Connor Hughes of reports that the Jets have expressed interest in free agent defensive back Brandon Carr. Although, they have yet to schedule a visit with Carr.

Hughes’ source added that “they like him.

Carr has previously mentioned that he was contemplating retirement, but it now appears as though he’s focus on returning for the 2017 season.

This is the first reported interest in Carr since the free agent market opened on Thursday.

Carr, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2008. After four years in Kansas City, Carr signed a five-year, $50.1 million contract that included $25.5 million guaranteed with the Cowboys in 2012.

Carr is currently testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2016, Carr appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and recorded 61 tackles, one interception and nine pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 52 cornerback out of 114 qualifying players.
