Veteran linebacker Antwan Barnes, an unrestricted free agent, spent 2010 with the Chargers.  If the Chargers have their way, he’ll spend 2011 there, too.

But the Jets have other ideas.  Per a league source, both teams are pursuing Barnes.

Barnes, a five-year veteran, spent three seasons in Baltimore and one in Philly before joining the Chargers last year.
