The Minnesota Vikings will have a decision to make in this offseason on Pro Bowl LB Anthony Barr. The 26-year-old Barr will be a free agent in the next few weeks, and there will be a market for the four-time Pro Bowler.
‘I love Minnesota, but I’m willing to play anywhere that I find fits, that fits comfortable, that I would have a role on a team with, and help win, so my possibilities are open,” Barr told TMZ Sports.
Based on his comments, Barr seems open to anything, including leaving Minnesota. Last offseason, the Vikings gave extensions to LB Eric Kendricks, WR Stefon Diggs, and DE Danielle Hunter, but not Barr.
In 2018, Barr had 55 tackles and three sacks in 13 games with Minnesota.
Recently, NFL.COM said the following about Barr: “It’s a bit of a concern that a great defensive coach like Mike Zimmer didn’t consistently get more out of him.”
Does Minnesota try to re-sign Barr? Do they franchise him? Do they let him walk? Should be interesting to see how they handle Barr in the offseason.
