In a stunning move, it appears the Minnesota Vikings will be bringing Anthony Barr back.
Mike Garafolo of NFL Network is reporting that Barr will not sign with the New York Jets, as was reported on Monday, and will agree to terms with the Vikings.

Barr has spent the last five seasons in Minnesota and made the Pro Bowl four times. Head coach Mike Zimmer has repeatedly said the team wanted its 2014 first-round pick to come back.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Barr got “cold feet” and decided to return.
The #Vikings are signing LB Anthony Barr to a 5-year deal worth $67.5M, source said. With incentives it can be worth $77.5M. He gets $33M in guarantees. And back home.
