RICHMOND — Free agent linebacker Nick Barnett remained in town Wednesday, a day after arriving here to work out for Washington Redskins officials. But it still was not certain if he would be signed by the team.
A person familiar with the deliberations said a deal remained possible.
Barnett, a former starter for the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills, met with the Redskins’ coaches Tuesday, hours after his workout in front of team officials.
The Redskins have been seeking to add a linebacker since reserve Keenan Robinson suffered a torn pectoral muscle last week. They tried but failed to sign another free agent, former Denver starter Joe Mays, who picked the Houston Texans instead.
