Barrett signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports. Barrett joined Pittsburgh's practice squad Christmas Eve and is now set to spend the offseason with the team. The 24-year-old spent much of the last two seasons moving on and off the Saints' practice squad, and he has yet to make his NFL debut.
Barrett was released off the Saints' practice squad Tuesday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Barrett joined the Saints' practice squad in September with Drew Brees (thumb) heading for surgery, but he was let go Tuesday with the veteran QB closing in on his return. Barrett has yet to see game action since going undrafted out of Ohio State in 2018 and spent most of last season being move on and off New Orleans' practice squad.
Seattle waived Barrett on Saturday, per the NFL transactions page. Barrett originally signed with the Seahawks shortly after being waived by the Saints at the start of training camp. The 24-year-old has yet to see any regular-season action since going undrafted out of Ohio State in 2018. Barrett will now have to try to find an opportunity elsewhere.
New Orleans cut Barrett from their practice squad Wednesday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports. Barrett was the odd man out in New Orleans, with both Taysom Hill and Teddy Bridgewater serving as backup quarterbacks. The Ohio State product will look to find a depth role elsewhere around the league.
Barrett has signed on to the Saints' practice squad, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. The Saints chose to go with Taysom Hill as their backup instead of Barrett, and the addition of Teddy Bridgewater last week left little room for the Ohio State product on the active roster. However, he'll remain in New Orleans and could find his way onto the active roster at some point this season.
