PRO: After impressing coaches through the 2010 preseason by finishing fourth on the team with 15 tackles while also tying for second with three special teams tackles, Barry Church was one-of-four undrafted free agents to make the roster coming out of training camp. Through his rookie season, Church continued to display his playmaking ability as a stalwart on special teams units and as a reserve in the defensive backfield. Church finished the year fourth on the squad with 16 special teams tackles while also contributing 14 tackles on defense. Church continued his development through the 2011 offseason and added 10 special teams tackles while seeing more time in the defensive rotation. He tallied 24 tackles, with two for losses as a reserve. He will again enter camp looking to solidify a spot on the club’s 2012 roster.
