Top Cody Barton News

  • Commanders' Cody Barton: Inks one-year deal with Commanders

    The Commanders and Barton agreed to terms on a one-year contract Monday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.

    A third-round pick back in 2019, Barton became a full-time starter last season in Seattle, playing 77 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He racked up 136 tackles and two sacks and should slide in as a snaps-eater in the middle of coach Ron Rivera's defense in Washington.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Piles up 136 stops

    Barton posted 136 tackles (84 solo), six pass breakups, two sacks and two interceptions over 17 regular-season games.

    Barton's playing time fluctuated during the season, bottoming out at a 44 percent snap share in Week 8, but he started the Seahawks' final six regular-season games and the playoff game. The 2019 third-round pick is headed towards free agency in March, but the Seahawks may want to re-sign him, especially because Jordyn Brooks underwent ACL surgery Jan. 19 and may not be ready for the start of the 2023 season. While Barton struggles in coverage, he's a high-end IDP option when he's in the lineup.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Mediocre outing in win

    Barton recorded six tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 23-6 win over the Jets.

    Barton had gone six consecutive games with at least seven stops made prior to Sunday, but he ultimately failed to reach that mark again in Week 17 versus New York. With the NFL's No. 3 leading tackler in Jordyn Brooks having suffered a season-ending torn ACL this past weekend, Barton figures to absorb a larger role in Week 18 against the Rams, and if applicable, the postseason.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Logs another solid effort

    Barton recorded nine tackles (five solo) in Saturday's 24-10 loss to the Chiefs.

    Barton has seemingly found his stride down the stretch of the regular season, as he's now averaging 10.2 tackles per game over his last six matchups. The 26-year-old should continue playing a prominent role in the Seahawks' defensive game plan when Seattle hosts the Jets on New Year's Day.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Massive outing Week 15

    Barton posted 15 tackles (seven solo) and a pass defended in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Panthers.

    Barton logged a season high in tackles while also notching double-digit stops for the fifth time in 13 games. The fourth-year linebacker also defended exactly one pass for the fourth week in a row, increasing his season total to six. Barton is now one of two Seahawks defenders, along with team-leading tackler Jordyn Brooks, to post over 100 stops this season. Barton should have an important role in slowing down San Francisco's prolific offense during Thursday Night Football.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Tallies 12 tackles

    Barton recorded 12 total tackles and one pass defended in Sunday's 40-34 loss to the Raiders.

    Barton matched his season-high in tackles, also marking his fourth game with 10 or more stops. He also chipped in his fourth pass defended of the season. Through 11 games on the campaign, Barton already has a career-best 83 tackles while also chipping in two sacks and an interception.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Productive outing in loss

    Barton recorded nine tackles (eight solo) and one interception during Sunday's 21-16 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Barton notched his most tackles in a game since Week 5 and picked off his first pass of the season, which set up a fourth-quarter touchdown for Seattle's offense. Across 10 appearances, the fourth-year linebacker has totaled 71 tackles, three pass defenses, two sacks and one interception.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Role decreasing

    Barton posted two tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cardinals.

    Barton played just 39 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 6. His role has been in flux recently, as he had snap shares of 57 percent in Week 4 and 78 percent in Week 5. When he's on the field on a full-time basis, Barton is a stud -- he posted 46 tackles (26 solo) and a sack through the first five games. However, his steep drop in usage recently is a serious concern, and fantasy managers should manage their expectations in Week 7 against the Chargers.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Collects game-high 12 stops

    Barton recorded 12 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 39-32 loss to the Saints.

    Barton's 12 tackles in Week 5 now brings his total up to 46 on the season. With former Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner shipped to the Rams in March, the fourth-year linebacker has thus far enjoyed his first campaign with more defensive snaps (276) than special-teams snaps (69). Barton is slated to operate in a similar role Sunday when the Seahawks host the Cardinals.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: No injury designation for Week 3

    Barton doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Barton didn't practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday due to a shoulder issue, but he appears to be full go heading into Week 3. Per Bell, Barton could continue operating as the primary slot cornerback with Justin Coleman (calf) doubtful for Sunday's contest. Across two games, Barton has totaled 21 tackles and one sack.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Does not practice Wednesday

    Barton (shoulder/hip) was listed as a non-participant on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Barton is dealing with unspecified shoulder and hip issues following his 11-tackle performance in Week 2. The 25-year-old has stepped up as Seattle's starting inside linebacker following the departure of Bobby Wagner this offseason, and he has already recorded 21 tackles and two sacks over the team's first two games of the 2021 campaign. With Barton's injury status now up in the air, Nick Bellore and Tanner Muse could both stand to see increased usage as Seattle's only other healthy inside linebackers heading into Sunday's game against Atlanta.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Limited Thursday

    Barton (shoulder/hip) was listed as a limited participant on the Seahawks' practice report Thursday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Barton returned to practice after sitting out with shoulder and hip injuries during Seattle's sessions Wednesday, though the exact nature and severity of these issues are still unclear. The starting inside linebacker recorded 11 tackles while playing 96 percent of the Seahawks' defensive snaps in Week 2, and his ability to participate Thursday is a positive sign for his health heading into this Sunday's game against Atlanta.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Another double-digit tackle outing

    Barton notched 11 tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 27-7 loss to the 49ers.

    Barton moved into a starting role in the absence of Bobby Wagner and has recorded 21 tackles and a sack through his first two games. The 2019 third-round pick is playing nearly every defensive snap and has already proven to be a high-volume tackler, so he should be rostered in basically every IDP league.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Impressive opener

    Barton recorded 10 tackles (eight solo), two tackles for loss and a sack in Monday's 17-16 win over the Broncos.

    Barton moved into a starting role following the departure of Bobby Wagner this offseason. There were some concerns about his abilities, but he put most of those concerns to rest in the season opener with an outstanding performance, as he stopped two screen passes in the backfield and took down QB Russell Wilson. We should expect Barton to continue playing nearly every defensive snap moving forward. Fantasy managers should pick him up if he's available.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Running with first team

    Barton has been working with the first-team defense during training camp, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Barton is the next man up after the Seahawks cut Bobby Wagner and didn't sign or draft a viable replacement during the offseason. Last year, Barton started two games and posted 18 tackles (12 solo) and a pass breakup. It wouldn't be surprising if the team brings in some competition for Barton, but as long as he's in a starting role, he should have secure IDP upside.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Projected to start in 2022

    Barton is projected to start at linebacker in 2022 after the Seahawks didn't choose a linebacker during the 2022 NFL Draft, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    The Seahawks had a lot of needs heading into the draft and apparently felt comfortable with Barton as their starting linebacker next to Jordyn Brooks. If Barton can hold off any unexpected challengers, he'll have an opportunity to be a high-end IDP contributor for fantasy purposes. After all, both Brooks and Bobby Wagner -- who is now with the Rams -- topped 170 tackles last year.
