Barnes agreed to a one-year contract. Terms of the deal weren't available. Barnes had been in talks with the Bucs late last week but opted to go with the Raiders, who were recruiting him hard to be a possible starter along the offensive line.
I can't beleive that a 26 year old tackle with 57 starts under his belt was scooped up on a just a 1 year deal, and Bears didn't show any... I mean ANY interest him him. It just completely pisses me off. Instead, they're gonna end up signing John St. Clair, a 32 year old utility lineman, for 3-4 years. What a waste.
