Cowboys Ink Carr

It is no secret that the Cowboys struggled in their secondary all season last year. Struggles that cost 9-year veteran Terrance Newman his job earlier this week. But, the Cowboys knew they needed an upgrade and it appears they have landed him.

The Cowboys reached a five year deal with, former Chief corner, Brandon Carr. Carr, 26, entered the league as a fifth round draft choice of the Chiefs out of Grand Valley State University. He quickly asserted himself and climbed the ladder to become one the NFL’s most talented corners. Carr is the good sized, aggressive defensive back the Cowboys have needed in their pressure package. The financial details were not released, but it is thought to be north of $7 million a season.

The Cowboys have been working hard to sign Carr since free agency began on Tuesday. The signing is great news for fans of a Cowboys secondary that routinely got torched last year.

    5 years, $50m … damn, those CBs and WRs don’t come cheap do they.

    That’s why teams need to keep drafting them no matter what. And add pass rushers to that list.

    Hopefully they live up to those hefty price tags. The Cowboys needed a makeover in the secondary, hopefully Carr can be that guy!
