Expiring contracts and a possible retirement clouding the future of Dallas secondary

Fresh off a disappointing 34-31 loss to Green Bay, Jerry Jones and the Dallas front office will have their hands full this off season revamping a secondary that allowed 356 yards and two scores to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers.

Veteran cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne played under expiring contracts this season and enter 2017 as free agents, with the former allegedly considering retirement as one option.

“I just put it all out there on the table. We’ll see how my body feels,” Carr said in a quote on Dallasnews.com. “I feel great this year, like my first year here. I didn’t have too many nagging injuries. I could get up and actually walk in the morning. This year was one of the better years here for my body”

“I’ve been thinking about it sometime,” continued Carr. “Then I think about what am I going to do. Don’t make too much of it. I’m probably just hungry right now, get some food in me, might feel better, get some of Jerry’s macaroni and cheese or something.”

Although the Cowboys fell in disappointing fashion and the secondary allowed Rodgers to pick them apart, Claiborne was ranked 9th among all qualifying cornerbacks at the midpoint of the season by ProFootballFocus.com. Carr placed 18th on the list after a slow start to the season.

A nine-year veteran from Grand Valley State, Carr has 15 career interceptions, 110 pass defenses, and 552 tackles in 144 career games.
