Eagles sign Barkley

The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with QB Matt Barkley on a four-year contract Thursday. Barkley is the seventh of eight Eagles 2013 draft choices to sign with the team.

Barkley (6-foot-2, 227) was the Eagles fourth-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft (98th overall). The 22-year old was the all-time leading passer in both Pac-12 Conference and USC history. A four-year starter for the Trojans, Barkley finished his career with over 12,000 passing yards and became the only player in conference history to throw for over 100 touchdowns (116) in a career.

A native of Santa Ana, CA, Barkley attended Mater Dei High School where he finished his career as the all-time passing yardage leader in Orange County.
