According to Pro Football Weekly's report, CB Brandon Carr is expected to be re-signed as well. Big shocker, right?
It's reassuring to hear that the Chiefs aren't monkeying around with core players like Carr. I'd argue that he was even more essential in the last quarter of the season than teammate Brandon Flowers was. Obviously, the Chiefs see Carr's value.
It remains to be seen if "re-signed" means long-term deal. Last week, Joel mentioned that the new Collective Bargaining Agreement would presumably have restricted free agency, which Carr would fall under. So even absent a long-term deal, the Chiefs will control his rights in 2011.
And before you ask, CB Brandon Flowers, who like Carr was drafted in 2008, signed a four-year deal instead of a three-year deal as a rookie. That's why we're not talking about Flowers' contract being up for renewal.
