NFL Free Agents 2012: Cowboys Reportedly Pursuing DB Brandon Carr

As anyone who watched the Dallas Cowboys latest December collapse could have guessed, Cowboys owner/GM/PR director Jerry Jones has been focusing on improving the team's secondary this off-season, either through the draft or free agency.

On Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Cowboys would have interest in Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Brandon Carr.

"The Dallas Cowboys are expected to have a heavy interest in Brandon Carr," Schefter said on SportsCenter. Schefter, ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins, and Pro Football Weekly have now all reported that the Cowboys will be in hot pursuit of Carr. Dallas is also expected to be in on free agent Cortland Finnegan, though Carr offers better size and superior tools for press coverage.

Carr is widely seen as the Cowboys top choice on the DB market, with Cortland Finnegan (Tennessee Titans) coming in as the consolation prize.
