Chargers Sign Linebacker Antwan Barnes

According to the National Football Post, the Chargers have signed linebacker/defensive end Antwan Barnes.

Barnes, a strong pass rusher who will most likely play at the outside linebacker spot for the Chargers, was recently released from Philadelphia Eagles. He was acquired by the Eagles from the Baltimore Ravens this offseason by way of a trade.

During his NFL career, Barnes has posted 4o tackles, five sacks, an interception, three deflected passes, and two forced fumbles, according to NFL.com.

A Florida International product, he tallied 224 career tackles and a school-record 23 career sacks as a Golden Panther.

Throughout the first four weeks of 2010 that he was on the Eagles’ roster, he saw the field in two games and recorded three tackles.
