Antwan Barnes is a free agent outside linebacker coming from the San Diego Chargers. He will be visiting the New York Jets tomorrow, per Jake Steinberg.

Over the past three years in San Diego, Barnes has notched 18.5 sacks in limited time. Barnes had this to say:

If the Jets can sign Barnes and Butler, I would be a pretty happy man. But first, let's start with Barnes.
