When Time's Right, Carr Not Going To Shy Away From Leadership Role

CB Brandon Carr is in Dallas, working out with his new team

The Cowboys’ prized free agent pick-up of the 2012 offseason, Brandon Carr was surprised when he arrived in Dallas, to see that the majority of the team stays in town for offseason workouts. After spending four years with the Kansas City Chiefs, Carr says this isn’t the norm in the NFL.

"I was just surprised coming into this whole process of being a free agent and meeting with the Cowboys that a lot of the guys stay here and workout," Carr said, per the Dallas Morning News. "That's something you don't really see with a lot of teams, guys staying for the off-season when they could be out traveling to other cities and other states. The guys are here and getting it in."

Speaking outside of an NFL Play 60 event in North Dallas on Sunday, Carr was also asked about the question of leadership--a subject that has been on the minds of many fans since Jason Hatcher told a local radio show that he wasn’t sure who the leaders in the Cowboys locker room were.

"It's still early on, but at some point it's going to call for me to step up and take that challenge," Carr said. "I'm not going to shy away from the situation or the responsibility. I like to lead by example, first and foremost. That's why I'm here, showing the guys I'm ready to work and as eager as them to get this sixth ring. As far as a leadership role, we have a lot of outstanding guys in place."
