WFAN's Joe Benigno, a lifelong Jets fan, was feeling good about the team's moves in free agency Tuesday. 

And then Anthony Barr happened.

The linebacker who had reportedly agreed to terms with the Jets on Monday night backed out of the deal and is returning to the Vikings. It looked for a while as though the Jets had landed arguably the top two linebackers in free agency -- Barr and C.J. Mosley. But that didn't quite pan out.

"Does that mean Mosley's not going to sign now, too?" Benigno said after his co-host, Evan Roberts, reported on Barr's change of heart.

"Can you imagine?" Roberts responded.

"No, I could. I'm a Jet fan," Benigno said. "Why wouldn't I imagine that?"

"I'm not so excited anymore," Benigno added. "I wanted Barr more than Mosley."

For the record, there is no indication Mosley won't sign on the dotted line with the Jets.
