Vikings LB Anthony Barr Wants to Stay in Minnesota

Anthony Barr has made three straight Pro Bowls for the Vikings, and he has no desire to play for another team, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The linebacker said Tuesday he is hopeful of signing a long-term contract extension with Minnesota this offseason.

“Yeah, I love it here,’’ Barr said. “Absolutely. I really love my teammates. I really love this team. I love the city. I could see myself being here for the future.’’

Barr will make $12.306 million in 2018, the final year on his five-year rookie deal. The Vikings are expected to attempt by the start of training camp in late July to lock him up to a long-term extension.

Barr didn’t want to speculate on what sort of deal the Vikings would need to offer for him to sign. He said that will be in the hands of his agent.

“I don’t really worry about that kind of stuff,’’ he said. “Money comes and goes, so I’ll be happy just to be secure.’’
