The Philadelphia Eagles signed veteran offensive lineman Allen Barbre to a three-year contract extension.

Barbre is now under contract through the 2017 season.

Barbre has played tackle and guard .

“Allen has great versatility and his ability to play both outside and inside on the offensive line makes him so valuable to what we do,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. He’s been in this league for a number of years and we know we can count on him to step up and fill in whenever he is called upon. When Jason Peters went down in Green Bay last season, Allen jumped right in and our offense didn’t miss a beat.”

Barbre, 29, has started seven games and played in 47 games.

He's a former Green Bay Packers fourth-round draft pick who has previous stints with the Miami Dolphins and Seattle Seahawks.
