Earlier this offseason, the Dallas Cowboys seemed intent on bolstering their pass rush.

Dallas made significant offers to Randy Gregory and Von Miller - both of whom opted to sign elsewhere. In late July, the team brought in former Atlanta Falcons star Takkarist McKinley as well.

While the team didn't sign sign a pass rusher, they are adding to the defensive side of the ball. According to a report from NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo, the Cowboys signed former No. 9 overall pick Anthony Barr.

Check it out.

The Minnesota Vikings selected Barr with their first-round pick in 2014. The former UCLA star made his presence felt immediately, earning Pro Bowl honors in just his second season.

That was the first of his four-consecutive Pro Bowl appearances for the Vikings. After spending his entire eight-year career with the Vikings, Barr is ready to step into a new uniform.
