Barnett flew to Detroit on Saturday and was scheduled to visit the Lions on Sunday, according to a league source, but the team added ex-Titans LB Stephen Tulloch, and the visit was scrapped as Barnett stayed in Buffalo.
The addition is a needed one after the team lost LB Paul Posluszny to the Jaguars through free agency.
The Packers had drafted Barnett out of Oregon State University in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft with the 29th overall selection. Last season he suffered a season-ending wrist injury in a Week 4 matchup vs. the Lions. He was put on injured reserve on October 7th It was the second time in the last three seasons Barnett ended his season on injured reserve.
