Carr is now 30 years old, and is coming off a season where Pro Football Focus ranked him as the number 52 overall cornerback in the NFL.

The Ravens made another move to bolster the secondary, signing former Cowboys corner Brandon Carr.

"This is a good football player", general manager Ozzie Newsome said. Schefter believes that he will only be in Baltimore for two years. He played four years in Kansas City before signing with Dallas. Presumably, the guarantees won't impact their ability to dump Clairborne after a year if it's a multi-year deal.

While appearing in all 16 regular season games for an impressive Cowboys team in 2016-2017, Carr produced 61 total tackles alongside one interception. In Baltimore, Carr will likely start opposite Jimmy Smith. Carr's consistent availability was likely one of the most appealing factors to the Ravens.

A week after officially releasing Darrelle Revis, the Jets have found themselves a new cornerback. Safeties Barry Church (Jacksonville) and J.J. Wilcox (Tampa Bay) have also signed elsewhere, and fellow cornerback Morris Claiborne is also receiving interest from other teams.

While he played well in limited time in 2016, injuries have derailed Claiborne's career to this point.
