The team did not release terms of the deal. Barnidge, a 6-foot-5, 247-pound tight end, figures to contend for playing time with two other young tight ends: Jeff King and Dante Rosario. Barnidge, a first-team All-Big East selection in 2007, played in 47 games with 29 starts for Louisville. He made 108 receptions for 1,491 yards and 17 touchdowns.
