When Brandon Carr came from Kansas City to Dallas on a five-year, $50 million deal in 2012, he moved from right corner to left corner. After four years in Dallas, he is now moving back to the right side.
“I like the right side,” Carr said, per Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I used to play right corner prior to coming here. We will see what the future holds. I just prefer the right side. We are trying to see what we can do.”
This move makes a lot of sense, and in fact, it wouldn’t be unfair to wonder why it wasn’t made sooner. Carr has struggled in Dallas to the point that he agreed to take a pay cut this offseason, and he doesn’t have an interception since Thanksgiving Day 2013.
The move also means Morris Claiborne is on the left side, and Claiborne is fine with the change.
“However it happens, I feel like I’m prepared to go play inside, outside, left corner, right corner,” Claiborne said. “It doesn’t matter.”
