Mark Barron: Let go by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers have terminated Barron's contract.

The 30-year-old logged 82 tackles and three sacks in 15 games in his lone season with the Steelers. Also let go by the team at the same time Monday were fellow linebacker Anthony Chickillo and wide receiver Johnny Holton.

Steelers' Mark Barron: One tackle in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron had one tackle (solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.

Barron has one year remaining on his contract and finished the 2019 season with 82 tackles including three sacks in 15 games. He also had one interception and one fumble recovery. His IDP value is limited heading into 2020.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Comes up big in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron totaled seven tackles (six solo) including a sack in Pittsburgh's 23-17 win over Arizona on Sunday.

The seven tackles led the defense and were the most Barron has had in a game since Week 10. The sack was just his third this season but his second in the past three games. A win in Week 15 would allow Pittsburgh to swap places with Buffalo and move up to the fifth seed in the AFC playoff picture.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Rare sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron totaled six tackles (two solo) including a sack in Pittsburgh's 16-10 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.

Although Pittsburgh has 38 sacks in 11 games, Barron's sack was only his second this season and just the 11th in his nine-year career. While his defensive contributions are invaluable to the Steelers, Barron doesn't post enough stats to garner IDP consideration.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron had a team-high 10 tackles (all solo) in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams.

The Rams relied heavily on their tight ends in the passing game with Gerald Everett, Tyler Higbee and Johnny Mundy receiving nearly as many targets (17) as wide receivers Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds (20). This allowed Barron to record his second most tackles in a game this season to give him 48 on the season. However, with only one sack in eight games the ceiling is low for Barron in IDP formats.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Ready for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) is officially active for Monday's game against the Dolphins, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Barron practiced in a full capacity during Saturday's session, so this news doesn't come as a huge surprise. After missing last week's game due to the injury, the veteran will likely return to his normal starting role at one of the inside linebacker positions for the clash.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Questionable for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Dolphins.

Barron was able to practice without limitations Saturday, but the Steelers are still hesitant to give him the all-clear. The veteran linebacker is in danger of missing his second straight game. He has 29 tackles (19 solo and a pass breakup through five games, and his status is likely to be a game-time decision, coming down to 90 minutes before Monday's 8:15 pm ET kickoff.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Held back in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) was limited during Friday's practice, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Barron's in danger of missing his second straight game, which would push Vince Williams into a starting role yet again. It is positive news, however, that T.J. Watt (abdominal) was able to go full speed through Thursday's drills. Barron will look to elevate to a full participant Saturday, or else he'll likely carry a questionable tag into Monday's game against the Dolphins.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Chris Adamski of TribLive.com reports.

Barron looks to have shed his hamstring issue during Pittsburgh's bye week. Barring any setbacks, the veteran linebacker will draw his usual start against the Dolphins on Monday.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Mike Tomlin said earlier in the week that Barron was questionable for Week 6, but he was ruled out after not being able to take the practice field. Vince Williams and Devin Bush should see most of the work at inside linebacker for Pittsburgh.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Status uncertain for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike Tomlin said Barron (hamstring) can be considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chargers, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Barron underwent an MRI on Monday, and it appears his injury may not be serious enough to keep him out Week 6. The Steelers will likely keep a close eye on their starting inside linebacker during this week's practices, but Tyler Matakevich is waiting in the wings for a usage increase if Barron can't go.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Undergoes MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) had an MRI on Monday to determine a timeline for his return, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Barron left Sunday's overtime loss to the Ravens in the first half, and his hamstring was still sore Monday morning. The results of his MRI will reveal whether Barron has a chance to play Sunday versus the Chargers. Expect his practice status to be limited to some degree either way.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Suffers injury at end of half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Ravens, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Barron suffered this injury near the end of the first half, so he'll be evaluated during halftime before the team decides if he can play going forward. If Barron can't go, expect Tyler Matakevich to see an increase in his workload.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Leads defense in tackles Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron recorded 11 tackles (eight solo), an interception and a pass defensed in Monday's win over the Bengals.

Barron led the Steelers in tackles during a dominating defensive performance in which they only allowed three points. He also secured his first interception since 2017, which came in Pittsburgh's end zone during the fourth quarter. He'll now shift his focus to another divisional opponent in the Ravens for a second consecutive AFC North matchup.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Posts nice stat line in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron made six tackles (two solo) and had a fumble recovery in Sunday's 28-26 loss to the Seahawks.

The 29-year-old was all over the field Sunday, playing in all 79 of the team's defensive snaps. Barron continues to put himself in situations to make tackles and has recorded 13 through the first two games of the season. He'll get a chance to have another impact on the game in Week 3 against the 49ers, which ran wild against Cincinnati on Sunday.

Steelers' Mark Barron: Joining forces with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Steelers and Barron reached an agreement on a two-year, $12 million contract Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

In order to shave $6.33 million from their cap situation, the Rams released Barron in early March with the hope that he would return on a more team-friendly deal. Clearly, that won't come to pass. Barron will join his third organization since entering the NFL as a first-rounder of the Buccaneers in 2012. With 96.6 tackles per 16 games played in his career, he could be a valuable IDP if he can avoid the injury bug this coming season.

Mark Barron: Released by Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams released Barron on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Barron made it through three seasons of a five-year, $45 million contract, getting the start in each of his 42 appearances during that stretch. He never lived up to his sizable contract, and the Rams can afford to move on after Cory Littleton emerged as a solid starter at inside linebacker. The 29-year-old converted safety may have to battle for playing time at his next stop.

Rams' Mark Barron: Plays 48 snaps in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron played 48 defensive snaps and recorded nine tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 33-31 win over Seattle.

Barron missed the first four games of the season with an ankle injury, but he certainly proved his health with a strong showing in his 2018 debut. Barring a re-aggravation of his ankle or another injury, the Alabama product is positioned to return to serving as an above-average IDP option.

Rams' Mark Barron: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (ankle) is expected to start Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This would be Barron's first game of the season. Barron is a versatile linebacker, as he made 86 tackles, one sack, four pass breakups and three interceptions in 14 games for the Rams last season. If he suffers a setback before kickoff, expect Ramik Wilson and Bryce Hager to continue manning the inside linebacker role.

Rams' Mark Barron: Officially questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barron (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The expectation was that Barron was going to play this week after practicing in limited fashion, and head coach Sean McVay confirmed that sentiment Friday afternoon. Look for Barron's status to be confirmed some time Sunday.
