Barrington (undisclosed) was released by the Bills with an injury settlement Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official website reports. Barrington, who signed with the Bills just prior to camp, was never a strong candidate to land on the final roster. He was ultimately waived/injured by the team, and subsequently reverted to their injured reserve. He now avoids spending the entire 2017 season on the IR, and will be free to look for a new opportunity once he regains his health.
Barrington signed with the Bills on Tuesday, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports. Barrington spent last season with the Saints, appearing in five games and recording two combined tackles in limited action. The 2014 seventh-round pick will look to secure a spot on the final roster out of training camp.
Barrington signed a contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. A seventh-round pick by the Packers in the 2013 NFL Draft, Barrington spent his first three seasons in Green Bay, before signing with the Chiefs at the start of the 2016 campaign. However, he only took the field for two games with the Chiefs before being waived, as the team had more pressing needs and Barrington was unable to impress in limited action. That said, the Saints needed some additional help at middle linebacker with James Laurinaitis (quad) heading to IR, so look for Barrington to offer some much needed depth.
Barrington, who had been dealing with a hamstring injury, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Barrington had originally gone down in Week 1 and has not played in either of the last two weeks. Now, with a full practice early in the week, it looks like Barrington should be a full-go for Week 4.
Barrington (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Barrington suffered a hamstring injury Week 1 and has been sidelined since. It's unclear at this point in time when he's expected to return.
