Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones recently acknowledged the possibility of extending CB Brandon Carr‘s contract at some point.
“We’re always visiting there,” Jones said, via Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. “Ben Dogra represents him and I have a good relationship with Ben, so we’ll continue to see if there’s something that might work so that Brandon can be here for the next two, three, four years — get something that’s good for both sides. But if it doesn’t, we’re all ready to go.”
Earlier in the offseason, there was quite a bit of talk that the Cowboys could make Carr a post-June 1 release, and take the cap saving. However, that date has come and gone and it appears as though the Cowboys are at least weighing the possibility of him remaining with the team for another few years.
Carr, 28, was a marquee free agent signing back in 2012 when the Cowboys locked him up to a five-year, $50.1 million contract that included $25.5 million guaranteed.
He stands to make a base salary of $8 million next season and another $9.1 million in 2016. After Carr reworked his contract in 2013, a voidable year in 2017 was added for salary cap purposes.
In 2014, Carr recorded 54 tackles, one sack, and eight pass defenses over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 90 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
