Veteran edge rusher Connor Barwin thought very carefully about where to sign a year ago, actively seeking an opportunity for playing time as well as the possibility of chasing a Super Bowl title.

Ultimately, Barwin decided on the New York Giants, who signed him to a two-year, $3.5 million contract.

However, similar to running back Jonathan Stewart, things did not quite work out in the way each side had hoped and as a result, their union now appears to be coming to an abrupt end.

Jordan Ranaan of ESPN reports that the Giants and Barwin will “part ways” prior to the start of the new league year in March.

Barwin seemed to imply as much in an earlier Instagram post.

Barwin appeared in 15 games in 2018, recording 12 tackles (six solo), one sack and four passes defensed. However, his playing time decreased substantially as the season wore on and the Giants gave more snaps to linebacker Lorenzo Carter and some of their other young players.

Barwin was on the books for $1.865 million in 2019, but the team will save most of that in salary cap space as the veteran will carry just a $365,000 dead cap hit.
