Barnes is probably not a three down player for the Jets. He will probably only see time on passing downs. This team is lacking a legitimate threat off the edge, though. There is plenty of talent on the inside creating double teams and leaving favorable matchups one on a single on the outside. Despite all the fan fare that included Calvin Pace's 10 sack season this past year, that seems unlikely to repeat itself for a lot of reasons including age and the way he's deployed. An athletic guy like Barnes may make an impact whilst a part-timer. He has to get healthy first.
Tom Sells of somewhere writes "Unlike Coples and Pace, this can be a guy offenses legtitimatley need to concern yourself with coming off the edge. A man who will enable you to get ten sacks, but may also cause a myriad of havoc in the backfield even when he doesn't get to the QB"
