Barnes signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

The Cardinals brought in the veteran Barnes after placing Jared Veldheer (ankle) on injured reserve. Barnes, 35, spent time with the Saints during the preseason but was released prior to Week 1. Rookie Will Holden is likely to start at left tackle in Veldheer's absence, making Barnes a reserve option on the line.

Raiders have 'open competition' between Jon Feliciano, Khalif Barnes
by Shawn Krest |

The Raiders drafted Miami guard Jon Feliciano in the fourth round, and offensive line coach Mike Tice has him slated for right guard. 

Feliciano will need to beat out veteran Khalif Barnes to win the job. 

"Right guard and right tackle is an open competition,"  Tice said, per CSN Bay Area. "We’re pretty set on the left and in the middle, and hopefully those guys can maintain their growth. We pointed out some things they can get better at, but the right side is where the competition is."

The candidates for right tackle are Menelik Watson and Austin Howard

"All you want coming in is an opportunity to compete and get better," Feliciano said. "We have that there at the Raiders, and I know everyone is going to go in there and compete. That’s going to be awesome."

Raiders T Khalif Barnes practices Wednesday, may not start
by R.J. White |

Raiders tackle Khalif Barnes (quad) returned to practice Wednesday, but he may not regain his starting role from Menelik Watson, reports.

Watson has allowed just two pressures in two starts, but coach Tony Sparano was noncommittal earlier in the week when asked about the situation. "We’re going to have some decisions to make," Sparano said Monday. "Menelik did a great job in there again (on Sunday). Khalif has been a real staple for me at a bunch of positions, as you know. I really feel like he’s one of the leaders of that group and he hasn’t been out there, but Menelik has done a really good job. We’ll find ways to keep them all involved and to keep them all going. The good news is that Menelik is a young player right now that is getting better."

Watson ran with the first team during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media.
