That was the initial report, Barnes himself said he was traded to the Lions.

He sucks. I hope Detroit gave us a late round pick this or next year. For whatever reason he plays better at safety if you put him at CB than O boy.

Dude is smart and has a nose for the ball. Certainly not the cure for our CB woes, but I think this may be alot bigger pickup than others might think.

I like his 6'1" frame, besides that I know nothing of him. Here's to hoping.

Phreak so this guy could be a Mayhew special trade? I've missed those.

He probably takes Alphonso Smiths spot.

Locker room conflict?

But really that was a hard hit.

Not saying you're wrong but Atlanta fans told us the same thing when we traded for Chris Houston.

That and fans typically hate a player right when they get traded but didn't hate them a month earlier.

He doesn't suck. He was just a pick from Zorn era (error) and Shanny likes his own guys. Barnes is the type of guy that if he becomes a very solid starter for years to come I wouldn't be surprised. Also if he just fades outta the league in a few years I wouldn't be surprised.

He's 6'1'' and fairly athletic, probably won't be the answer to the CB problems but I'll take it. Still could use a real upgrade to the secondary.
