Draft Scout Brandon Carr News
01/11/13 - CB Brandon Carr proved to be welcome upgrade at cornerback, although he may not be worth his $50.1 million contract. He was a difference maker on the field and in the locker room.
12/20/12 - CB Brandon Carr was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week following his overtime interception that led to the game-winning field goal against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It was Carr's third interception this season. He leads the team with three interceptions and 10 pass breakups. Carr has continued to draw praise from the Cowboys for his character, work ethic and production. All have shown through despite the tragedies in Kansas City and Dallas that have affected him as much as anyone in the NFL because of his ties to both teams.
"We all were really, really happy for Brandon," coach Jason Garrett said of Carr's performance Sunday. "He's been going through a lot of stuff here this last couple of weeks, the situation that happened in Kansas City, how close he was to that, obviously the situation we've had here. His week last week was absolutely crazy as a person and then he made a big play in the ball game in Cincinnati.
"It's been really inspirational the way he's been able to battle through all this stuff and fight through."
It is his first year with the Cowboys after signing a five-year deal in free agency worth $50.1 million to come over from the Kansas City Chiefs.
12/17/12 - CB Brandon Carr keyed the victory over the Steelers with a interception in overtime. It was his second straight game with an interception.

03/14/12 - CB Brandon Carr agreed on a a five-year, $50.1 million deal with the Cowboys.
Carr had arrived in the Dallas area on Tuesday, the first day of free agency, and he negotiated with the team Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the Dallas Morning News and ESPNDallas.com.
Carr takes the place of cornerback Terence Newman. Dallas released Newman on Tuesday to save $6 million on this year's salary cap, including an extra $2 million by designating him as a "June 1" cut.
Carr, 25, has started all 64 games in his pro career since he was the Kansas City Chiefs' fourth-round draft pick in 2008. He had a career-high four interceptions for the Chiefs last year.
