The Jets are set to upgrade the linebacker spot in a hurry in free agency, as Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team is set to ink Vikings free agent LB Anthony Barr.
Former Vikings’ LB Anthony Barr intends to sign with the NY Jets, per league source. Jets get a pass rusher.

Barr has spent the last five years with the Vikings, starting 71 games, appearing in four Pro Bowls and being one of the best defensive players to play in Minnesota.
The Jets are expected to be very active in free agency in 2019, and this is a big start for new coach Adam Gase and the teams’ defense.
