Anthony Barr seemed awfully close to landing in Detroit back in 2014. This week, it could finally happen.
The Detroit Lions are considered the favorite to land the Vikings linebacker when free agency opens next week, according to The Athletic. The Vikings and Jets are also in the mix according to the report.
Barr is a former UCLA star that the Lions were high on in the 2014 draft. So high, team sources say he could have been the pick if were still available at 10th overall. Alas, Minnesota took him one spot earlier and Detroit settled for tight end Eric Ebron instead.
