Description: Barton has signed a free-agent deal with the Browns. He played under new Cleveland coach Eric Mangini with the Jets.
Insight: Barton can be a decently productive tackle source. If he wins the inside job next to D'Qwell Jackson, though, Jackson's active style would figure to cut into his numbers. Barton is merely a late-round consideration in relatively deep IDP leagues. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Barton led the Jets defense with 17 total tackles, 14 solo, and forced a fumble in the Jets' overtime win over the Patriots.
Insight: Barton has stepped it up for the Jets defensively and has recorded 27 tackles over his last two games, 22 of which are solo. Barton is certainly worthy of a pickup if you are in need of a linebacker. (SportsBuff.com)
