Top Cody Barton News

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Could see increased role in 2021

    Barton made the Seahawks' 53-man roster, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Barton played just 114 defensive snaps last season, but with K.J. Wright no longer on the roster, he could handle an increased role this season. Still, the Seahawks often roll out just two linebackers. Bobby Wagner and Jordyn Brooks likely will be every-snap players while Barton rotates in. Furthermore, Darrell Taylor, who is listed as a defensive end, could line up as a linebacker as well. All told, there's significant IDP upside for Barton if either Wagner or Brooks goes down, but he shouldn't be dependable under normal circumstances.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Two sacks in preseason opener

    Barton (quadriceps) recorded nine tackles (seven solo) and two sacks in Saturday's 20-7 preseason loss to the Raiders.

    Barton is competing with Ben Burr-Kirven for the starting weakside linebacker role. Burr-Kirven impressed Saturday with 12 tackles (six solo) as well, but Barton's ability to get to the quarterback twice distinguishes him in the competition for now. Barton logged more than 25 defensive snaps once last season when he finished with 14 tackles against Minnesota in Week 5.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Limited in Thursday's practice

    Barton (quadriceps) was limited in Thursday's practice, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

    Barton had been unable to participate in practice since last Wednesday, and he didn't take part in many activities during his return to the field Thursday. Whether he'll be available for Saturday's preseason opener against the Raiders remains to be seen.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Managing quad injury

    Barton sat out Wednesday's practice with a quadriceps injury, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Barton primarily worked on special teams for the Seahawks last year and is now dealing with an injury early in camp. It's unclear if the injury will affect his status for the preseason opener Aug. 14 at Las Vegas.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Star special-teams performer

    Barton posted 35 tackles and two forced fumbles over 16 games during the 2020 season.

    Barton made two starts at linebacker this year, and he was successful in those games, including a 14-tackle effort in Week 5 against Minnesota. However, he was most noticeable on special teams, where he racked up 17 tackles, leading the team and ranking second in the league. The 2019 third-round pick could take on a larger role in 2021 if K.J. Wright walks in free agency, but he should continue to have an impact in a special-teams role regardless.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Racks up 14 tackles

    Barton recorded 14 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 27-26 win over the Vikings.

    With Jordyn Brooks (knee) out of the lineup, Barton started at weak-side linebacker. Despite playing only 68 percent of the defensive snaps, Barton managed to tie Bobby Wagner for the team high in tackles. The 2019 third-round pick showed some true promise in primetime, but his role could be uncertain if Brooks returns after the team's Week 6 bye.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Makes four starts as rookie

    Barton registered eight tackles, a sack and two pass breakups over two playoff games and recorded 23 tackles and a pass breakup over 16 regular-season games.

    The rookie third-round pick out of Utah jumped ahead of Shaquem Griffin on the depth chart and linebacker and made four starts -- including in both postseason contests -- while Mychal Kendricks battled hamstring and knee injuries. Kendricks likely won't be back for the 2020 season due to a torn ACL on top of pending legal issues, so Barton could retain a full-time starting role heading into training camp. If the Seahawks bring in another outside linebacker or edge rusher, however, Barton's path to relevance in IDP leagues will be more uncertain.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Full go Thursday

    Barton (thigh) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Barton is back on track to play Sunday against the Cardinals after being limited Wednesday with a thigh injury. With Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) trending down for Week 16, Barton could be in line for another start at strong-side linebacker.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Dealing with thigh injury

    Barton was a limited practice participant Wednesday due to a thigh injury, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Barton played 81 defensive snaps and racked up 10 tackles and a half-sack during Sunday's win over the Panthers, but he apparently picked up the thigh injury at some point. The fact the 23-year-old began the week practicing in some capacity puts him on track to play Week 16.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Piles up 10 stops

    Barton made 10 tackles and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Panthers.

    Barton started a second straight game with Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) still on the shelf. The rookie third-round pick performed well with the best tackling performance of his career while getting to the quarterback for the first time. Barton has a good shot to start again in Week 16 against the Cardinals since Bobby Wagner suffered a sprained ankle Sunday and Kendricks isn't a lock to be ready in time, either.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: No lingering injury

    Barton (knee/ankle) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Barton was banged up after making his first career start in place of Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) in Week 14's loss to the Rams. However, the rookie third-round pick had an MRI that cleared him moving forward. If Kendricks misses another game, Barton's in line for another start against the Panthers on Sunday.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Set for MRI

    Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Barton (ankle/knee) is scheduled for an MRI, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Barton drew the start at outside linebacker in place of Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) during Week 14's loss to the Rams, during which the rookie third-round pick played through ankle and knee pain. He notched a career-high four tackles (one solo) and one defended pass, and will now undergo an MRI to diagnose the severity of his injury.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: On track for start

    With fellow linebacker Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams, Barton is in line to start at outside linebacker, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Kendricks continues to deal with the hamstring issue that flared up last week and he failed to suit up in practice this week in any fashion. Barton has been used sparingly this season, however, seeing just 18 defensive snaps and logging six tackles. Even if Barton is thrust into the starting lineup, the Seahawks could elect to play more nickel coverage, leaving Barton out of the lineup in that instance.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Impressing in camp

    Barton has impressed Seattle's coaching staff, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Barton has reportedly stood out since reporting to Seahawks' facilities in May. The rookie third-round pick kept up his momentum during Thursday's preseason game against the Broncos, recording five tackles across 23 defensive snaps. He's doing his part to carve out a rotational role in Seattle's defense.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Takes field Thursday

    Barton (groin) recorded five tackles (two solo) during Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

    Barton appears to have recovered from the first-degree groin sprain that nearly kept him out of Thursday's contest. The rookie third-round pick out of Utah will now resume competing for a rotational role in Seattle's crowded linebacker group.

  • Seahawks' Cody Barton: Dealing with groin injury

    Barton is nursing a first-degree groin strain, and his status for Thursday's preseason game against Denver is up in the air, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Barton reportedly was having an impressive camp before sustaining this injury. When healthy, the rookie figures to slot into a depth role in Seattle's stacked linebacking corps.
