Bio

Brandon Carr is entering his third season as cornerback with the Dallas Cowboys after spending his first four years with the Kansas City Chiefs. Carr, a confident shutdown cornerback, has quietly established himself as one of the better players at his position in the NFC, registering six interceptions over his first two seasons in Dallas. Carr signed a five-year, $50.1 million contract in 2012.

Early Years & College

Carr was born in Flint, Mich., on May 19, 1986. He attended Carman-Ainsworth High where he was named first-team All-Big Nine Conference at defensive back as a senior after collecting two interceptions and 53 tackles. He also starred at wide receiver, hauling in 24 passes for 431 yards and four touchdowns. After graduating, Carr went to Grand Valley State where he took over starting cornerback duties as a sophomore. In 48 games (42 starts), Carr recorded 206 tackles, 11 interceptions and 39 pass deflections.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs selected Carr in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL draft (140th overall). Carr, a huge favorite of then-head coach Herm Edwards, started all 16 games as a rookie, finishing with 73 combined tackles and two interceptions. In four years in Kansas City, Carr racked up eight interceptions, including a career-high four in 2011, while gaining a solid reputation as one of the best cover corners in the NFL.

Dallas Cowboys

Carr cashed in on the success of his breakout 2011 campaign and signed a multi-year deal with Dallas. He has continued to stamp his mark on the league, sniping three interceptions in 2012 and three more in 2013, while running two of those back for touchdowns. Carr has amassed 14 interceptions, 88 pass deflections and 361 combined tackles for his six-year NFL career.
