Barr had a change of heart overnight and has chose to re-sign with the Vikings, CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora confirms.

After reaching a deal with Gang Green Monday evening, Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr has backed out of the agreement, according to the NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

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.

The Jets entered the offseason with about $100 million in salary cap space, and they have put it to good use.

The Vikings opted not to place the franchise tag on Barr.

But I came back the next morning with a big spirit, with a big confidence for Sunday first and also for this week. Aubameyang then converted the penalty, making up for his missed spot kick at Tottenham Hotspur a week earlier.

The 26-year-old is coming off a 55-tackle, three-sack campaign for the Vikings last year.

The deal is reportedly worth $39 million and includes $21.5 million in guarantees. He has started all of his 71 career games, making 338 tackles, including 30 for loss and 13.5 sacks.

Barr has spent all five of his National Football League seasons with Minnesota, earning Pro Bowl nods in each of the past four years.

At the last second, the Vikings sent a private jet out to court Winfield and at the eleventh hour, he would change course and sign a six-year, $34.8 million contract with Minnesota. While Barr earned four-straight Pro Bowl invitations as an off-ball.

Given that Barr will now be doing his thing as a pure pass rusher in the Jets' 3-4 scheme, we're expecting big things from him.
