Jaguars signed WR Ramses Barden.

Barden keeps getting chances thanks to his 6-foot-6, 224-pound frame, but nobody has been able to pull any sort of talent out of him since the Giants took him in the third round of the 2009 draft. He was released by the Bills last month. The Jaguars need bodies with Cecil Shorts, Allen Robinson, Ace Sanders, and Mike Brown all either injured or away from the team.

Bills released WR Ramses Barden and LB Nathan Williams.

Always given chances due to his 6-foot-6 frame, Barden is now nearing the end of the line. He has a total of 29 catches and one start on his resume since the Giants took him in the third round of the 2009 draft, and has now lost his camp roster spot to Naaman Roosevelt.

WGR 550 Buffalo considers WR Ramses Barden a "long shot" to make the Bills' 53-man roster.

Beat writer Joe Buscaglia calls Barden's performance at OTAs unimpressive. "There is no deception to his game, he lacks the sort of game speed receivers have to have and is limited really to jump ball scenarios for his effectiveness," writes Buscaglia. Barden, at 6-foot-6 and 224 pounds, should be standing out in non-contact practices in gym shorts. Barden may be running out of chances.
Wed, Jun 4, 2014 04:25:00 PM

Bills signed WR Ramses Barden, LB Willie Jefferson, FS Jajuan Harley, WR Chris Summers and LB Nathan Williams to reserve/futures contracts.

A former third-round pick of the Giants, Barden missed the entire 2013 season after being released in September with an injury settlement. He'll compete for a No. 5 receiver and red-zone specialist role with the Bills. Jefferson (6-5, 234) appeared in six games with the Texans as an undrafted free agent.

Free agent WR Ramses Barden worked out for the Seahawks.

Seattle also hosted WRs Mike Thomas and Danny Coale, along with QB B.J. Coleman. Sidney Rice (torn ACL) recently went on injured reserve, but the Seahawks are expected to get Percy Harvin (hip) back shortly. The team is likely just updating its emergency list. Barden had previously worked out for Houston.
Wed, Nov 6, 2013 01:09:00 PM

Free agent WR Ramses Barden worked out for the Texans on Tuesday.

The Texans also worked out free agent WR Mike Brown. It's the first we've heard of the 6-foot-6 Barden since he was released by the Giants last month. A signing does not appear imminent. Barden's unique size should eventually earn him another NFL chance.
Tue, Oct 22, 2013 05:23:00 PM

Giants released WR Ramses Barden with an injury settlement.

The 6-foot-6 former third-round pick's Giants career ends with 29 catches across 29 games. Nine of those catches came last Week 3. Barden's height could him earn some looks on the open market, but his career is on the downslope.
Tue, Sep 10, 2013 05:59:00 PM

Giants placed WR Ramses Barden on injured reserve, ending his season.

It was originally reported that Barden had been among the Giants' final cuts. Instead, he'll spend the year on the sidelines or receive an injury settlement at some point. Either way, he's not going to play for the Giants in 2013.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 06:27:00 PM

Giants released WR Ramses Barden.

The 85th pick in the 2009 draft, Barden ran like there were cement blocks attached to his feet, which hurt his NFL prospects. He could still generate some free-agent interest from teams interested in red-zone specialists.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 11:22:00 AM

Giants WR Ramses Barden's one-year contract gave the team a "minimum salary benefit" because it's worth just $780,000.

Barden received a base salary of $715,000 with a $65,000 signing bonus. Because of the minimum salary and a signing bonus worth equal to or less than $65K, the Giants can carry Barden at just $620,000 in salary cap cost, per NFL rules. It's a reminder that Barden is not highly regarded around the league. He lasted over two months on the open market before re-signing on the cheap.
Mon, May 27, 2013 05:17:00 PM

Giants re-signed WR Ramses Barden.

Barden found no suitors on the open market, so he comes crawling back to the team he expected to move on from. The 2009 third-round pick went off for nine catches and 138 yards in a Week 3 Thursday night game at Carolina last year, but has still totaled just 29 catches for 394 yards and no touchdowns in the NFL. Barden won't push the exciting Rueben Randle for No. 3 wideout duties.
Thu, May 23, 2013 12:15:00 PM

The Giants will bring in free agent WR Ramses Barden for a physical on Thursday.

If all checks out well, Barden could sign a one-year deal. The 27-year-old former third-round pick said in February that it was "probably best to move on" from the Giants, but he hasn't generated any interest on the open market. He'll probably be back at the minimum salary and as the No. 5 receiver.
Wed, May 22, 2013 08:24:00 PM

USA Today's Mike Garafolo reports the Jets have "had conversations" with free agent WR Ramses Barden.

The 6-foot-6 wideout's market has been nonexistent, but could pick up now that the draft has come and gone. Little more than a big target, the former third-round pick caught just 20 passes in four seasons with the Giants.
Tue, Apr 30, 2013 01:44:00 PM

The New York Daily News reports the Giants are "still an option" for free agent WR Ramses Barden.

Barden, 27, just last month said it would probably be best if the two sides parted ways, but the receiver drew zero interest in the opening week of free agency. If he were to re-sign, Barden wouldn't be any higher than the No. 4 or 5 receiver in New York.
