Bills cut FB Barnes, add FB McIntyre

The Buffalo Bills have swapped fullbacks.

Two NFL sources informed me the Bills have signed fullback Corey McIntyre and released Darian Barnes, who had been gaining local popularity for his big hits and entertaining interviews as a recurring guest on the Jim Rome Show.

Barnes injured his right foot in Week 3. He practiced last week but was inactive for Sunday's victory over the St. Louis Rams.

Barnes had zero carries and two receptions for 34 yards. He is a seven-year journeyman who previously played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.

McIntyre has played one season each with the Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons, where he was special teams captain last year. The Falcons released him at the end of training camp.

The West Virginia grad is a pure blocking fullback. In 33 NFL games, including one start, McIntyre has no rushing attempts and one catch.

In comes Corey McIntyre, the guy we investigated this off-season.  This is VERY odd, at least in terms of timing, to me. 

Does anybody know how good of a blocker "Mack truck" is?

Looks like the staff really wants to see the run game upgraded.  Like we all thought, the Whittle in the backfield experiment appears over.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
