RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Barnidge is a career backup tight end, and even without Pro Bowler Jordan Cameron returning for the 2015 season, the 30-year-old still projects to have a similar role. Cameron missed seven total games in 2014 due to various ailments, but Barnidge still only managed 13 receptions on 25 targets all year (both career-bests), while failing to find the end zone. He did miss three games of his own while tending to a ribs injury, however. Barnidge was targeted just once in the red zone a season ago, and there’s little reason to expect a drastic turnaround in the upcoming year.

2014

Barnidge will compete for targets at the tight end position in 2014, but currently finds himself behind Jordan Cameron and Jim Dray on the depth chart. The 28-year-old saw 18 targets with the Browns in 2013, and will likely see a similar role this year.

2013

Barnidge was signed to add depth to the tight end group behind Jordan Cameron and Kellen Davis.

2012

Expected to backup Greg Olsen at tight end, although Barnidge is more of a blocker than a pass catcher.

2011

Would have been used mostly for blocking help along the offensive line, thanks to Greg Olsen and Jeremy Shockey ahead of him, but he will miss a majority (if not all) the season with a fractured ankle.

2010

Barnidge had 12 receptions for 242 yards last season and sits behind Dante Rosario and Jeff King in the depth chart.

2009

Barnidge appeared in 15 games, but did not record a catch for the Panthers during his rookie season. He'll remain the No. 3 option at tight end behind starter Jeff King and No. 2 man Dante Rosario for now.

2008

Barnidge is in the mix to compete with 2007 draft pick Dante Rosario for the Panthers' backup tight end spot behind Jeff King. Barring an injury, his opportunities as a pass-catcher will be very limited.
