Anthony Barr reportedly spurns Jets to return to Minnesota Vikings

Barr agreed to sign with the Jets on Monday, but he changed his mind Tuesday and will return to the Vikings, after the Jets were set to give him about $14 million to $15 million annually.

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. He adds that Barr could earn up to $77.5 through incentives, and $33 million of the deal is guaranteed.

He was the second-best free agent linebacker on's list of the 101 best free agents, behind only Minnesota's Barr. A healthy Mosley - who's missed only three games in five seasons - commanded more on the open market than Alexander.

After the Vikings hired a defensive-minded coach in Mike Zimmer back in 2014, he went out and made Barr the first pick of his head coaching career when he selected the former UCLA linebacker with the ninth overall pick.

The deal with the Vikings is reportedly worth $13.5 million per season.

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.

Named to four straight Pro Bowls after a breakout year in 2015, Barr was one of four Minnesota players eligible for a contract extension last offseason.

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