Barr was expected to be a pass rusher coming out of college.
He did play some snaps in his first 2 seasons at DE.
I remember some Von Miller comparisons when Barr was being talked up pre draft.
Barr never hit that level, but he was a solid LB in this league and is a very seasoned Vet Prescence that comes with a successful stat sheet for those that love those stat lines.
Bottom line is if anything Barr improves our bottom depth, but I see no reason why adding Barr for his price to some crazy chemistry taking place right now with a young savy cocky Parsons
driving home the narrative that this defense is going to bring some major heat, love having a vet like Barr just being in the locker room with a young elite talent like Parsons.
I want parsons to be a perennial Cowboy for entire tenure, retire a Cowboy, and having a steady eddie like Barr, if only for that sole purpose of mentorship is worth every penny.
