08/24/15 - RB Kenjon Barner has returned two punt returns for touchdowns in the Eagles' first two preseason games. He also has run for another touchdown. Barner is battling rookie Raheem Mostert for what is expected to be the fourth and final running back spot on the roster. Coach Chip Kelly admitted that Barner, who played for him at Oregon, is "making a huge case" to be part of the roster.
"He's putting himself in position," Kelly said.

08/19/14 - RB/KR Kenjon Barner was acquired by the Eagles from the Panthers Tuesday (Aug. 19) for a conditional seventh-round draft choice in 2015.
Said head coach Chip Kelly, "Kenjon will hopefully bring some depth to both our running back and return positions. He's obviously a guy I know really well from Oregon, where he had a very productive career. He has a lot of speed, explosiveness and had a knack for making some really big plays. But our plan with him right now is get him in Philadelphia as soon as we can and plug him in at running back and returner and let him compete."
Last year, Barner was drafted in the sixth round by the Panthers. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound running back and returner finished his collegiate career ranked second in school history in rushing yards (3,623) and tied for second with 41 rushing touchdowns.
