RICHMOND – Evaluating options as they look to address a depth problem at inside linebacker, the Redskins hosted free agent linebacker Nick Barnett Tuesday afternoon.
Barnett arrived at the Redskins’ training camp facility in Richmond, and shortly after 3 p.m. went through a brief on-field workout for team officials, including general manager Bruce Allen. Linebackers coach Bob Slowik ran the workout, and then Barnett talked briefly with defensive coordinator Jim Haslett.
Barnett declined an interview request as he headed into the building, saying, “I’m on their schedule right now. I’ve got to go jump in the shower. Hopefully, I’ll be here tomorrow, too.”
The 6-foot-2, 230-pound Barnett spent the past two years with Buffalo, playing outside linebacker in their 3-4 defense. He spent the first eight years of his career in Green Bay, playing middle linebacker in their 4-3 defense and then played inside linebacker when the Packers switched to the 3-4.
Barnett, 32, recorded 112 tackles and two sacks while starting all 16 games for Buffalo last season. He has been a starter for his whole NFL career. Barnett had a knee injury last December, but didn’t miss a game.
Barnett was cut by Buffalo this offseason because he was owed $3.5 million.
