Joplo Bartu hasn’t been very good as of late, but still serves as a viable backup to Justin Durant. Bartu is more than capable of playing special teams at a high level and is a decent backup when good talent is around him. Bartu took a step back in 2014 from what was a surprisingly good rookie season and will be ready if need in 2015.
