Redskins Add Barnett To Inside Linebackers

Posted Aug 1, 2013

The Washington Redskins announced that they have signed free agent ILB Nick Barnett and placed RB Tristan Davis on the Exempt/Left Squad list.

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed free agent linebacker Nick Barnett.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

In addition, earlier in the week, the team placed running back Tristan Davis on the Exempt/Left Squad list.

Barnett (6-2, 228) was originally drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the first round (29th overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft.

He played eight seasons in Green Bay (2003-10) before joining the Buffalo Bills as an unrestricted free agent on Aug. 31, 2011. He was released by the Bills on Feb. 11, 2013.

For his career, Barnett has started all 139 games in which he as appeared, compiling 1,026 tackles (722 solo), 42 passes defensed, 20.5 sacks, 12 interceptions (two returned for touchdowns), six fumbles forced and seven fumbles recovered.

He started all 32 of Buffalo’s games in the last two seasons, including the 2011 season in which he tied his career high with three interceptions.

Barnett played collegiately at Oregon State from 1999-2002. He played in 48 games with 29 starts, amassing 249 tackles (143 solo), eight sacks, 30 tackles for loss, 12 passes defensed, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception.

Barnett, 32, attended A.B. Miller H.S. in Fontana, Calif., where he named second-team all-league at linebacker as a senior despite missing the final four games because of injury. He was born on May 27, 1981.

Davis (5-10, 211) originally signed with the Detroit Lions as a college free agent on Aug. 24, 2009. He first joined the Redskins as a practice squad free agent on Oct. 26, 2011.

He was released on Nov. 8 of that season and re-signed on Nov. 22 and spent the entire 2012 season on the Redskins’ Reserve/Injured list.
