Nick Barnett's April Fool's Day joke: Pretending Bills re-signed him

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Nick Barnett is currently a man without a job. Although it didn't seem that way for about an hour on Monday morning.

The free-agent linebacker tweeted shortly after 8 a.m. ET on Monday that he'd been re-signed by the Bills.

One problem. Today is April Fool's Day. And Barnett was getting his LOL on.

HA. HA. HA. How. Hilarious. And by "hilarious," I mean "the reason why April Fool's Day is the worst day in the universe."

All things considered, though, this is a pretty good joke. It's also a really AGGRESSIVE joke: if Buddy Nix was on Twitter, you'd have to think that he wouldn't find this very amusing. He'll probably hear about it, though -- at least one member of the Bills fell for the joke, with running back Fred Jackson congratulating Barnett.

Monday should be a super-fun day for rumors and speculation, huh? Make sure to double check your sources everyone.
