Since striking up a five-year, $50 million deal last week, the Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Brandon Carr have been having a bit of a love-in.
Shortly after the signing was made official, Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan told the press that he was sure the team got the right man for the job. Since then, Carr has not only made clear that the feeling is mutual, but, he told ESPN Radio 103.3’s “Galloway and Company” last week, he didn’t want to go anywhere else.
"There were teams that were interested, but I wanted to give the Cowboys my first visit because I felt like at the end of the day, I could see myself in a Cowboys uniform,” said Carr, who grew up a Cowboys fan, per ESPN Dallas. “Just by doing my research on the coaching staff and just watching a little film on my own, just different things that coaching, how they put their guys in situations to excel, I said, ‘man, this is something I want to be a part of.’ Once I got there they didn’t hold me hostage. They took care of me and treated me well.
“The respect level was high and at the end of the day, I was happy with the Dallas Cowboys and I didn’t want to go anywhere else.”
