A lot of Cowboys defenders have said that they feel they’ll be freed up to stop thinking as much as they did under Rob Ryan, and just play in the 4-3 system brought to town by Monte Kiffin. Cornerback Brandon Carr is no exception.
“It allows the corners to be aggressive at the line of scrimmage, every play challenging receivers,” Carr said, per the Dallas Morning News. “It allows us to go out there and dictate the flow of the game.”
Carr came to Dallas in free agency last season, with a five-year, $50 million deal. He went on to lead Dallas in interceptions with three and passes defended with 11.
“It allows me to be the corner that I want to be,” he said. “Go up there each play and challenge the receiver. That’s what I came into this league doing and that’s what I’ve been doing for some time in this league, and that’s how I made my name.
“It allows me to go back up to the line of scrimmage and it allows [Morris] Claiborne to do the same thing.”
