Vikings Back in the Picture for Linebacker Anthony Barr?

It’s been a tough 24 hours for Vikings fans as they felt they were on the verge of losing one of their better defensive players, linebacker Anthony Barr.

Reports now indicate that Barr is not gone from Minnesota just yet, as Ralph Vacchiano, NFL Insider for SNY says that Barr is backing out of his reported deal with the New York Jets.

It was thought that the Jets were going to pay Jets Barr somewhere in the range of $13 million to $14 million per year, but the Vikings may have upped their offer and now it sounds like Barr is having second thoughts.

It remains to be seen if the Vikings have done enough to keep Barr, but the fact that he’s even having thoughts of backing out of his reported deal with the Jets is a good sign.
