Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr has brought down six interceptions in his first two seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, but he’s also had stretches rough enough to make many fans wonder if Dallas didn’t overpay for his services when they gave him a five-year, $50 million deal in 2012.
In the locker room, though, there’s little doubt that Carr--who said this offseason that he intends on “taking over the league” in 2014 along with his mates in the secondary--will live up to any and all expectations brought on by the size of his contract.
“I expect him to live up to that contract, and I know he will,” said safety Barry Church, via ESPN Dallas. “He’s been putting in a lot of work this offseason. Me and him especially have working on our footwork drills, man-to-man drills and lifting together and running together.
“I feel like he’s got just a whole new focus going into this season. He wants to, like he said earlier in one of his interviews, take over the league. I feel like he can be one of those top-3 corners in the NFL. I feel like he’ll show everybody this year. I definitely have the faith in him to live up to that contract, and I know he will.”
