Draft Scout Brandon Carr News
12/18/14 - CB Brandon Carr has just nine pass deflections and no interceptions in 2014. He has actually gone 29 games without an interception. Coach Jason Garrett said earlier in the week the Cowboys had no thoughts of benching Carr because he remains a key part of the defense. Owner Jerry Jones said Carr has not lived up to the enormous expectations placed on him after signing a five-year, $50.2 million contract in 2012. But he said he is glad he is on the team and glad he is still paying him because of the size he brings to the cornerback position.
"Oh I think that one of the things that creates a challenge for him is it's like the same one that a No. 1 draft pick has," Jones said. "The expectation of what he's supposed to bring to the table, is one that is really very difficult to meet. Now, has he played at a Pro Bowl level? No, he has not. And therein lies the issue. The expectation is that he would play at a Pro Bowl level. I'm not as hard on him as possibly it looks like we should be or others are because I know that he does give us a skill level and a size component back there that is very important to us right now.
"I'm glad we got him. I'm glad I'm paying him. Like everybody you'd like to have your deal squared up more to the value of where it is but that's just part of this. And he's very capable. He plays the ball well. One of his skills is how well he plays the ball and let's hope that he makes that interception at the time that goes down in history for the Dallas Cowboys."
