The curious career of new Jets defender Anthony Barr | NFL Analysis

Per Ian Rapoport, Barr will receive a five-year deal with $67.5 million with $33 million in guarantees. The Vikings used Barr as an off-ball linebacker in their 4-3 scheme, and now will stay here instead of going into New York's 3-4 scheme.

The Jets, prepared to pay Barr about $14 million per year to be an outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme, now find themselves in need of an edge rusher. There are sack incentives worth up to $12 million, a source told ESPN, confirming a report by NFL Network, which first reported the news. The Vikings declined to franchise tag Barr by the deadline last week. The team would have incurred an estimated $15.7 million cap hit in 2019 with the move. When Cook had a hamstring injury in 2018, Murray started six games and finished the year with 578 yards.

Barr's contract year was filled with ups and downs as he played in 13 games and tallied a career-low with 55 tackles (39 solo).

Instead of heading to NY as a pass rushing linebacker, the four-time Pro Bowler became the second free agent in as many years to spurn a larger offer from the Jets, following what Kirk Cousins did last year.

"It's been a insane couple days, but I'm where I want to be", Barr wrote on his Instagram page. However, that changed Tuesday when the Vikings increased their offer to the four-time Pro Bowl selection.

Free agency is always filled with a series of unforeseeable twist and turns.
