Nicholas Alexander Barnett (born May 27, 1981 in Fontana, California) is an American Football linebacker for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League. A graduate of Fontana A.B. Miller High School in Fontana, California, the Green Bay Packers drafted him out of Oregon State University in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft with the 29th overall selection.

Barnett and his defensive teammates had not had a steady defensive coordinator for more than four years. In 2006 the Packers hired Bob Sanders as their fourth defensive coordinator in as many years. Despite instability in the coaching staff, Barnett has consistently posted impressive statistics. Barnett had anchored the young linebacking corps since his rookie year in 2003, and had been the starting middle/inside linebacker of the Green Bay Packers since his NFL career started. On April 10, 2007, Barnett signed a six year contract extension worth $34.85 million, after extended negotiations with Packers management.

On July 31, 2011, Barnett signed with the Buffalo Bills.
