- Atlanta also met with veteran LB Tim Dobbins this week, however neither player was signed to a contract.
The Falcons unfortunately lost LB Sean Weatherspoon for the season after he suffered a ruptured Achilles this past week.
Barnett, 33, signed on with the Redskins last year and appeared in 14 games before he suffered a MCL tear in December and was subsequently placed on injured reserve.
He hasn’t found any reported interest this offseason, so we’ll have to see what the Falcons elect to do in the coming weeks to add some much needed depth at inside linebacker.
