Barr will instead remain with the Vikings. As much as allowing Barr to walk makes sense for the Vikings, given the limitations in terms of moving the needle for off-the-ball linebackers in that system, Barr's dual skillset makes sense for a Jets defense that, while now committing to the 3-4 under Gregg Williams, could salvage some value by moving him off of the ball should he fail to produce as an edge guy, making the move, from their end, make a lot of sense at first blush. Similar players like Mosley and Kwon Alexander were both given contracts totaling well over $10 million per year, so it's likely Barr is in store for a nice payday.
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.
At $13.5 million, that would make Barr the eighth-highest paid linebacker in 2019.
