 following the cutting of rookie undrafted free agent linebacker Josh Banderas on Monday.

He was graded as the 11th best Left Guard in the NFL by profootballfocus.com
