Nick Barnett was one of the veteran defenders released by the Bills Monday. Once the NFL league transaction page listed the move we found out why.
Barnett was listed on the league’s transactions as waived – failed physical.

NFL clubs can differ in their opinions on physical exams. One club might pass a player on a physical, while another might fail. Some teams have stricter standards than others, or it could simply be a difference of opinion from one team physician to another. In this case Barnett’s physical state was obviously not up to Buffalo’s standard.
