Field Yates reports that the New Orleans Saints released veteran OL Khalif Barnes on Friday to make room for QB Joe Callahan, who was claimed off of waivers from the Packers.
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.
Barnes has been on and off of the Saints’ roster this season.
In 2015, Barnes appeared in 14 games for the Raiders but was limited to playing just 118 snaps.
