On Wednesday, the Dallas Cowboys announced the signing of former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr to a one-year deal.
The team waived rookie linebacker Aaron Hansford Wednesday morning which opened up a roster spot for Barr.
Barr, who has spent all eight years of his career in Minnesota, made four straight Pro Bowls from 2015 to 2018. He has 388 career tackles, 16 sacks and four interceptions.
He appeared in 11 games last season, finishing with 72 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and three interceptions.
Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reported via Twitter that the one-year deal is worth up to $3 million. Barr reportedly turned down more money from other teams in order to reunite with LB coach George Edwards who coached Barr for six years in Minnesota.
Barr lives in Los Angeles and will join the team in Oxnard for tomorrow's practice.
