Brandon Carr is currently the property of the Kansas City Chiefs but he is expected to
turn into a pumpkin become available to the rest of the league on March 13 when free agency starts. And, from what I can tell, Carr is in a good position.
He's a pretty damn good player, which is the most important part of entering free agency. But he's also entering a market that doesn't have a lot of good players at his position. The Titans will let Cortland Finnegan hit the open market so Carr is the No.1 or No. 2 free agent cornerback on the market, depending on where you place Finnegan.
And he's also seeing his name connected to one of the league's richest teams, the Dallas Cowboys. That rarely hurts your negotiating stance, especially when the Cowboys have a legitimate need at cornerback and aren't necessarily being used to drive up the price.
As Rotoworld points out, there are now three reports connecting Carr to the Cowboys. Pro Football Weekly said the Cowboys "covet" Carr, ESPN Dallas indicated the same and ESPN's Adam Schefter said on SportsCenter that the Cowboys are expected to have "heavy interest" in Carr.
Kudos to Carr. He's earned the right to enter free agency and cash in.
