As part of their effort to revamp the secondary this offseason, the Dallas Cowboys signed free agent cornerback Brandon Carr to a five-year, $50 million deal, a little over half of which is guaranteed. But Carr isn’t feeling any added pressure as a result of these gaudy numbers.
"No pressure," Carr said this week, per ESPN Dallas. "I've loved playing this game since I was in the fourth grade. I'm just going to relax and do my job and I have confidence in myself. You have ups and downs on that island but at the end of the day, you got to go out and compete and work my butt off."
In the first day of training camp out in Oxnard, Ca., Carr reportedly spent most of the day covering the likes of Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, matchups that will help an ultra-competitive atmosphere that, Carr believes, will serve everyone well in the long run.
"I'm getting some good work in," he said. "This core is among the best in the league right now. Everyday you want to compete and they will push you out here. Dez is a tremendous athlete. He has the ability to push you down the field. He's strong and just him learning the game, his third year in, he's still learning the game and that light blub is going to click. But every day we're going to work and get after it."
