  Falcons | Kenyon Barner agrees to terms with ATL    Thu Mar 14, 05:35 PM

Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Panthers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, March 14. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: With Tevin Coleman (49ers) moving on in free agency, the Falcons needed to add some depth to the position. We should see Devonta Freeman as the top back with Ito Smith as his primary backup. Barner will work on special teams and compete with Brian Hill and Jeremy Langford for a spot on the depth chart behind Freeman and Smith.

  Panthers | Kenjon Barner placed on IR    Fri Dec 28, 07:37 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Kenjon Barner (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Dec. 28. The team also signed practice squad OG Dorian Johnson to the 53-man roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Panthers are looking at a backfield featuring Cameron Artis-Payne and Travaris Cadet in Week 17. Barner was picked up off waivers from the Patriots back in mid-November. He'll be hard pressed to find steady work next year coming off this knee injury. Barner is an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

The Carolina Panthers claimed RB Kenjon Barner off waivers from the New England Patriots Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Footballguys view: Barner is back with the Panthers as they continue to look for running back help. They released C.J. Anderson earlier in the week and then added Travaris Cadet. A sixth-round pick of the Panthers back in 2013, Barner will compete with Cadet for third on the depth chart behind Christian McCaffrey and Cameron Artis-Payne.

The team also released RB Kenjon Barner.

Footballguys view: Barner has bounced around the league as a pass-catching back and could get a call during the season if injuries deplete a backfield. Serigne has some developmental tight end potential and could end up on a practice squad.

  Panthers | Kenjon Barner signs with Panthers    Fri May 11, 10:23 AM

Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Eagles) signed an undisclosed deal with the Carolina Panthers Friday, May 11.

Footballguys view: Barner began his career with the Panthers as a sixth-round pick (2013) out of Oregon. The Panthers need some depth at the position, even after adding C.J. Anderson in free agency, because they put Fozzy Whittaker on Injured Reserve. Barner can help give them veteran depth at the running back position and can also contribute on special teams.

  Bills | Kenjon Barner visiting Bills    Tue May 8, 11:30 AM

Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Eagles) is visiting the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, May 8, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Barner is a speedy change-of-pace back who could give the Bills some depth at the position. If added, Barner would compete for a spot on the depth chart behind starter LeSean McCoy with Chris Ivory likely serving as the second-string back.

  Eagles | Philly signs Kenjon Barner    Tue Sep 26, 07:18 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Chargers) was signed to a one-year contract by the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, Sept. 26. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Barner is back with the Eagles (spent 2014-2016 in Philadelphia) after spending the summer with the Chargers. He is familiar with the scheme and gives the team more depth after losing Darren Sproles for the year. Barner is nothing more than a no4 RB behind LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement.

  Eagles | Kenjon Barner works out for Eagles    Tue Sep 26, 06:21 PM

Free-agent RB Kenjon Barner (Chargers) worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick for the Panthers in the 2013 NFL draft, Barner spent three seasons with the Eagles (2014-2016) before getting signed by the Chargers in 2017. He failed to make the final roster for the Chargers and now could wind up back with the Eagles as they are looking for depth at the RB position. Both Daren Sproles and DJ Pumphrey are done for the year, and the Eagles could use a no4 RB behind LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement.

  Chargers | Two Chargers RBs could be third down back    Wed May 3, 02:49 PM

Los Angeles Chargers RBs Branden Oliver and Kenjon Barner appear to be the leading candidates for the third down back role this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: Either one could work as a change-of-pace back behind Melvin Gordon. Fantasy owners are looking at Gordon as RB6 (1.10) in 12-team PPR leagues right now. Oliver and/or Barner are going to replace Danny Woodhead (Ravens) this year, and there's a bit of fantasy value there...especially in PPR leagues. We'll watch this battle unfold in training camp.

Footballguys view: Neither back should have much fantasy relevance in Week 15. Ryan Mathews will get a bulk of the work, and we look at him as a RB3 against the Ravens.
