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.
