Since the initial Free Agency Frenzy, the Ravens have been linked to cornerback Morris Claibourne. The Ravens reportedly offered Claibourne $5 million, but he was looking for a deal where he could get $7.5 million. Baltimore ultimately passed on Claibourne, and instead agreed to terms with the other Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr. According to reports, Carr’s deal is for four years.
Carr is a very good and very consistent cornerback. He has started every game, 144, in his 9 year career. He previously played for the Chiefs and previously mentioned Cowboys, after being drafted in the 5th round in 2008. In his career, Carr has 111 pass defenses, and 15 interceptions. Bringing him to Baltimore will add much needed depth to a leaky secondary. Jimmy Smith and Tavon Young are more than capable cornerbacks, but they cannot do it all alone. Carr will bring in help, and help keep the Ravens defense consistent.
