The Redskins traded Kevin Barnes to the Detroit Lions on Monday, the veteran cornerback confirmed in a phone conversation.
A review of the best and worst performances by the Washington Redskins' defense and some observations after re-watching the TV broadcast of their 20-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
It was in September 2008 when Kevin Barnes — then a cornerback at Maryland — hit Jahvid Best so hard the Cal running back lost his lunch and had to leave the game. Thanks to YouTube and his career with the Washington Redskins, Barnes still hears about it whenever he interacts with fans.
My observations, analysis and conclusions about the Redskins' defense after rewatching the TV broadcast of Washington's 16-7 preseason victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Washington Redskins showed they can win without Albert Haynesworth and Donovan McNabb.
Kevin Barnes intercepted David Garrard's second pass in overtime, setting up Graham Gano's 31-yard field goal that gave the Washington Redskins a 20-17 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday and snapped a four-game losing streak.
"I'm excited to get another shot to succeed for an up-and-coming young team," Barnes said. "I'm just happy they wanted me."
Asked what the Redskins told him about their motives in parting with him, Barnes said: "Basically, I guess it was more of a special teams move."
