The New York Jets: always the bridesmaid, never the bride.


That's not strictly true these days, as Gang Green did snag the biggest prize in free agency  in Le'Veon Bell, but that still must've been how they felt when linebacker Anthony Barr backed out of a deal and sign with the Vikings instead. If leaving them at the altar wasn't enough, Barr decided to give them a play-by-play from the bride's perspective.


When speaking about his decision to head back to the Twin Cities, Barr compared it to feeling like he was about to marry the wrong woman.

It's not as long as most marriages, but signing a long-term deal with the wrong team is definitely something you want to think about before the ink dries on the dotted line. 


We all know why Barr initially gravitated toward the Jets in the first place, and it's not because of the green on their jerseys-- the four-time Pro Bowler could have received more money in New York, but they obviously don't have the chance to make a run at the Super Bowl like the Vikings do.


Barr was more interested in staying with the team that drafted him, his home of the last five years. And can you really blame him?

Saying yes was about the money, but Barr knew immediately that it was the wrong idea.
