Carr had an interception, four passes defensed, and three tackles in Sunday's win over the Browns.
The veteran has looked impressive through his first two games in Baltimore with two interceptions thus far. According to Pro Football Focus, Carr was targeted 10 times Sunday and allowed just three receptions for 37 yards. Carr is locked into the starting role opposite Jimmy Smith and is clearly playing well enough to limit Baltimore's need to lean on rookie Marlon Humphrey.
The Ravens were rumored to have interest in Morris Claiborne, who started across from Carr in the Dallas secondary for much of last season. The 30-year-old corner has started all 16 games in each of his nine NFL seasons, and while his availability has been the model of consistency, the quality of his play has been a different story. He was often exploited by No. 1 wideouts during his five-year tenure in Dallas, with his playmaking ability (one interception over the last three seasons) also leaving something to be desired. However, he should provide an upgrade in Baltimore, where the No. 2 and 3 cornerback spots are an annual weakness. Carr should draw easier matchups with his new team, as the other projected starters in the secondary -- CB Jimmy Smith and safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson -- are all stellar.
Carr finished the regular season with 61 tackles and nine passes defended in 16 games, including his first INT since 2013.
The 30-year-old has never missed a game in his NFL career, so while he doesn't make many impact plays, his reliability does have value. Carr is a free agent this offseason, but could return to the Cowboys if they aren't able to find an upgrade on the open market.
