“Kevin Barnes said he was traded to detroit. Just talked to him. Initially he thought he was being released. Not sure for what yet. #redskins,” Keim tweeted.
Barnes wasn’t working out as the Redskins nickel corner last season. However, the 2009 third-round pick did have two interceptions in 15 games last year. There is the possibility that Barnes could be the other starting corner opposite of Chris Houston. Neither rookie Bill Bentley nor Jacob Lacey have impressed thus far this preseason.
