I have to admit, I was bummed this morning when I saw the news that Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr had accepted an offer from the New York Jets. Then I saw this and breathed a sigh of relief!

I’m sure there will be plenty of moves made, where we can all second guess whats happening with our beloved team, and I do get the fact that maybe the Vikings could have replaced him through the draft, but overall I’m down with him staying on, especially since my wife bought me his jersey for Christmas last year.
Anthony Barr in 2018:
-Highest Run Defense (74.7) and Tackling (81.1) PFF grades of his career
-Career lows in missed tackles (4) and reception % allowed (73.3%)
-23 total pressures (2nd most in career)
-19 hurries (most in career)
