TODAY'S THOUGHT

Every day is a battle. Will you rest in God's sovereignty, wisdom and grace, or give way to fear because you can't figure everything out?

    MINNESOTA VIKINGS-BARR

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Anthony Barr is staying in Minnesota after all. A person with direct knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that the four-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker has agreed to re-sign with the Vikings on a five-year, $67.5 million contract with $33 million guaranteed and an additional $10 million available through incentives. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity today because the deal had not yet been announced.
 
     Barr first had a verbal agreement to join the New York Jets, but he changed his mind to remain with the team that drafted him ninth overall out of UCLA in 2014.

    RICHARDSON-FREE AGENCY

    CLEVELAND (AP) - The Browns beefed up their defensive line before NFL free agency opened. Vikings tackle Sheldon Richardson agreed today to a three-year, $39 million contract with Cleveland, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.
 
     Richardson, who has played with three other teams since 2013 and been suspended twice by the NFL, will receive $21.5 million guaranteed, said the person who spoke on the condition of anonymity because league rules prohibit teams from announcing signings until 4 p.m. EDT Wednesday. ESPN was first to report Richardson's agreement.
 
     Richardson's imminent signing addresses a major need for the Browns, who wanted to upgrade their interior pass rush and give help to Pro Bowler Myles Garrett. It's the second move up front in the last week by general manager John Dorsey, who acquired edge rusher Olivier Vernon in a trade with the New York Giants.
 
     Richardson spent last season with Minnesota, where he had 49 tackles and 4  1/2 sacks in 16 games. The 28-year-old was the No. 13 overall pick by the Jets in 2013. In six seasons, Richardson has 23 1/2 sacks and 195 tackles in 87 games. Richardson was the AP's Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013 with the Jets.
 
     While talented, Richardson has also run into some trouble. He was suspended for the first four games in 2015 season for violating the substance-abuse policy for testing positive for marijuana. The league also suspended him for the first game in 2016 under its personal-conduct policy after he tried to outrun police in St. Louis, driving his Bentley at 143 mph before being stopped.

    GREEN BAY PACKERS-FREE AGENTS

    GREEN BAY (AP) - After making big splashes in free agency, the Green Bay Packers are cutting ties with veteran linebacker Nick Perry. General manager Brian Gutekunst announced the move today after the team agreed to deals with edge rusher Za'Darius Smith, linebacker Preston Smith, safety Adrian Amos and offensive lineman Billy Turner.
 
     "We want to thank Nick for his contributions to the Green Bay Packers and the community over the last seven seasons," Gutekunst said. "He did a tremendous job on the field, was a great teammate and a true professional."
 
     The 28-year-old Perry spent seven seasons with the Packers and had 228 tackles in 81 games.
 
     In other NFL moves:
 
     - The Denver Broncos are bolstering their secondary after releasing safety Darian Stewart. The Broncos are expected to sign free agent defensive back Kareem Jackson to a three-year, $33 million deal when free agency officially begins Wednesday. The Broncos also are expected to make former Miami Dolphins right tackle Ju'Wuan James the highest paid right tackle in the league. James is expected to sign a four-year, $51 million contract that includes $32 million in guarantees.
 
     - The Panthers have re-signed backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke to a one-year contract. Heinicke served as Cam Newton's backup last season and played in six games. He completed 33 of 53 passes for 274 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions in his lone start, a 24-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
 
     - The agent for offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe says the Buffalo Bills have agreed to sign his client to a two-year contract with a potential value of $14.5 million. Agent Vince Taylor says Nsekhe is guaranteed to earn $7.7 million under the deal. The 33-year-old Nsekhe spent the past four seasons with Washington, where he had 16 starts in 54 games playing behind Trent Williams and Morgan Moses.
 
     - The Cincinnati Bengals are keeping right tackle Bobby Hart with a three-year deal. The Bengals signed Hart as a free agent from the Giants last year as a stopgap measure, trying to improve their horrid line.
 
     - Four-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker C.J. Mosley is headed out of Baltimore after the Ravens abandoned hope of matching an offer made by the New York Jets. The Ravens hoped to keep Mosley, an unrestricted free agent who led the team in tackles twice since being selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. But first-year general manager Eric DeCosta couldn't come up with enough money to keep the five-year veteran.
 
     - The Atlanta Falcons have gained some much-needed salary cap room by restructuring quarterback Matt Ryan's contract. The Falcons confirmed that $8.75 million of Ryan's 2019 base salary will be paid as a signing bonus.
 
     - The Oakland Raiders have agreed to a four-year contract with free agent safety Lamarcus Joyner. The Raiders previously made big moves on offense by trading for receiver Antonio Brown and agreeing to a deal with tackle Trent Brown. Joyner now will help upgrade a defense that ranked last in the league in yards allowed per play and points allowed per game.
