This isnt last year’s coaching staff. Williams will wear his ass as a shoe if he is lazy. 

What size shoe does Williams have?

How so? From what I've heard Barr can do it all (cover, rush the passer, play the run). I've only heard of Houston as a pass rusher. I don't follow other teams players much.

Barr was a beast as a pass rusher at UCLA. Vikes didn't use him that much as a rusher. Gotta figure that will change under Williams.

I'm just hoping this means the end of Darron Lee? Getting did of Lee is addition by subtraction.

“Only pass rushing”? Houston is a great pass rusher and that’s something w haven’t had in years. Barr has proven thus far in his career to be good. He does nothing great and he’s below average in coverage. I concede one thing tho, Barr still has pass rushing upside and that might be why we’re so hard for him.

I'd say if we get this done it's somewhere in the 5 years 97 million range. 

That is what the fake Rapoport said, but I read 5/70.  One is okay, the other probably unacceptable.

Agree.  Barr can’t sniff the qb we already have that with Jenkins

Barr has never had more than 4 sacks in a season

 

To put it in perspective. Quinton Coples has 6.5 sacks as a rookie and Jordan Jenkins had 7 last year

Because rushing the passer is way more important than the other stuff.

Lee and Skrine getting rid of both just by itself upgrades the D

Why the big woody for Barr? He has 13.5  career sacks and 1 interception.  I don't get it.  Splain Lucy.

Greg Williams wants to have his lovechild and Barr for some reason is a name

The Vikings played him out of position his entire career as a strongside 4-3 OLB and he still managed to be a pro-bowler.

His natural position was always as a 3-4 OLB.

The dude is 6’5 260 and had 24 sacks over his last two years at UCLA.

Barr appears to be a flexible, do-everything LB (at least in MIN's system).  That would be a nice compliment to a pure pass-rusher like, say, Josh Allen.  I am not very familiar with him, but if we target him and not Houston, that suggests to me that JA is the likely target in the draft.
