Connor Barwin thanks fans, coaches, Blaine Gabbert … just about everyone in full-page ad

Laces Out

Connor Barwin may have signed a six-year deal with the Eagles last month, but he isn’t forgetting where he began his NFL career. Barwin, who has been known for his eccentric ways, took out a full-page ad in the Houston Press thanking just about everyone in the city. We're not kidding. It's evident that Barwin didn’t want to leave anyone off the long list as it includes Jags QB Blaine Gabbert (because of all the sacks he has on him), Texans coaches, front office personnel, doctors, Bun B, Bombay Pizza, gyms, St. Arnolds Beer and even The Art Car Parade. What a classy gesture. Except the Blaine Gabbert part. That's just rude.
