Linebacker Nick Barnett had a workout with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday.
The Redskins have been working out veterans since Keenan Robinson was injured last week, and lost out on Joe Mays, who signed with Houston on Monday.
"Sounded like it was a pretty good workout," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said of Barnett, who played for Buffalo the past two years and was released in February. "What you do is look at a lot of film and you do your homework on him. Find out what he's done and all the places where he's been and see if he fits into your program.
"We have a couple coaches that know him well and that's one of the reasons why we brought him in."
