  • Raiders' Brandon Barnes: Lands in Oakland

    Barnes signed a contract with the Raiders on Friday.

    Barnes was waived/injured by the Lions back in May and had been on the team's injured reserve until he was waived a couple weeks ago. Now, he'll join the Raiders for the preseason, but given their current tight end depth, he should be considered a long shot to make the final roster.

    The undrafted rookie out of Alabama State previously attended training camp with the Jets before being waived in September.

  • Brandon Barnes: Cut by Jets

    Barnes was waived by the Jets on Friday, Connor Hughes of The Star-Ledger reports.

    Barnes didn't make an impact in the box score during the preseason, so his exclusion from the 53-man roster shouldn't come as a huge surprise. He will now hit the free-agent market, assuming he goes unclaimed through waivers as expected.
