Ravens trade Antwan Barnes to Eagles

The Ravens and Eagles have completed a trade, sending defensive end Antwan Barnes to Philadelphia.

Baltimore gets an undisclosed 2011 draft pick in the deal.

Barnes has played a total of 38 games in the last three seasons, without any starts.

Barnes may be best known for a brutal hit he delivered on Eagles punter Sav Rocca. We’ll be curious to know what Rocca says the first time Barnes walks into the Eagles’ locker room.

    Rare bad trade by the ravens in my opinion. Barnes looked to be developing nicely and without Kindle being able to play I don’t think it was the time to give up a rush linebacker.

    The Eagles roster is basically a bunch of backups

    what are u talking about?
    There is not a starter on this team that couldnt start for more then half of the teams in the NFL. I only say that because there is no way a guy like Kolb would start of Peyton Manning or someone like that but if the Eagles cut all 22 starters right now they would all have a starting job on a new team with in a week.
    The Eagles arent trading for these guys to be starters they are building depth which every team that wants to be contiunally successful does.
    There is a reason why the Eagles havent had long streches of bad seasons for the better part of 2 decades.

    So Ravens would rather trade Barnes… instead of Burgess, Ellerbe, or Gooden?
    This is what hurts the Ravens all the time. They love their draft picks more than, you know, actually trying to make a run at another Super Bowl. They’d rather brag about how they are, once again, champions of the draft.

    Remember that Kindle is in town for his evaluation. Maybe this means he may be able to play this year? Or maybe they really like what they’ve seen from Paul Kruger this preseason.

    This post doesn’t make any sense. Barnes was drafted by the Ravens in the 4th round…

    Can someone tell me why the Eagles are stocking up on so many Defensive Ends?
    They took so many in the draft, traded for Tapp, and now this trade?
    I’d feel better if they started shoring up that creaky offensive line!
    Andy Reid usually makes sure the O-line is solid, I hope the Eagles O-line situation doesn’t revert back to the way it was in the pre-Reid days.
