Dallas Cowboys Free Agents: Cowboys Are Cornering the Market on Former Fifth-Round Picks

Brandon Carr is the new cornerback for the Dallas Cowboys. This post is not a complaint about the Dallas Cowboys free agents signed so far. They generally make sense and have filled some needs on both sides of the ball. The money involved is what does not make quite as much sense.

Cowboys Reel in Carr

Cornerback Brandon Carr has agreed to a five-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys worth $50.1M, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
