Jets activated OLB Antwan Barnes from the reserve/PUP list.

Barnes blew out his ACL in Week 5 of the 2013 season. He gives the Jets' defense another outside-edge rusher, a position at which Gang Green has generally struggled this year. The Jets cut S Josh Bush to make roster room.

Jets placed OLB Antwan Barnes (knee) on reserve/PUP.

Barnes, a seven-year veteran with 25.5 career sacks, tore his ACL in Week 5 of last season. He will have to sit out the first six games before being eligible for activation.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 10:15:00 AM

Jets OLB Antwan Barnes (ACL surgery) remains without a timetable for a return.

Barnes has been cleared for sprints and "quick-step drills," but coach Rex Ryan was coy when asked about Barnes' timetable. Barnes' roster spot could be up in the air after the Jets signed Jason Babin.

Jets OLB Antwan Barnes (ACL surgery) anticipates being ready for the start of training camp.

Barnes blew out his ACL last Week 5, which should give him plenty of time to have a successful recovery. He'll compete for a reserve role behind starters Quinton Coples and Calvin Pace. Barnes has 20.5 sacks the past four seasons.
Wed, Jul 9, 2014 03:54:00 PM

Coach Rex Ryan said OLB Antwan Barnes (knee) may not be ready for the start of training camp.

Barnes went down in Week 5 with a torn ACL. He had two sacks before the injury as a situational pass rusher. Now entering his age-30 season, due a $1.2 million salary, and recovering slow from the injury, Barnes is going to have to earn his roster spot. Luckily for him, the Jets didn't add much at the position.

Jets placed OLB Antwan Barnes (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Barnes went down during Monday night's upset of the Falcons. The eight-year veteran and situational pass rusher finishes with three tackles and two sacks in five games.
Wed, Oct 9, 2013 11:59:00 AM

Jets OLB Antwan Barnes injured his knee in Monday night's Week 5 game against the Falcons.

Barnes is a situational pass rusher. He has two sacks on the young season.
Mon, Oct 7, 2013 11:18:00 PM

Jets signed OLB Antwan Barnes, formerly of the Chargers.

28-year-old Barnes is a situational defender and special teamer, but he has 14 sacks over the past two seasons and gives the Jets much-needed juice as an edge pass rusher in sub-packages. Considering the Jets' lack of outside-edge rushers, it's not out of the question that Barnes will get a legitimate chance to start. He began his career playing in Rex Ryan's Baltimore defenses.
Mon, Mar 18, 2013 01:29:00 PM

The Dolphins have had discussions with free agent OLB Antwan Barnes.

The sides talked earlier in the week, but discussions haven't gotten off the ground. Barnes has been mainly a 3-4 outside linebacker, but he'd play end in Miami. The Jets hosted Barnes for a visit this week, but he left without a deal.
Sat, Mar 16, 2013 02:46:00 PM

Free agent OLB Antwan Barnes left his Jets visit without a contract.

The Jets fail to land another player. New York was reportedly only willing to offer Barnes $2 million per year, and he's better off seeing what else is out there. Barnes has 14 sacks over the last two seasons.
Fri, Mar 15, 2013 04:49:00 PM

The Jets will host free agent OLB Antwan Barnes on Thursday.

The Ravens' 2007 fourth-round pick, Barnes began his career playing in Rex Ryan's Baltimore defense. Barnes could add some juice to New York's pass rush, but they're reportedly only willing to offer roughly $2M per year.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 11:06:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson reports the Browns and Colts are expected to pursue free agent OLB Antwan Barnes.

Wilson considers Barnes, 28, a fallback option for clubs that swing and miss on Paul Kruger or Cliff Avril. After recording 11 sacks in a 2011 reserve role, Barnes was limited to three last year in San Diego. He should be affordable.

Chargers placed DE Antwan Barnes on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

G Reggie Wells has been signed in a corresponding roster move. A reserve defensive end and special teamer, Barnes first injured his hamstring in Week 9, and aggravated it on Sunday. A six-year veteran, he'll be an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.
Wed, Dec 5, 2012 01:59:00 PM

Chargers OLB Antwan Barnes suffered a hamstring injury in Thursday night's win over the Chiefs.

Barnes says he felt the hamstring "pop" while covering a fourth quarter punt. He will have an MRI on Friday, but the early signs are "positive." Barnes says its "nothing major" and he "should be fine." A hamstring "popping" is never a positive development. The six-year veteran is part of the rotation at outside 'backer but is more of a special teams cog.
