The Ravens made another move to bolster the secondary, signing former Cowboys corner Brandon Carr. The team announced the move Friday.
We have reached a 4-year agreement with CB Brandon Carr.— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) March 16, 2017
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the four-year deal has multiple options that allow the team flexibility. It has the potential to be worth $24 million, but will more likely end up a two-year, $12 million signing.
Brandon Carr signing a 1-year deal with series of options to make it a 4-year, $24M deal w/ Ravens, per source. Likely a 2-year, $12M deal.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2017
The 30-year-old found himself at the end of a five-year, $50 million deal with Dallas, where he started alongside Morris Claiborne.
He finished last season with one interception, nine passes defended, two sacks and 61 tackles. Pro Football Focus ranked him the No. 52 cornerback in the NFL in 2016.
Carr has 15 career interceptions in his nine seasons in the NFL. In Baltimore, Carr will likely start opposite Jimmy Smith. Because the Ravens have dealt with significant injuries in the secondary, it's notable that Carr appeared in all 16 games in each of his five seasons with the Cowboys.
The news of Carr's signing comes after a report earlier in the day that the Ravens were interested in Claiborne. With Baltimore opting for Carr, Claiborne will reportedly sign with the Jets.
That leaves the Cowboys without their two starting corners from the past several seasons.
