Barrett signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Monday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.

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.

Barrett signed with Seattle on Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports. Barrett was waived recently by New Orleans but found a new home after just nine days. He'll provide depth at quarterback for the Seahawks in the wake of Geno Smith's knee injury.

Barrett signed a contract with the Saints' practice squad Saturday, Brett Martel of the Associated Press reports. This marks the 11th time Barrett has been signed to the Saints' practice squad over the course of the 2018 season.
