Dallas Cowboys summons veteran safety Brandon Carr from practice squad


FRISCO, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys have called on veteran safety Brandon Carr from the practice squad in time for Sunday’s season opener against Los Angeles Rams.

Carr joined the Cowboys on Monday as the team looked to complement their depth in security following the release of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Head coach Mike McCarthy said the team limited Carr’s work during practice on Friday because he was not in training camp.

Carr, 34, said he kept himself in good shape throughout the team and despite not being with the team over the summer. He played some safety last season for the Baltimore Ravens. From 2012 to 2016, he played cornerback with the Cowboys. He did not anticipate difficulty in choosing the Cowboys scheme.

“As you grow up, everything moves together and the only thing that changes is the verb”. “Just have to learn to say the right things.”

By joining the active roster, Carr gets a chance to extend a significant streak. He has started all 192 games in his career, the longest active streak by a defensive player in the NFL. The Cowboys plan to keep Xavier Woods in safety with Darian Thompson.

As for the start streak, Carr said, “I don’t think about the streak until you guys ask me about it. Personally, I just try to figure out a way to get the championship ring. I am doing It’s been 13 years now, and I have no hardware. The streak is fine, but I want to end the game with hardware. ”
