    Brandon Carr has been a solid player since signing his big five-year, $50 million deal a few years back, but the veteran cornerback took a lot of heat in 2014, and it was deserved.

    Carr didn't record a single interception as one of the league's highest-paid corners last season, and for someone making that type of money, was a huge disappointment.

    To no one's surprise, the Cowboys are really only interested in having Carr back in 2015 if he takes a cut in his pay, and that's reportedly something the two sides have been discussing.

    Cowboys owner and GM Jerry Jones was mum on the Carr talks at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, simply telling reporters, "I don't have anything to report there."

    Carr is set to make $8 million in 2015 and count $12.7 million against the salary cap, and frankly, it would seem the Cowboys would probably want to slash those numbers in half if they're even going to have a discussion. Whether that's something Carr wants to do is still unknown, but if he declines a paycut on middle ground, the Cowboys would cut him loose and then he'd be at the mercy of the open market for a 29-year-old corner who didn't have an interception last year.
