Barr elected to re-sign with the Vikings after initially telling the New York Jets that he would sign with them.

The 26-year-old South Bend, Indiana native has spent the last five seasons with the Vikings. He was the team’s 9th overall pick in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. 

This season, he appeared in 13 games, including 13 starts. He had 55 tackles, including eight tackles for a loss, and four quarterback hits. 

He had 3.0 sacks, one forced fumble, and two pass deflections. 

In his career, he has made 71 appearances, including 71 starts. He had 338 tackles, including 30 tackles for a loss, and 31 quarterback hits. 

Barr has 13.5 sacks, one interception, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, including one returned for a touchdown; and 22 pass deflections.
