Aside from the hiring of offensive playcaller Scott Linehan, the loss of DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher and the signings of a few defensive linemen--the only big name of the group being Henry Melton--not much has changed around Valley Ranch from the end of last season to now.
But even with the lack of additions to the group that finished 8-8 and out of the playoffs for the third consecutive season last year, cornerback Brandon Carr remains confident in his teammates.
“We still have guys that are capable of going out there and producing, making plays and representing the star,” Carr told Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “We have a ton of talent that nobody knows about but the guys in the locker room.”
Carr believes much of last year’s troubles came about as a result of a much made-over roster and staff getting used to each other.
“It’s up to us to get the most out of each other each and every day and the coaches to do the same,” Carr said. “It’s still a learning process. We’re still growing as a team and figuring each other out. I just feel like we have what it takes inside that locker room. It’s up to us to unlock each and everyone’s potential to go out there and execute and win ballgames.”
