Tennesse Titans

The Titans would be an ideal fit for Barr. Tennessee runs a 3-4 defensive scheme and he could really rack up the sacks rushing the passer on a more consistent basis.

The Titans have enough cap room to sign Barr this year and his position is also a need of theirs.  Derrick Morgan is a free-agent this offseason and Brian Orakpo has decided to call it a career.

Tennessee does have promising young linebacker in Harold Landry ready to take over one of these spots left by Morgan and Orakpo, but the other remains wide open.

The Titans also hold the 19th pick in this year’s draft, so there is no guarantee that the edge-rusher they would want to select would still be on the board when it’s their time to pick.

Adding Barr could be the best option for Tennessee this offseason to guarantee that they get the outside pass rusher they need for 2019.

New York Jets

The Jets have a ton of cap room and really any available free-agent could be on their radar this year. For New York, Barr is a perfect fit on paper.

The Jets run a 3-4 defense where he could really excel and New York’s 2018 starting outside linebacker Brandon Copeland is a free-agent this offseason, as are backups Jeremiah Attaochu and former Vikings defender Emmanuel Lamur.

Like a few of the other teams on this list, New York is also picking early in the 2019 NFL Draft. Adding Barr in free agency would give the Jets room to address another position with the third overall draft selection or swing a trade with a quarterback-needy team to add valuable draft assets for the future.

Barr going to New York this year seems to be a very likely option because of the team having the most money that allows them to offer the linebacker a contract he just can’t refuse.
