NFL Trade Rumors:
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.

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan insists he's drastically behind the times, claiming he has never "been on Twitter" and adding, "I don’t even have e-mail."
Carriker will likely be placed on IR for the 2nd straight year The horrible news came out a few days ago that Washington Redskins left defensive end Adam Carriker will miss 4 or 5 months with a third surgery within 10 months on his bothersome right quadriceps that he tore week two last year versus the St Louis Rams. I have to think that this will mean Carriker will be put on injured...
With NFL training camp under way, it’s time to look at the positives of the upcoming Buffalo Bills season. The negatives have been much easier to cover for the last decade or so, and I don’t plan to dwell on those. You know them well enough. This team lacks the top end talent found all over the AFC, and a wise better wouldn’t wager on the team getting more than five or six...
Shawne Merriman wants back in the NFL.
The former Bills linebacker, who announced his retirement in March, took to Twitter on Sunday night, begging the Falcons to bring him aboard.
Merriman has the specifics drawn up, too.
Sounds good on paper. But if doesn't work?
This is DeAngelo Hall the Redskins' No. 1 cornerback standing on the sidelines Tuesday watching the walkthrough in a walking boot.
Hall injured his right ankle Monday but Redskins officials didn't seem overly concerned.

Since being hired as Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator, Mike Pettine has made it clear that his defense will attack. Earlier this offseason, Pettine said “Read and react is not in our vocabulary.” This is most evident in two areas: the 46 defense that was developed by his old boss’s father, Buddy Ryan, and the fire zone blitz. Today, we’ll look at a fire zone blitz run...

Spiller's breakout performance last season, coupled with a new offensive system, has left fellow running back Fred Jackson's role in the Buffalo Bills' offense a bit of a mystery for the upcoming year.Heck, even his coach isn't quite sure.Both backs have stayed healthy heading into training camp, which has been an issue in the past when the coaching...
BY NICK ST. DENISChemistry is easy to create when there isn't another team on the field to impede. It's also easy to create when a trait from one player matches that of another.Buffalo Bills second-year wide receiver T.J. Graham feels the latter is the reason he and rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel have hit it off so far -- at least in his eyes.“Well, he throws the ball far...

So everything I read in the last 24 hours has to do with Mario Williams’ foot.
I understand he left campus, got a second opinion and everything appears to be fine. I am glad the Bills and Mario are being cautious and let’s face it, the team has too much invested for them not to be. They don’t play the games on Wednesday and it is...
