Normally, you wouldn’t expect a guy who just months ago signed a $50 million contract to be going unnoticed. But it seems
Just my opinion: Carr’s had the best training camp of any Cowboys player. He’s been exactly what the team thought it was getting when he was made the first priority in free agency. He’s been tough and physical, has a knack for making plays on the ball in the air and has had some outstanding battles with
When the Cowboys signed Carr, I was a little unsure about the move, having not seen him play in a ton of games. I worried he wasn’t one of the game’s best cornerbacks, but instead just one of the best cornerbacks available this offseason.
In short, I thought the Cowboys might’ve been buying another Anthony Henry, the guy they paid big bucks for in 2005. Henry was a pretty good player, but not the difference-maker you’re looking for when you pay a guy like he’s elite. It’s now clear to me Carr will be quite a bit better than Henry.

“He’s terrific,” Sensabaugh said. “He’s able to challenge every throw, challenge every catch. He’s gotten a lot of (pass breakups), a lot of interceptions. He plays the ball well. He’s something special and I can’t wait to get out there in these real games and see what he does. I already know it’s going to be a special year for him. He’s a great addition. He’s one of the pieces of the puzzle that we needed.”
There were plenty of players who stood out throughout camp, but Carr’s play seems to have gone underreported. He’s laid the foundation for a Pro Bowl season.
