The Dallas Cowboys are well into the planning stages for their 2012 season. The latest free agent rumors link the Cowboys to current Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Brandon Carr, who will soon be hitting the open market.
Elliot Harrison of NFL.com took a look at six high-profile free agents on Wednesday, including Carr. Harrison did some speculation on where the talented DB could wind up. Harrison thinks Dallas is a fit for the free agent.
Brandon Carr to ... Dallas?
Another attractive corner is Brandon Carr, who has been one the AFC's better corners as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. With GM Scott Pioli opting to franchise WR Dwayne Bowe and sign CB Stanford Routt last month, Carr has been deemed expendable -- at least for the money he will be seeking, which will be in the Finnegan neighborhood.
Once again, the Cowboys are mentioned often in regards to Carr. That's the best option. The Joneses know the secondary killed their playoff hopes more than anything else, save maybe offensive-line play. If the Cowboys cut Terence Newman, they'll have enough room to make a push for Carr. If the money is in the same ballpark as an offer from, say, Tampa or Minnesota, the attractiveness of playing in Dallas, in that stadium, with a chance to win, should prevail.
It seems like Carr and the Cowboys will have mutual interest. We will have to wait and see how it all plays out.
