Brandon Carr will depart the Dallas Cowboys and join a Baltimore Ravens team apparently looking to revamp their defense in one offseason. They signed safety Tony Jefferson, they’re interested in bringing cornerback Lardarius Webb back to the team and they also signed defensive tackle Brandon Williams to a new deal.
But the deal Brandon Carr received from the Ravens is interesting, to say the least. The Baltimore Ravens report the deal is four years long but Adam Schefter of ESPN says it’s more like a two-year deal worth $12 million.
We have reached a 4-year agreement with CB Brandon Carr.

In 2016, Carr appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and recorded 61 tackles, one interception, and nine pass defenses. He is rated as the No. 52 cornerback out of 114 qualifying players at his position, according to Pro Football Focus.
