Nick Barnett visits Redskins

Veteran free agent linebacker Nick Barnett visited the Washington Redskins today

He wasn't immediately signed to a contract, but that could still happen.

The Redskins have been seeking depth since Keenan Robinson tore his pectoral muscle.

Joe Mays visited Saturday before signing with the Houston Texans.

Barnett registered 112 tackles and two sacks last season for the Buffalo Bills. He was released rather than pay him a $3.5 million base salary.

Barnett spent his first eight seasons with Green Bay. He was entering the final year of his contract in Buffalo before being cut.
