Barr spurns Jets, to stay with Vikings

This was going to be an intriguing challenge for new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who surely liked what Barr accomplished during his final two years at UCLA, from 2012-13, even though he has just 13.5 career sacks in the National Football League, largely due to his role in Minnesota.

While Barr is the first to pull this move this offseason, DeAndre Jordan, a high-profile National Basketball Association player, pulled a similar move several years ago. 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. Barr was New York's top option at the position, but there are still plenty of talented edge rushers still available for the taking.

Shortly thereafter, the Lions agreed to terms on a five-year deal worth about $17 million to $18 million a year with former Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers.

Barr was the Vikings first-round draft pick in 2014.

Macy, who was not charged Tuesday, paid $15,000 to the fake charity to enable their elder daughter to cheat on the Saturday . Thirteen of those accused, including Huffman, were arrested and slated for arraignment late Tuesday in Los Angeles.


According to reports, Barr received a bigger contract offer to sign with the Jets, who wanted to use him more in pass-rush situations than the Vikings have. He got both from the Browns.

In five seasons with the Vikings, Barr has totaled 13.5 sacks and been voted to the Pro Bowl four times.

In six seasons, Richardson has 23 ½ sacks and 195 tackles in 87 games. "My time in Minnesota has been unforgettable because of the fans, the community and most importantly because of the guys in that locker room".

Free agency opens Wednesday.
