Former Green Bay Packers Linebacker Nick Barnett Signs With Buffalo Bills

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Buffalo Bills have signed former Green Bay Packers inside linebacker Nick Barnett. The Packers had released Barnett, who lost his starting place to Desmond Bishop, due to salary concerns as Barnett was scheduled to make over $4 million this season. He hasn't taken a pay cut at all with the Bills, who have signed him to a three-year, $12 million contract with $6 million guaranteed.

For the money that the Bills gave Barnett, they will certainly give him a chance to win the starting job at the very least. He could be competing with former outside linebacker Arthur Moatswho our own Brian Galliford had some interesting thoughts on.

With the departures of Barnett and Brandon Chillar, the Packers are lacking in depth at inside linebacker. Their various releases have given them some cap space to work with if there's an inexpensive free agent that Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy like, but it looks at the moment as if the Packers will be going with what they have at ILB.
