NFL Free Agents 2012: Cowboys Interested In Chiefs DB Brandon Carr

The Kansas City Chiefs will be making plenty of moves in the offseason, but it appears as though they will be parting ways with defensive back Brandon Carr. Rumors as of late have linked Carr to the Dallas Cowboys.

Elliot Harrison of NFL.com took a look at six high-profile free agents on Wednesday, including Carr. He believes that the DB will soon be Dallas-bound.

Brandon Carr to ... Dallas?

Another attractive corner is Brandon Carr, who has been one the AFC's better corners as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. With GM Scott Pioli opting to franchise WR Dwayne Bowe and sign CB Stanford Routt last month, Carr has been deemed expendable -- at least for the money he will be seeking, which will be in the Finnegan neighborhood.

Once again, the Cowboys are mentioned often in regards to Carr. That's the best option. The Joneses know the secondary killed their playoff hopes more than anything else, save maybe offensive-line play. If the Cowboys cut Terence Newman, they'll have enough room to make a push for Carr. If the money is in the same ballpark as an offer from, say, Tampa or Minnesota, the attractiveness of playing in Dallas, in that stadium, with a chance to win, should prevail.

The Cowboys have been rumored for some time to be high on Carr. We shall see whether he will be wearing a shiny new silver helmet when the season kicks off.
