He played on the right side in Kansas City, but Mo Claiborne's lengthy injury history has forced Carr to line up on the left for most of his tenure in Dallas, with inconsistent (at best) results. Claiborne has actually been healthy so far this offseason, though, so the team will try to ease Carr back into the spot where he's most comfortable. Don't expect this to have a big impact on Carr's IDP value if it lasts, but it could help the
Carr was set to make $9.1 million in the final year of the contract he signed with the Cowboys back in 2012, but with no guaranteed money left on the deal, he could have been simply cut after June 1. The new deal keeps Carr in Dallas with a base salary of $4.25 million, which could increase to $6 million after bonuses.
Brandon Carr finished the 2015 season with a career-high 76 tackles, but failed to intercept a pass for the season straight season.
The tackles gave him a little IDP value in deep formats, but the veteran cornerback has one more season left on his contract and his declining performance could result in Carr being a cap casualty in the offseason. The Dallas Cowboys have depth issues at DB, however, so depending on how they address the position in the draft, Carr could end up sticking around for one more year in Dallas.
Carr needed the surgery to fix a broken bone in his hand, but he is expected to be ready for the regular season.
"I take a lot of pride in being able to fight through whatever is going on to suit up on Sunday," he said. "At the same time, I've been blessed. It's not all me. It's really not me at all. I've just been blessed to play through certain injuries and stay away from the major ones."
Carr will have surgery to repair the fracture on Monday, and his timetable for a return is still unknown.
“He’s going to be out for a little bit here,’’ head coach Jason Garrett said. “We don’t think it’s serious. It’s a similar injury to what DeMarco Murray had last year when he played in the game, four or five days later.
“The biggest thing with this is getting the surgery done correctly, which we’re confident is going to happen, and then handling the incision and see what he’s capable of doing.’’
