Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr says he's getting better at switch in sides

Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr said he got better during the first week of OTAs at the switch from the right side to the left side.

“It is different. I’m not going to say that it’s not,” he said after Wednesday’s practice during the three-day OTA session this week at Valley Ranch. “Just from the standpoint of your muscle memory on the right side, it’s different. The mechanics and things like that. But this was Day 2. Today was better than yesterday, so hopefully tomorrow will be better than today.”

Carr was the Cowboys’ top free-agent acquisition. He signed a five-year deal worth $50.1 million.

He said the contract hasn’t changed him.

“I’m going to continue being the same person I have always been,” he said. “I don’t feel like I have to change. Of course, on the field I have to elevate my game, take it to the next level. That was already my goal before I signed with the Cowboys. As far as me being a person, I’m going to be the same person. I’m going to talk to you guys the same way, stay boring.”

He laughed when he said that, drawing smiles from the reporters assembled around him in the locker room.

“No pressure,” he said. “Continue to go out there, have fun. I’ve been playing this game since the fourth grade, so I’m going to continue to do what I’ve been doing.”

Is he comfortable with the spotlight? He does play for the Dallas Cowboys now, after all.

“I’m comfortable with it,” he said. “I’ve grown into it. Hopefully it’ll be a good spotlight in the years to come. That doesn’t matter. When I’m out there playing, I’m not thinking about who’s looking at me or what they’re saying about me. I’m out there with my teammates. I’m playing for them.”

According to him his tax plan will help the middle class but it is not meant to put money into people's pockets. Like most of the other Republican presidential candidates, he aims to abolish Obama Care.

@Glenn Guillory.....YOU BRING UP DOUG FREE AND ANTHONY SPENCER AS YOU COMEBACK. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT A CORNERBACK WITH SKINS ON THE WALL. NOT A 1ST ROUND BUST LIKE SPENCER. AND FREE HAD A BAD YEAR BUT A YEAR AND HALF OF SOLID PLAY BEFORE THAT. FREE LOST ALOT OF HELP INSIDE LAST YEAR BUT WAS GREAT THE YEAR BEFORE THAT.

KILL_VICK_666....It's decisions like that by Jerry and his coaching staff that have hurt this team in the past and is still hurting us. Signing guys who play one position and put them in another position where they struggle. Just look at Doug Free and Anthony Spencer. Neither one of those guys are the players we hoped they'd be with the money Jerry is paying those two. Now..who's the 'ignorant' one?...

@Glenn Guillory. If hes great he should be able to switch sides. Receivers switch from left to right or to the slot. but to say jerry made that call is ignorant.

Jerry gives this guy a $50 million contract and makes him play the side of the field he probably hasn't played since high school. We have some brilliant minds over at Valley Ranch. Guaratee you Carr will be back on HIS side of the field by training camp.
