PHOTO: Vikings photoshop Barr into ‘Back To The Future’ movie poster
Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr can do it all. He can set a strong edge against the run just as well as he penetrates the backfield as a pass-rusher. The versatile linebacker can even drop into coverage when the Vikings ask him to do so.
It’s difficult to think of something Barr can’t do, but can you imagine him acting?
The Vikings had a little fun on Wednesday and photoshopped Anthony Barr into a movie poster as if he were the star of a Back To The Future sequel directed by general manager Rick Spielman.

The classic science-fiction film is celebrating the 30-year anniversary of its release in theaters, so it’s a very trendy topic on social media. Some theaters across the country have even brought back showings of the 1985 movie.
Barr was born seven years after the original release date of Back To The Future, but he still makes a pretty good Marty McFly in the Vikings’ version of the movie poster. It’s too bad they didn’t include head coach Mike Zimmer as Dr. Emmett "Doc" Brown.
