Anthony Barr to stay with Minnesota after turning down New York Jets

Vikings burn Jets again Anthony Barr situation brings back memories of Antoine Winfield

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports Barr told NY he "had to sleep on it" after planning to sign and then the Vikings presented a better offer on Tuesday, which Barr then agreed to.

- One day after telling the New York Jets he would sign with them, Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr has made a decision to stay in Minnesota, according to reports.

The deal is reportedly worth $39 million and includes $21.5 million in guarantees. The Jets entered free agency with more than $82 million available under the salary cap. Linebacker Anthony Barr had been reported to be heading to NY when free agency opens on Wednesday.

Barr, who turns 27 next week, will get a chance to finish what he started with the Vikings after five years where he mixed stretches of dominance with periods of relative anonymity, posting 13 ½ sacks, 22 pass defenses, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and one interception (off Peyton Manning in 2015).

The palace statement said: " The Duchess of Sussex will today become Vice-President of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust ". So boy or girl or whatever it is, we hope that that's the case, with our little bump ".

Minnesota drafted Barr with the No. 9 pick in 2014 out of UCLA.

Barr's made it known that he would like to be more of a pass-rusher, and it looks like the Jets' deficiencies on the edge will give him every conceivable chance to rush the passer on a regular basis. Minnesota has already moved on from safety Andrew Sendejo and then lost defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson to free agency, with the Cleveland Browns signed him to a three-year, $36 million deal.

The Ravens wanted to re-sign Mosley, but the Jets outbid them.
