Jaguars & Panthers Potential Options For Free Agent TE Gary Barnidge

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, free agent TE Gary Barnidge plans to pause his visits with NFL teams to attend the upcoming Kentucky Derby.

However, once he’s ready to continue speaking with interested teams, Garafolo mentions the Panthers and Jaguars as two possibilities.

Earlier in the day, Barnidge will be taking his first visit and meeting with the Bills on Wednesday.

The Browns surprisingly cut Barnidge loose last week a day after they traded up in round one to get Miami TE David Njoku.

Barnidge, 31, is a former fifth-round pick of the Panthers back in 2008. He spent five years in Carolina before signing a three-year contract with the Browns.

In 2016, Barnidge appeared in all 16 games and caught 55 passes for 612 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 tight end out of 63 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
