Barr enters the offseason as a free agent after five seasons in Minnesota.

Linebacker Anthony Barr is heading into an NFL offseason for the first time as a free agent. One of the few Vikings not to get a contract extension, Barr said he hasn't worried about what's next, but he was asked about the future after Minnesota's season ended with a 24-10 loss to Chicago on Sunday.

"I don't think about it much," Barr said. "Like I've been saying all year, let it figure itself out and give it time."

Asked if he'd like to be back in Minnesota, Barr said, "sure."

After the Vikings' letdown against Chicago, Barr was one of the most outspoken players in regards to missing the playoffs.

"The game we played today is not a playoff performance, " Barr said. "You can't go out there and play the way we did and expect to make the playoffs. The way we played, we don't deserve to be in the playoffs."
