Cowboys sign previous Ravens cornerback Brandon Carr to practice team
The veteran cornerback checked out Dallas recently and signed to its practice team Sunday, the group announced. Carr had remained a free agent throughout the offseason after the Ravens decreased his choice in March.
Some questioned if he would go back to Baltimore after the group recently launched safety Earl Thomas and lost cornerback Iman Marshall for the season with an injury. Rather, Carr rejoins the Cowboys, whom he had fun with 5 seasons (2012-16).
The 34-year-old protective back is coming off one of his quieter projects, connecting a career-low with six deflections and no interceptions, though he did record two sacks and 4 deals with for loss. He has begun 16 video games every year given that being drafted by the Chiefs in 2008. His 192 consecutive starts is the second-longest active in the NFL, behind Philip Rivers (224 ).
Carr initially must make Dallas’ active lineup, obviously, and he has simply one week to do it.
