Source: Cowboys negotiating to keep Brandon Carr

IRVING - The Cowboys are negotiating toward a way to retain cornerback Brandon Carr, hoping to avoid making him a post-June 1 cut, team sources tell FOX Sports Southwest.

The Dallas Cowboys have some difficult financial decisions to make as they want to keep both DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant. Don’t expect the front office to cut their own pay any time soon, so it will fall on the players to make sacrifices. In that spirit, the Cowboys are pushing for cornerback Brandon Carr to take a paycut: Brandon Carr and Cowboys Discuss Paycut

Could Charles Tillman Be Re-Uniting with Rod Marinelli?

The Cowboys are expected to be very busy in these few weeks leading up to free agency, and one of their main negotiations will be that of Brandon Carr’s bloated contract.

Could This Be Brandon Carr’s Last Season in Dallas?

What may $7.5 million per season buy an NFL football team? An average cornerback with a propensity for failing to intercept passes. Well, at least that may be what the Dallas Cowboys are thinking after signing Brandon Carr to such a large contract. In 2012, Carr signed a five-year deal worth $50 million.

Dallas Cowboys: What we learned from the most important preseason game

Saturday night marked the final night of preseason action for most of the Dallas Cowboys starters. The final game against the Broncos on Thursday, August 28, will be handled by those still jostling for a position on the 53-man roster and several veterans who still need to shake some rust off  (i.e. Brandon Carr, Rolando McClain). The Cowboys sank to 0-3 in preseason play after falling...

When the Dallas Cowboys signed Brandon Carr to a five-year, $50.1 million contract prior to the start of the 2012 season, they thought he would be a shutdown corner like Sherman has been with the Seattle Seahawks.  That obviously hasn’t...
