The Bills actually signed him off of the Jets’ practice squad in December of last year before placing him on waivers during the preseason. Barnes was later claimed by the Jaguars but was, unfortunately, among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

In 2015, Barnes appeared in 10 games and recorded four tackles and no sacks.
