CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Browns signed defensive back Kevin Barnes to a one-year contract on Monday, the club announced.
Barnes does not have a ton of starting experience. He was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the 2009 NFL draft but has only started three games in his career.
He has registered 44 career tackles, three interceptions and nine passes defensed. In 2011, Barnes appeared in 15 games with the Redskins and totaled career highs in tackles (26) and interceptions (2).
Barnes was traded to Detroit on August 27, 2012 and appeared in two games with the Lions before being waived on September 18.
Free agent linebacker Victor Butler visited with the team on Sunday night and part of Monday, but left town without signing a contract. Butler is a free agent out of Dallas.
