Vikings burn Jets again Anthony Barr situation brings back memories of Antoine Winfield

While outside linebacker Anthony Barr spurning the Jets will sting their long-suffering fan base for at least a little while, this is a blow the Jets should be able to recover from. This time, the Jets have opted to address defense in the form of the athletic Barr.

It remains to be seen how the Vikings will fit the four-time Pro Bowler's contract in under the salary cap.

In 2018, his pass-rushing productivity of 13.8 in 94 pass rushes led all off-the-ball linebackers and would have been first among edge players. 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.

There have been no reported details at the moment. From an athletic standpoint and overall skill set, the two are very reminiscent of each other but their National Football League careers could go very different ways.

But considering it's only done after all other fixes have failed, recovering from one may still be a very time-consuming process. It will also delay reinstalling the updates for 30 days to give Microsoft time to diagnose the issues before trying again.

The Vikings may need to move around more money. Moreover, don't expect him to exclusively be an edge rusher.

The Jets had big plans for Barr, as they tried to turn him into the high-sacks edge rusher that he wasn't in Minnesota.

The Jets can't make the signing official until Wednesday. Still, Barr is a versatile enough athlete to play anywhere in the front seven and Williams will hopefully be able to get the most out of his talent.
