Vikings contract-year LB Anthony Barr says that he and his agent haven’t had any communication with the team regarding an extension up to this point.

“I haven’t had any communication with my agent or anything regarding the Vikings really throughout the season, so my focus has been on the season and everything else is after,’’ Barr said, via the Pioneer Press.

Barr declined to say if he would have an interest in signing an extension with the Vikings and added he hasn’t “really thought about” the possibility of Minnesota using their franchise tag on him.
