Source: Eagles bring in Kenjon Barner for visit

The Philadelphia Eagles brought in former Oregon running back and kick returner Kenjon Barner for a visit Friday, according to a league source.

The Eagles traded for Barner earlier this year from the Carolina Panthers for a conditional 2015 seventh-round draft pick before releasing him with an injury settlement in September.

Barner played for Eagles coach Chip Kelly at Oregon.

Barner was drafted by Carolina in the sixth round.

At Oregon, the 5-foot-9, 185-pound running back and returner ranked second in school history in rushing yards with 3,623 and tied for second with 41 rushing touchdowns on 582 attempts. He averaged 22.5 yards and scored one touchdown on kickoff returns, while averaging 10.1 yards with one touchdown on punt returns in college. As a senior, , Barner earned first-team All-America honors by rushing for 1,767 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Barner played in eight regular season games and one playoff contest as a rookie with the Panthers in 2013.
