Quoting "sources", Pro Football Weekly today reports that the Cowboys “covet” free agent CB Brandon Carr and are expected to “make a run at him” when the market opens.
All the talk prior to free agency is over which offensive lineman the Cowboys might sign. But another high-profile player at a different position could end up being the apple of their eyes.
Sources have said the Cowboys would love for Chiefs CB Brandon Carr to hit the open market, so they can make a run at him. The expectation is that the Chiefs could franchise Carr and are said to be in fine cap shape, but they also have WR Dwayne Bowe to worry about. If Carr somehow makes it to March 13 unsigned, expect the Cowboys to go all in for him and worry about a high-profile guard (Carl Nicks or someone else) thereafter.
There is little doubt that Carr would be a good match for the Cowboys. The Cowboys have to do something to improve their cornerback play, and Carr would be an immediate upgrade from day one, especially in man coverage. Best of all, Carr will be just 26 when the season starts and is orders of magnitude the youngest free agent corner on the market, which would make him not just a stop-gap but a potential long-term answer for the Cowboys.
Carr is young. He plays a premium position. He's a good locker room guy. He has a proven track record. What's not to like?
Unless of course, somebody is just name-dropping the Cowboys in an effort to drive Carr's price up. So what do you think, should the Cowboys go "all in" to get Carr?
