The free agent season is officially underway. NFL free agency began on Tuesday and the courting is already in full swing, as teams and players are meeting as soon as possible to try to lock down 2012 rosters. One of the Kansas City Chiefs players who is drawing plenty of interest on the open market is top cornerback Brandon Carr. The Dallas Cowboys were rumored to be interested in Carr for some time and it now appears that interest goes far beyond mere rumor.
According to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas, Carr will meet with the Cowboys on Tuesday night, with Dallas intent on signing the free agent to a "lucrative" contract. The Cowboys announced the release of cornerback Terence Newman on Tuesday, just before news broke of the team's meeting with Carr. The indication is that the Cowboys are either confident they can land Carr, or are prepared to go to any length to secure him.
