Kevin Barnes Trade: Redskins Deal Cornerback To Detroit Lions For Conditional Draft Pick

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan confirmed Monday afternoon that the team had traded cornerback Kevin Barnes to the Detroit Lions for a conditional draft pick.

That doesn't seem like a very forthcoming confirmation, but there's a very specific reason for that, as ESPN980's Chris Russell reports.

The Redskins had until 4 p.m. Monday to get their active roster down to 75 players. In his three seasons in Washington, Barnes a former Maryland Terrapin, played in 28 games, making just three starts. He was credited with three interceptions and nine passes defended, as well as 39 tackles and 5 assists.

The Redskins must trim the active roster to 53 players by 9 p.m. on Saturday, September 1.
