Browns add Kevin Barnes

Free-agent cornerback Kevin Barnes has signed a one-year contract with the Browns, the club said Monday.

Barnes, 26, appeared in a pair of games for Detroit last season before being released in September. The Lions acquired him in the preseason from Washington.

Barnes’ most extensive NFL action came with the Redskins, who drafted him in Round Three in 2009. Barnes appeared in 29 games for Washington (three starts), recording 45 tackles and intercepting three passes.

Barnes (6-1, 190) seems likely to compete for a reserve role with Cleveland, with ex-Falcons corner Chris Owens and second-year pros Johnson Bademosi and Trevin Wade among the other candidates for backup spots. Also, third-year cornerback Buster Skrine would figure to be no worse than the third option at the position if the Browns add another starter-caliber corner in free agency or the draft, which would increase the competition for the spots down the depth chart.

    This is the Browns overcompensating the error of passing on Robert Griffin. No it doesn’t help to pick up a failed Ex-Redskins…you passed on RGIII Cleveland. Yes that really happened! #Factoryofsadness

    More roster filler guys, these last moves have done nothing to make this team better

    Johnson Bademosi is our answer at corner.

    Thanks for nothing, Haslam. He comes in and already says the team won’t do much next year. Now I read that he wants to change the uniforms and possibly the colors. He does that and I will personally burn the stadium down. Go change the Vols uniforms, Jimmy!!

    So what if Haslem wants to change things some it is his team isn’t. We haven’t done anything in so long so some change just might be good for us. I would rather see the team colors stay like they are but dress em up some change the look a little bit, oh and while your at it how about some chearleaders.

    It’s funny how Kevin Barnes use to be a Redskin…. And he wasn’t worth a damn… Yet another great draft pick by the great Vincent Cerrato.
