Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings outside linebacker Anthony Barr has agreed to re-sign with the Vikings after saying on Monday that he intended to sign with the Jets, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Barr has been exceptional for the Vikings, so retaining him is a big plus going into the 2019 season. Barr has gone to four straight Pro Bowls in the last four seasons for Minnesota.
The New York Jets and free-agent linebacker Anthony Barr (Vikings) agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal on Monday. Barr recorded 55 combined tackles with three sacks and two passes defensed across 13 games for the Vikings last season. He made a total of 338 stops during his first five years in the league with Minnesota, emerging as a solid fantasy option for those in formats using individual defensive players (IDPs). The Jets needed to bolster their defense, and they might not be done, as they are also pursuing free-agent linebacker C.J. Mosley (Ravens).
Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) and strong safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) have both been ruled out for Week 8 against the Saints. Defensive tackle Linval Joseph (ankle, knee) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (foot) are both questionable, leaving the Minnesota defense very banged up heading into a matchup against one of the more potent offenses in the league. Getting defensive end Everson Griffen back from his mental-health issues is good news, but he might also have his snaps limited. The Vikings defense/special teams is a fade this weekend.
