Brandon Carr was one of a handful of Cowboys to have their contracts restructured this week and according to the veteran corner, who landed in Dallas with a five year, $50.1 million deal last year, he was glad to help in the team’s effort to improve via free agency.
"I restructured my contract basically just to free up some money to get some more players in,” Carr said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’m a team player. I believe in getting as many guys as possible that can help us get to our goal, and that’s to win a championship.
“This is another step in the right direction, not only myself, but other guys restructured as well. That’s a good sign that guys are willing to restructure their contracts in order to get new guys in or get better guys in to help us, hopefully, get a Super Bowl.”
Carr was one of five players to have their deals reworked this week, as the team prepares for the NFL's free agency period, which begins in a little under two weeks.
