Sports Minute: Veteran DB Carr returns to Cowboys on their practice squad
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Veteran defensive back Brandon Carr has returned to the Dallas Cowboys as a member of their practice squad after starting every game the past 12 NFL seasons.
Carr, who played the past three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, was among 14 players the Cowboys signed to their practice squad Sunday.
Before the Ravens, the 34-year-old defensive back Carr played five seasons for Dallas from 2012-16, after beginning his career with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2008-11. He has 702 tackles and 21 interceptions in 192 games, starting all 16 games every season he has played in the NFL.
Practice squads were expanded from 10 to 16 players this season, with up to six of those able to have any number of accrued seasons and able to make $12,000 a week. Two practice squad players each week can be promoted to the 53-man active roster and then move back to the practice squad the following week without going through waivers.
