Bills just picked up Ramses Barden. Not a bad pickup, HUGE red zone target, former third rounder. Why not.

Nice pick up but I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't make the team.

 

The Giants had high hopes for him. Anyone know what his injury was?

The Bills have signed former Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden to a reserve/future contract, the club said Thursday.

 

 

Barden (6-6, 224) caught 29 passes for 394 yards in four seasons for the Giants (2009-2012). He was a third-round pick of the Giants in 2009. The Giants released the 28-year-old Barden with an injury settlement in September.

 

 

Barden is one of three wide receivers signed by Buffalo to reserve/future contracts this offseason, with Brandon Kaufman and Chris Summers the others.

 

 

 

The Bills also announced the signing of free safety Jajuan Harley (ex-Seahawks), linebacker Willie Jefferson (ex-Texans), wide receiver Chris Summers (ex-Vikings, Bears) and linebacker Nathan Williams (ex-Vikings, Dolphins) to reserve/future deals Thursday.

Pre-draft[edit]

 

At the NFL Combine, Barden measured in at 6'6.5 tall and 225 pounds. He timed at 4.61 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 17 reps on the bench press, a 33.5" vertical jump, and a 9' 10" broad jump.[3] Barden was also the tallest receiver in the draft class.[2]

New York Giants[edit]

 

In the 2009 NFL Draft, the Giants moved up six spots in the third round of the draft to select Barden.[2] The move up for Barden cost the Giants their own third-round pick (91st overall) and one of their two fifth-rounders (164th), which they sent to their division rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.[2] He saw little playing time in his rookie season, participating in 3 games and recording 1 catch for 16 yards. In his second season he had 5 catches for 64 yards in 3 games before being placed on injured reserve on November 16, 2010 after breaking his ankle and suffering ligament damage.[4][5] Place on the Active/Physically-Unable-To-Perform List on on July 29, 2011. He returned to action on November 6, 2011, catching 2 passes for 24 yards in a win against the New England Patriots 24-20. On a September 20, 2012 vs. the Carolina Panthers, with Hakeem Nicks out with a foot injury, Barden had his breakout performance with a 9 catches for 138 yards.

 

 

On August 31, 2013 The Giants released Ramses Barden.

Love the size but any 5th or 6th wr is going to have to make the team with their special teams play. If he can contribute there he could have a role on this team.
