Barnes Traded to Eagles for Draft Pick

National Football Post reports:

 The Baltimore Ravens have traded outside linebacker Antwan Barnes to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2011 draft pick.Barnes is a promising pass rusher.

Drafted in the fourth round out of Florida International by Baltimore in 2007, the 6-foot-1, 251-pound Barnes has 20 career tackles, five sacks, an interception, a pass deflection, a forced fumble and 24 career special teams tackles. 

Last season, Barnes recorded a career-high three sacks and an interception.

Looks like Ozzie Newsome is attempting to recoup the pick they lost in acquiring Josh Wilson last week. Barnes has shown some promise as a pass rusher but it would have been hard to predict how much time he would have seen the field with a such a talented group of backers.

Stay tuned! More news on roster cuts are on the way.
