After making noise on the offensive side of the ball, the Jets finally land a big dawg on defense. Literally.
Former Vikings’ LB Anthony Barr intends to sign with the NY Jets, per league source. Jets get a pass rusher.

Reportedly, the Jets have reached an agreement with former Vikings LB Anthony Barr. The giant Barr comes in at 6ft 5inches and has been particularly effective in coverage.
Earlier reports, prior to free agency linked Barr to the Jets, saying they saw pass-rushing potential in the linebacker. New DC Gregg Williams will surely be able to find a way to unleash Barr on the AFC East.
Fun Note: We all remember Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen’s highlight leap over Barr last year. Now, Barr gets two cracks at Allen a year to nail him with revenge.
