Falcons Sign RB Kenjon Barner


The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday that they have signed RB Kenjon Barner to a one-year contract.

Barner, 29, is a former sixth-round pick of the Panthers back in 2013. He spent just over a year in Carolina before he was traded to the Eagles in return for a conditional seventh-round pick that did not meet the qualifications.

The Eagles waived him with an injury settlement at the start of the 2014 season and later brought him back on a future/reserve contract. After Philadelphia declined to tender him a restricted offer, he signed a one-year contract with the Chargers.

Barner later signed on with the Panthers last year but was cut loose at the start of the season. He was on and off of the Patriots’ roster last year before being claimed by the Panthers back in November and finishing out the year in Carolina. 

In 2018, Barner appeared in nine games and rushed for 71 yards on 19 carries (3.7 YPC) to go along with one reception for three yards and no touchdowns. He also totaled 249 kick and punt return yards.
