Uncapped Season Will Likely Cost Chiefs CB Brandon Carr Over $250,000

If you're Chiefs CB Brandon Carr, then you probably want the NFL's salary cap to return. One of the realities of the cap-less year is the disappearance of the league's performance-based pay program. This helps fill the pay void for players like Carr who were drafted late (with a small contract) but played a lot of snaps.

Carr, who has started 32 straight game to start his career, received over $260,000 in each of the last two years under the system.

I think we can safely assume Carr will be the starter again this season and, if healthy, play the entire season.

Without the performance-based pay system, Carr won't receive that money in 2010.

That said, a lot of players have their best season in a contract year. He'll be entering his third year in the league so it's reasonable to expect a leap from him in 2010, which would make the Chiefs decision on his future a little easier.

Carr signed a three-year, $1.36 million deal as a rookie. The fifth round pick is entering the final year of that contract earning a base of $470,000 in 2010.
