Details of the contract agreed upon between the Vikings and Barr were shared on Twitter by NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

After reportedly intending to sign the Jets on Monday night, four-time Pro Bowl linebacker Anthony Barr has chose to remain with the Vikings, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports.

The blitzing linebacker was the Jets' first coup of free agency and was followed Tuesday morning by reports they had signed C.J. Mosley to a five-year, $85 million deal. He adds that Barr could earn up to $77.5 through incentives, and $33 million of the deal is guaranteed. The Jets entered free agency with more than $82 million available under the salary cap. The Vikings declined to franchise tag Barr by the deadline last week.

Anthony Barr has made a decision to stay in Minnesota.

Barr, who turns 27 next week, will get a chance to finish what he started with the Vikings after five years where he mixed stretches of dominance with periods of relative anonymity, posting 13 ½ sacks, 22 pass defenses, seven forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and one interception (off Peyton Manning in 2015).

After signing receivers Jamison Crowder and Josh Bellamy early in the day, the Jets made another huge splash by luring Barr away from the Minnesota Vikings.

But Barr staying in Minnesota isn't the end of the world for the Jets.

Barr's contract year was filled with ups and downs as he played in 13 games and tallied a career-low with 55 tackles (39 solo).
