LB Anthony Barr backs out on Jets deal, will stay with Vikings

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

According to multiple reports, Barr changed his mind on signing with the New York Jets and has opted instead to return to the Minnesota Vikings.

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.

In five seasons with the Vikings, Barr has totaled 13.5 sacks and been voted to the Pro Bowl four times.

The one big advantage the Vikings likely had in their negotiations is the fact that Barr is familiar with their defense.

Prior to this deal, Barr has made $25 million throughout his career per Spotrac.

According to the MMQB, Barr will be taking less money to remain with Minnesota - he reportedly is signing a multi-year deal worth $13.5 million per season.

Meanwhile, despite losing out on Barr, the Jets did reach a five-year, $85 million agreement with linebacker C.J. Mosley, who spent the last five years with the Ravens. He's been a Pro Bowler each of the last four years.

Barr's fate had been a hot topic among the Vikings' past two offseasons as the team tried to extend all of their young players while also making a major financial commitment to new quarterback Kirk Cousins.
