New York Jets sign Anthony Barr: Grade, reaction and more

How Anthony Barr went from signing with the Jets to staying with the Vikings How Anthony Barr went from signing with the Jets to staying with the Vikings

After signing receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy early in the day, the Jets made another huge splash by luring Barr away from the Minnesota Vikings. This was despite the UCLA product playing an entirely different position than what he did in college. In 71 career games, Barr has 338 tackles and 13.5 sacks. 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.

The Vikings opted not to place the franchise tag on Barr. Last season, Barr ranked as the league's 26th linebacker per Pro Football Focus. Moreover, don't expect him to exclusively be an edge rusher.

U.S. withdrawing all remaining diplomatic personnel from Venezuela - State Department
Maduro has long claimed the political turmoil in his country has been caused by an American-backed coup. Most US staff serving in Venezuela's capital Caracas had already been moved in January.

Given that Barr will now be doing his thing as a pure pass rusher in the Jets' 3-4 scheme, we're expecting big things from him.

Now, Barr will likely be looked at as more of an edge rusher than an off-ball linebacker, especially given that the Jets are still reportedly interested in adding linebacker C.J. Instead, the offseason came and went without the linebacker signing a new deal, thus forcing him to play out his fifth-year option in 2018. They entered Tuesday with about $9 million to $10 million in cap space with Barr unsigned.
