The Dallas Cowboys have officially signed LB Anthony Barr and placed him on the PUP list, per Nick Eatman

The Cowboys can activate Barr any time between now and the start of the regular season. It’s worth mentioning that a number of players start off on the PUP list during training camp before being cleared to play, so this isn’t a guarantee that Barr has a serious injury. 

Barr, 30, was taken with the No. 9 overall pick by the Vikings back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year $12,743,500 rookie contract and made a base salary of $2,157,750 for the 2017 season.

The Vikings elected to pick up Barr’s fifth-year option, which paid him around $12.306 million for the 2018 season. He entered unrestricted free agency in 2019 and, after initially committing to the Jets, returned to the Vikings on a five-year, $67.5 million deal.

Barr agreed to a pay cut entering the 2021 season that guaranteed a chunk of his salary and made him an unrestricted free agent in 2022. 

In 2021, Barr appeared in 11 games for the Vikings and recorded 72 total tackles, three tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, three interceptions and five pass deflections.
