Saints Release OT Khalif Barnes, Promote DB Brian Dixon


The New Orleans Saints officially released OT Khalif Barnes on Saturday and promoted DB Brian Dixon from their practice squad.

Barnes, 34, is a former second-round pick by the Jaguars of the 2005 NFL Draft. He spent four years with Jacksonville before signing with the Raiders in 2009.

After seven years in Oakland, Barnes signed a one-year contract with the Saints late in the preseason. Unfortunately, he was among their final roster cuts close to a month ago.

The Saints just signed Barnes to a contract a few days ago.

In 2015, Barnes appeared in 14 games for the Raiders but was limited to playing just 118 snaps.
