First, it was not a 100% certainty that he was going to be cut.
Second, kinda irks me that they never really used him for what he is best at. Running in space. Stewy's first run was outside. Fozzy got 2 runs outside. Barner? Not so many. Also, how many passes did they try to get him? The guy never got a fair shot.
Third, If Stewy stays healthy, he wasn't going to get much action anyways.
All in all, getting something for a player that didn't really figure into our plans. Nice job Gman.
I agree with this and was calling for screens to Barner his whole time here, but Shula is an idiot.
That said, it's just clear to me Barner's potential is limited by the way he gets ragdolled and leveled every time he's tackled.
