View Full Version : Cowboys Sign Brandon Carr

Looks like 5 years and 50.1 mil.


Cowboys signed CB Brandon Carr to a five-year, $50.1 million contract. The extra $100,000 is no coincidence, enabling Carr to top Cortland Finnegan's $50 million deal with the Rams. The No. 8 player on Profootballtalk's Hot 100 Free Agents, Carr was easily the top defensive back remaining on the market. Possessing youth (26), ideal size and press coverage skills, Carr will be a major upgrade on Terence Newman. The Cowboys did well to land their top free-agent target.

Frees up the draft for a G, OLB, or S.

Glad it wasn't Finnegan

Good pickup, now they can get Mark Barron at 14 and really turn that secondary around.

Agree. I didn't want Finnegan.

Here is what they are saying

Like Carr signing for DAL. Tough corner can play press man + off man. Also zone. Feisty + aggressive. Really like his playing personality.

Over past two seasons, new Cowboys CB Brandon Carr has knocked down 28 passes, second in the NFL, behind only Joe Haden and his 30.

Jerry said they would be active but I'm not sure how much more they can do. Nicks was too steep and already signed. They also are trying to resign Laurent Robinson and he is being courted elsewhere.

They just signed Vickers.

I admittedly don't watch as much football as I used to, but I still have no idea who this guy is. I thought $10mil per was steep, but I guess that's the market.
