Vikings' Anthony Barr: Returning to Vikes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings and Barr agreed to terms of a five-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Barr was among the Jets' free-agent splashes on the first day of the NFL's legal tampering period, but perhaps the Vikings got wind of the terms of his contract and decided something in that range could fit under the salary cap. Considering the reported terms -- $67.5 million, with $33 million in guarantees and the potential to max out at $77.5 million with incentives -- it's unclear how the Vikings plan to free up enough cash with just $9.3 million in available cap space, per overthecap.com. In any case, Barr will keep his role as an off-ball linebacker in the Vikings defense, which has equated to 4.7 tackles per game in five campaigns to date.

Vikings' Anthony Barr: Staying put after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barr, who was reportedly set to sign with the Jets, has instead agreed to remain with the Vikings, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

This serves as a reminder that until free agency actually opens up Wednesday afternoon, nothing is official. Barr is thus slated to reprise his outside linebacker role with the Vikings. The 26-year-old logged 55 tackles and three sacks in 13 games last season, his fifth with Minnesota.

Vikings' Anthony Barr: Signing with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets are in line to sign Barr to a contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

During his five-year run with the Vikings, Barr was an off-ball linebacker, posting modest tackle (4.7 per game) and scant sack (13.5 in 71 contests) numbers. In the move to New York, he seemingly will be put into a position to rush the passer more in the scheme of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Whether or not that translates to more relevance as an IDP remains to be seen, but Barr is among the first building blocks of a revamped linebacker corps.

Vikings' Anthony Barr: Avoids franchise tag, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barr did not receive a franchise tag from the Vikings prior to Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Barr was mentioned as a candidate for the tag earlier this offseason, but there hasn't been any suggestion that it's something the Vikings seriously considered. Given the team's tight cap situation, Barr likely will find his best offers outside of Minnesota. He could draw interest as a 3-4 outside linebacker, which would allow for more pass-rushing opportunities.

Vikings' Anthony Barr: Two-sack performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barr recorded a team-high seven tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

Barr followed up with his first sack of the season in Week 14 with two more against the Dolphins, as the Vikings sacked Ryan Tannehill a whopping nine times. Barr will look to continue his sack streak against the Lions on Sunday.
