Brandon Carr Contract with Dallas Cowboys not That Big of a Deal
Cowboy's fans, two words: calm down. The recent signing of Brandon Carr to the Dallas Cowboys is not that big of a deal. Carr was / still is an AVERAGE player at BEST. His rating in the free agency market was WAY overstated, and he is just not that great of a player. The fact that the Cowboys actually paid 50.1 million dollars for this average guy player is laughable! Brandon Carr has only had 8 interceptions in his ENTIRE CAREER with The Kansas City Chiefs, people. This is the most ridiculous NFL free agency deal since the Chiefs signed lackluster quarterback Matt Cassel for 48 million just because he had ONE good season with a Super Bowl bound New England Patriots that my grandma could have thrown successfully behind, and the fact that the Denver Broncos showed an interest in him.
The Dallas Cowboys signing Brandon Carr will prove to be a complete bust in the coming years, trust us, we here in Kansas City have been watching him play for years and have seen NOTHING that would show him to be a superstar talent in any way shape or form. 8 interceptions in his ENTIRE career? Yeah, that's worth 50 million dollars, any day. After the smoke clears from this ridiculous contract signing, you will not be hearing much from Brandon Carr. Dallas is a team that is notorious for having players with "great potential" that just never seem to get the job done, and the signing of Brandon Carr fits perfectly with that game plan.
We certainly will not miss Brandon Carr here in Kansas City, and Dallas has to be having some serious buyer's remorse right about now. Just because Carr was the only defensive back in free agency that had ever played the game of football doesn't mean that you have to throw 50 million dollars at him. But, on the other hand, congratulations to his agent, who got an incredible amount of money for one of the most average players in the league. In other news, Kyle Orton signs with the Dallas Cowboys as well. Who cares.
