Barrett signed with the 49ers on Sunday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The 49ers claimed James Lockhart off waivers from the Steelers on Sunday, but Lockhart opted to retire rather than play in 2020. As a result, the team re-signed Barrett to add depth at defensive end since Nick Bosa (leg), Arik Armstead (back) and Dee Ford (calf) are dealing with injuries.
Barrett was waived by the 49ers on Thursday. Barrett originally signed on with the 49ers in February but this is already his second time being waived by the team since he joined. The defensive lineman has spent time with the Raiders and Lions but has struggled to find a long-term home in the league.
Barrett inked a contract with the 49ers on Monday. The 25-year-old didn't suit up in the league during the 2019 season, as he was most recently released with an injury settlement by the Raiders out of training camp. Barrett has appeared in two games in his career, both with Detroit, accumulating one assisted tackle in that span.
Barrett (undisclosed) had a workout with the Bills on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Barrett was waived/injured by the Raiders at the September roster deadline, reverted to injured reserve and returned to free agency after reaching an injury settlement. The 25-year-old appears to have recovered from the injury as he continues to search for a new team.
The Raiders released Barrett (undisclosed) after reaching an injury settlement, Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. It's not clear what was bothering Barrett, but he will now be a free agent. The 25-year-old will likely look for a practice-squad role elsewhere.
