Ian Rapoport reports that free agent LB Nick Barnett is set to visit the Washington Redskins.
Rapoport adds that Barnett has spent the past few months getting healthy.
Barnett, 32, has not found any interest on the open market, so it seems unlikely that the Redskins would guarantee him a roster spot if he was in fact signed to a contract.
Last year, Pro Football Focus graded Barnett as the No. 9 best 4-3 outside linebacker. According to their ratings, Barnett was very solid against the run, but clearly struggled to provide any pass rush.
Washington currently has London Fletcher as their starting inside linebacker, but there are some obvious concerns with him being that he’s 38-years-old and has plenty of mileage. Behind him, the Redskins have Perry Riley and Brian Kehl.
We have Barnett listed as the No. 12 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
