Cornerback Brandon Carr admits that coming to a new team with a new system is a challenge for anyone, but as of early-June, the Cowboys’ landmark free agent signing of the offseason is beginning to settle into Rob Ryan’s 3-4 defense.
"When you change teams and the terminology changes, you try your best," Carr said this week, per the Dallas Morning News. "That's when it's like you have to go back to school and go through your notes every night when you come home."
After four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, where he earned his reputation as a ball-hawk, Carr signed a five-year deal with Dallas in March. Coming into OTAs at Valley Ranch, Carr had a plan for assimilating.
"Master what you have to do first, and then you can worry about where everyone else is on the field," he said. "My thing, as a corner, you got a couple players you're going to play and at the end of the day that's what it is. Now you have to take your game to the next level and know where your help is and where certain people are supposed to be so you can play to that.
"And that's where I'm getting to right now. Things are kind of slowing down for me. I'm getting comfortable out there."
