Brandon Carr hasn’t exactly lived up to the hype after signing a five-year/$50 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Given all the Cowboys’ cap issues, is it possible that Dallas could dump Carr after 2014 and eat $20 million in dead money? Todd Archer of ESPN thinks the answer is yes.
If Carr plays the way they thought he would play when he signed in 2012, then he’ll be back and they can restructure his contract. If he plays just OK, then I think this could be it for him. But I don’t think it would have anything to do with B.W. Webb or Terrance Mitchell. Webb and Mitchell are not even locks to make the 2014 roster. Claiborne could be entering his final year in 2015, so I don’t think he’ll be part of the process either. Scandrick will be here, especially after his deal was extended last year. The Cowboys need Carr to have a bounce back year. He has to show the coaches he can play man and be a solid tackler. The Cowboys didn’t restructure his contract this offseason in part because it would have made it harder to part ways with him after 2014. He’s under the microscope, without a doubt.
Wow. Another amazing front office move by the Cowboys. Keep accumulating those mindlessly huge contracts, Jerry Jones, and keep pushing that dead money forward.
The next time Jerry thinks about going in for more work on his face, he should consider spending the money on a Capologist instead.
