Brandon Carr was the Cowboys’ big-ticket, free-agent signee of the off-season and did little that showed up in the final stats line (no tackles, interceptions or PBUs) in Monday’s 3-0 victory Oakland. But he maintained good coverage in limited action and felt “right at home” in his Cowboys’ debut, which Carr considers a good start in his new surroundings.
“I was wondering how it was going to feel with a new team, new colors, a new coaching staff. But I just felt right at home,” said Carr, who spent the first four seasons of his career with Kansas City before signing a five-year, $50.1 million deal with Dallas in March. “There’s always things you need to work on. But overall, we did pretty well. All of our units came in on defense and did what they had to do. That means keeping points off the board. That’s our goal each week.”
