Veteran MLB Nick Barnett has found a new home in Buffalo.

The former Packer will sign with the Bills after being cut by Green Bay earlier this week. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the linebacker signed a three-year deal worth $12, inclduing $6 million guaranteed.

Barnett visited the Bills this weekend and tweeted this on Sunday: "God has blessed me once again to be part of a great organization...Great coaches, Great staff, Great players and more importantly great fans."

He then tweeted, "#GOBILLS."

Barnett had been courted by the Lions as well, but canceled his visit to Detroit after the team signed MLB Stephen Tulloch.

The Bills lost ILB Paul Posluszny to the Jaguars via free agency. Buffalo is expected to utilize both the 4-3 and 3-4 and brought in Dave Wannstedt as an assistant head coach and inside linebackers coach.

Barnett played in just four games last season because of injury. When he started all 16 games in 2009, he recorded 105 tackles and four sacks.

The way we see it

Chan Gailey said he was comfortable with Andra Davis and Reggie Torbor on the inside, but the team needed a replacement for Posluszny, especially coming off a season where they had the league's worst rushing defense. Barnett, if he stays healthy, should improve the middle of the Bills' "D."
