On Thursday, Adam Schefter reported that Matt Barkley had signed his contract with the Philadelphia Eagles and rather than just report the signing, he decided to add some commentary to it. Schefter noted that the contract was very different than the one people expected him to sign a year ago when people thought Barkley was a lock for the first overall pick in 2013. Matt Barkley took the comments in stride and responded with his own comical remarks. Barkley has had to hear a lot about how he ruined his draft stock staying in school for one more year, but Barkley doesn’t appear to be bothered by it and has done a very good job playing it off with jokes such as this one.
