FRISCO, Texas – Dallas Cowboys have called up veteran defender Brandon Carr from the training team in time for Sunday’s season opener against the Los Angeles Rams.
Carr joined the Cowboys on Monday as the team seeks to replenish their safety depths following the release of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that the team had restricted Carr’s work during training because he was not in training camp.
Carr, 34, said he was in good shape, although he had not been with the team all season and summer. He played some security last season for the Baltimore Ravens. From 2012 to 2016 he played cornerback with the Cowboys. He didn’t expect to have a hard time taking the cowboy scheme.
“With age, everything is done together and the only thing that changes is the word,” he said. “You just have to learn to say the right things.”
By being added to the active list, Carr has a chance to extend a significant series. He started all 192 games in his career, the longest active series of a defender in the NFL. The Cowboys planned to pair Xavier Woods with Darian Thompson in a safe place.
As for the starting series, Carr said: “I don’t think about the series until you ask me about it. Personally, I’m so absorbed in trying to find a way to get a championship ring. I play, it’s going to be 13 years and I don’t have any The series is fine, but I want to finish this game with hardware. “
