The Chiefs publicly say that they still want to sign Brandon Carr to a contract to keep the cornerback opposite Brandon Flowers for 2012 and possibly beyond. This comes, however, after the seemingly opposing fact that they’ve already signed former Raiders corner Stanford Routt to a three-year deal. It’s likely, despite any conversation to the contrary, that the Chiefs will watch Carr leave to another team. That team, according to recent draft rumors from the NFL Combine, is the Dallas Cowboys.
The Draft Insider notes, “Teams here in Indianapolis feel when the dust clears in free agency cornerback Brandon Carr will be the newest member of the Dallas Cowboys. The team will then look to use their first selection on an offensive lineman, but who? Last night we reported the Baltimore Ravens would likely target Cordy Glenn. They may need a back-up plan as word is Glenn continues to sky-rocket up draft boards and ending up with Dallas in the top half of round one is a real possibility.”
Carr would definitely aid an ailing and aging secondary since Carr is only 25 even after four full seasons of starting in the Kansas City defensive backfield. Carr wants the chance to make top cornerback money and he would find a larger platform and lots of money with Jerry Jones as his owner.
