I love this move. In another thread, I mentioned that I think Idzik will try to create a fast defense like what Seattle & Tampa had while he was there. We already had Davis who had a 4.5 speed. Barnes ran a 4.4 when he was in the draft. I know that was a while ago, but he is still fast. Great signing

Really happy they closed this deal.

Barnes had a huge year as a pass rusher in 2011. Come 2012, he was sitting behind veteran Shaun Phillips, free agent signing Jarret Johnson, first round pick Melvin Ingram, and former first round bust Larry English (AJ Smith trying to justify the pick). When Barnes was on the field, PFF says he was a productive pass rusher.

The Jets are banking on that Barnes will play at his 2011 level with more opportunities on the field. He had 41 tackles and 11 sacks that season.

#Jets and Barnes are working through final details of contract. His agent said he's on it right now.

Yeah I think it's just a case of getting everything finalised according to report on his twitter etc.

Great signing!! Hope we haven't paid much for him as there are so many olb left in FA so hope it's around the $2mil a year range
