Jets to sign 4-time Pro Bowl LB Barr

8 teams that should ‘pull an Anthony Barr’ and reconsider their current deals

Until we reach that Wednesday deadline, players are allowed to back out of any deal they agree to, which is what Barr did with the Jets.

The New York Jets are expected to sign former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, a source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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. Per Ian Rapoport, Barr will receive a five-year deal with $67.5 million with $33 million in guarantees. He notched a multi-sack game with two against the Miami Dolphins last season but also finished with a career-low 55 tackles.

Although Barr's role transformed in Minnesota, his pass-rushing prowess remained fluid over the past five seasons, during which he notched 13.5 sacks and 31 quarterback knockdowns.

After signing receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy early in the day, the Jets made another huge splash by luring Barr away from the Minnesota Vikings.

Barr has made four straight Pro Bowl appearances after missing out on the honor during his rookie campaign.

But Barr staying in Minnesota isn't the end of the world for the Jets.

Pro Football Focus ranked Barr as their third highest rated free agent linebacker after Jordan Hicks and C.J. Mosley.
