The Kansas City Chiefs had a major decision to make when it came to the franchise tag this offseason. If they could not reach a long-term deal with either player, which they could not, they would have to let their best wide receiver go or a strong starter at cornerback from the last four seasons. They chose the former, so now the Chiefs are likely going to watch Brandon Carr sign with another team. That team could be the Dallas Cowboys. From Rotoworld:
“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 would be the biggest offseason addition for any secondary on the open market, despite the presence of Finnegan. Carr is only 25, has an incredible record of health, is still entering his prime and would bolster any secondary in the league. For a team like the Cowboys with an aging secondary, he would be the best overall addition.
