Ravens sign cornerback Carr to four year deal

The Ravens made another addition to their secondary on Thursday afternoon when they signed former cowboys cornerback, Brandon Carr to a four year deal.

The deal itself is only two years at $12 million, but there are options in place that can make it a four year deal at $24 million.

One of the highlights of signing Carr has to be his durability. Since his rookie season in 2008, the veteran cornerback has never missed a start in his career. Over the last three seasons, Carr has posted 167 tackles and 24 pass deflections.

With the release of Shareece Wright earlier in the month and the departure of Lardarius Webb last week, the Ravens were in desperate need of some cornerback depth. Carr is a pleasant addition to a team with a lack of defensive stability.

Looking ahead to the 2017 season there are still plenty of questions and concerns surrounding the Ravens but the secondary is starting to look more secure. When the team signed Tony Jefferson on the first day of free agency, they created a good core for the secondary. Carr along with second-year corner, Tavon Young will help round out that foundation.
