Anthony Barr pulls about-face on Jets, will return to Vikings

Minnesota Vikings' Sheldon Richardson is leaving town while Anthony Barr has changed his mind and is staying with the Vikings, according to reports.

Details of the contract agreed upon between the Vikings and Barr were shared on Twitter by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Having entered free agency with the second-most available cap space in the National Football League, the Jets are expected to make multiple other offseason additions after bringing in the 26-year-old pass-rusher.

Shortly thereafter, the Lions agreed to terms on a five-year deal worth about $17 million to $18 million a year with former Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers.

On Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter said the Jets are in line to sign Barr to a contract.

No sweat! Defensive lineman sets 40-yard dash record at NFL Combine
It is not likely to happen, but that does not mean we can't talk about the performance Williams turned in on Sunday . The former Virginia Cavalier ran a 4.42 40-yard dash and led all players at the combine with a 44-inch vertical.

Anthony Barr has chose to stay in Minnesota. For his career, he has 13.5 sacks while averaging 68 tackles per season over five seasons.

The Vikings opted not to place the franchise tag on Barr.

Although Barr would make the Pro Bowl for the fourth consecutive year, many felt that his desire to obtain edge rusher money as opposed to 4-3 linebacker money would keep him out of the Vikings' price range, but it appears the two sides have reached some sort of compromise.

Barr has made four straight Pro Bowl appearances after missing out on the honor during his rookie campaign. Instead, the offseason came and went without the linebacker signing a new deal, thus forcing him to play out his fifth-year option in 2018.
