Found March 14, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Cornerback Brandon Carr has agreed to a five-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys worth $50.1M, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Fantasy Spin: Carr was the most sought after cornerback on the free agent market behind Cortland Finnegan, and Dallas should be thrilled they were able to reel him in after fielding a porous secondary in 2011. And releasing declining 33-year-old vet Terence Newman earlier in the week should prove to be the right call. The Cowboys also signed fullback Lawrence Vickers today, plus favorably addressed their need for a backup quarterback by adding Kyle Orton.
