Barron racked up 10 tackles -- two for loss -- in a 27-6 victory over the 49ers on Sunday. Since shifting to linebacker, Barron has put up 26 tackles and four tackles for loss in two games. If you're in desperate need for an IDP, Barron certainly has shown potential the last two weeks if you're willing to take the chance.
Barron compiled 16 tackles, including two for loss, in a 24-6 victory against Cleveland on Sunday. Barron nearly doubled his tackle total in one fell swoop, as he now has 39 on the season. He's not going to be a tackle machine like this on a regular basis, but St. Louis certainly has to be happy with his improvement.
The Rams are not expected to pick up the 2016 option on safety Mark Barron, reports ProFootballTalk.com. The Rams acquired Barron from the Buccaneers in a trade midseason last year for a fourth- and sixth-round pick in this year's draft. He started all seven games he was with the Rams in 2014. The Rams will evaluate Barron's play in 2015 before deciding if they'll pursue a new contract.
Safety Mark Barron said he "was definitely in shock" when he learned the news he was being traded from the Buccaneers to the Rams Tuesday. However, now that the shock has worn off, Barron is excited for a new start with the Rams, particularly because he feels he is better suited for St. Louis' defensive scheme, per ESPN. "Did I think we could have been doing more, using me more? Yeah, I do," Barron said of his defensive role with the Bucs. "But I wouldn't say it played against my strengths. It was just the way the system was ran. "[Tampa's system] is passive. That's kind of the only thing I didn't like about it. A lot of times I had to sit back and I couldn't really be as aggressive as I wanted to in that system."
The Rams surrendered fourth- and sixth-round draft choices in 2015 to acquire Buccaneers safety Mark Barron, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Barron was a first-round pick in 2012. He ranks second on the Bucs with 49 tackles this season.
