Redskins sign 3rd-round pick Barnes, cut 2
Barnes is a cornerback who played at Maryland and was the 80th overall pick in April.
Barnes started all 20 games he played over the last two seasons at Maryland.
He posted the highest score (41) on the Wonderlic logic-thinking test given to prospects at this year's NFL Combine and is also well-known for a big hit that became an Internet sensation. Barnes leveled California's Jahvid Best last season, leaving Best on the ground several minutes before the running back vomited.
