Brandon Carr came away very impressed with the Dallas Cowboys organization and their free agency recruiting. Last Tuesday, Brandon Carr received a tour of Cowboys Stadium and visited with Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett and most of their defensive coaches.
Carr stated … “This is where I wanted to be. I grew up watching the Cowboys and my first uniform was a No. 8 Troy Aikman jersey. I thought I wanted to come here, but once I got here and met everyone and saw this stadium, I knew it was where I wanted to be. I never dreamed I would get a contract like this. But if you consider yourself one of the top corners, you want to get paid as one of the top corners. With that comes a lot of responsibility. From the moment they came and got me to the moment I got to the stadium, it was just red-carpet treatment. They showed they wanted me. They were genuine with their words. That played a part in the process and my decision-making. The stadium is phenomenal – the best in the world. I’m excited to get in the uniform, get in the stadium and get to work. It’s a business. I still have a love for Kansas City and the fans. They supported me for four years through the ups and downs. I’ll always thank Herm Edwards for taking a chance on me through the grainy Division II film that he watched and taking a chance on me in the fifth round. Kansas City will always have a special place in my heart but it’s time to move on and I’m a Dallas Cowboy now.”
Carr signed a six-year contract that will be likely voided to five seasons worth $50.1 million and more than $25 million guaranteed.
