Redskins add Kyle O’Donnell, Dante Barnes to roster

By Rick Maese

The Redskins took the practice field on Friday with at least 61 players under contract, but we suspected there might be a few more. Here’s one more name to add to the list: The team has brought in former Liberty linebacker Kyle O’Donnell, according to the York Daily Record.

O’Donnell is an undrafted free agent who was listed at 6 feet 2 and 237 pounds. He led Liberty in tackles as a senior in 2010 with 75 — 12 for loss — plus three sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception.

“We are extremely proud of him. He is a young man that deserves it,” his high school coach told the York Daily Record. “He has worked hard for it. It’s [only] surprising because few people get it. Just getting that chance is awesome.”

The Redskins also added defensive back Dante Barnes from Norfolk State, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Barnes is listed at 6-2 and 190 pounds. Fellow undrafted rookie Kevin Gidrey was a high school teammate of Barnes’s in Virginia Beach and first mentioned his arrival Thursday night on Twitter.
