I thought Barron transitioned to LB? Or was that just a temporary deal?

He played DB at Alabama. Based on the above, is that not the requirement?

"14 played in the secondary for the Crimson Tide."

Yes, Barron is now a LB, but was a DB at Bama and most of NFL career.
He was actually responsible for a lot of this article..
Not sure why he was not listed??? other than is a LB now?

They begun playing him at LB near the 2015 mid season. So just over half his NFL career has been at LB.
