According to Pro Football Weekly, the Cowboys "covet" free agent CB Brandon Carr and are expected to "go all in for him" when the market opens.
Carr is a big, physical corner with experience in both man and zone schemes, and he'd be a sizable upgrade on Terence Newman at left cornerback. The Cowboys can release Newman after March 13 and "designate" him a post-June 1 cut, saving over $6 million in cap space. Carr will command a pretty penny, but the secondary was Dallas' most glaring weakness for much of last season. Related: Cowboys

He's likely to be coveted by many teams. Why don't we franchise him and actively shop him? Imagine the haul a guy like Carr could bring in.

if he even has a decent season in a media darling market like Dallas under a Rob Ryan defense he will easily make the Pro Bowl and become recognized probably more so than Flowers on the Chiefs

You're tying up less than half that in guaranteed money. Flowers got 22 million guaranteed.

I believe that Flowers has reached his ceiling, while Carr is still ascending.

When it's all said and done, with good coaching Carr will be the better cover corner, and was for the last half of last year.

Carr was on the number 1 wr about 15% of the time lets see him on the number 1 100% of the time before we judge.

I'm 100% ok with letting a starting corner walk IF we spend his money on Peyton Manning.

Also, Pioli has been working on Re-signing Bowe for a year now.

Remember when the supposed blow up between Hey and Bowe happened and the report was that Bowe went to Pioli and Pioli said to lay off the players he is trying to re-sign...

I wonder if Bowe is waiting to see what hallens at QB, too.

I'm sure he and Tony G had many conversations about quarterbacks and aykff wins/superbowls.

It stinks but it's the reality of things. No team ever keeps 100% of its guys. I'm sure Carr's agent knew what he'd get in the open market.

The positive is... you don't build teams around CB's. You just don't. A legitimate Super Bowl defense is not built around that position.

Amazing how its always the teams fault if we don't resign somebody even though we haven't let 1 top tier FA leave in years and years.

Dallas is going to over pay Carr and plenty of teams would be willing to give Bowe huge $. We shouldnt pay both of them insane money when we still have other holes to fill.

I dont think Bowe or Carr ever had any intentions of signing an extension and were going to push for FA or the tag the whole time.

But that is Pioli's fault. OK.

Overpay Bowe. I don't give a rat's ass. We have a unique opportunity to hold the cards and drive up the price for a very good, proven corner. I'm curious as to what other people think would be reasonable compensation for a guy like that.

That is the only big difference in my opinion. Over the length of the contract Routt signed, not a big deal.

We simply can't have 2 high paid CB's and a top tier Safety over a very large stretch of time.

We still have Albert to pay as well as a need for several more OL and a NT.

Oh yea, and a stud QB worth paying some $ to.

1) Carr was still improving as a #2 corner. Those days are over, time to face the big boys.

2) if somebody else comes in here and says something like "Carr isn't a #2 corner, teams just put their best receiver on flowers because he is an easier matchup" my head might just explode. The two were targeted equally even though Flowers faced the top guy week in and week out.

3) paying 12 million per year, or even 11 is not smart business. Especially for a team that doesn't have a franchise quarterback.

4) Carrs play improved a lot once Romeo started dialing up some blitzes and applying more pressure. The two are connected and further shows that a good pass rush is far more important that having overspent in the secondary. Just ask the eagles.

You may not believe #2, but isn't us that said that, it was Ryan Fitzpatrick that said that when discussing how the Bills planned to attack the Cheifs secondary.

That's a plan devised by Chan Gailey, and Gailey is one of the best offensive minds in football.

It seems to me that Flowers had one of his worst games of the season against the Bills.

Carr is gone, I've accepted that.
And Routt is not nearly the dropoff that others believe.

But I'm not going to sit here and downplay how good Carr is, or was, simply because he's not likely going to be a Chief any longer any more than I was going to overvalue what Tony Gonzales was simply because he was a Chief.

Before Flowers got hurt, he was 2nd only to Revis as a CB in this league, and flowers is head, and shoulders ahead of Carr in run support. I'd put anything on flowers having the better season next year.
I don't see him topped out at all. Carr was better for the last half of last season, but he still was ranked lower in Burn rate.
Losing Carr sucks, but we got the better corner for less money.

The smart move is to sign Bowe as his value on the market is less in comparison to Carr. With us having Routt, Carr is more expendable for us, but of more value to other teams like the Cowboys. We could try a sign and trade with Dallas though if that is possible. I would then trade Carr to Dallas (maybe a first this year and second next year). Then give Stl our high 1st and Dallas's high 1st. Then give them our second this year and next along with our 2013 1st and Dallas's 2013 2nd for the #2 pick. STL cleans up with two firsts this year (both in top 15), two 2nds this year and two 1sts and 2nds next year as well. We get the #2 pick this year and then our draft from round 3 on. Then we get rounds 2 on next year, so we lose very few picks.

Tag Carr and let Bowe walk

We then have a rather large pool of WR's to look at in FA. Maybe Bowe will even come back if he doesn't get the Larry Fitzgerald money he's apparently looking for.

The tag is about getting draft picks back for a guy who might leave imo.

a top CB is worth more in FA this year and will get us more in return.

Exactly, Carr is far more valuable to other teams than he is to us, especially now that we have Routt. That is why we tag him and try to get a reasonable return for him. I would settle for Dallas's #1 this year and #2 next year. They would be far more prone to give that up than multiple #1 picks for him.

We've got the money to sign Bowe though so I'd rather keep him. He won't get a Fitz contract IMO and his agent has to know this. The next week or so is going to be pretty interesting.

I can't remember exactly, but wasn't there something written into the new cba to prevent teams from tagging a player just to hold him hostage for draft picks? Since we signed Routt, it could be argued that we are not acting in good faith to try to retain him.

I wouldn't mind this scenario at all. I think it would be easier to get another team to give up a draft pick for him than for Bowe. Other quality receivers should be available that wouldn't cost a draft pick so I don't think we'd be as successful trading him. Putting us in play for RGIII would be worth losing a few picks and Carr.

LOL at the tag and trade carr. Chiefs tag him and he doesn't sign the deal till after the draft you are ****ed.

oh go fuck yourself, you irritating little prick

you can always make up some way for shit to go wrong ... it doesn't mean it will.

we'd have a full month to work on the tag/trade

You don't make it to where you can't deal the guy. It would also be in Carrs best interest to seek a trade and a long term deal instead of just trying to screw the Chiefs because they put the tag on him. That just seems silly.

Before Flowers got hurt, he was 2nd only to Revis as a CB in this league, and flowers is head, and shoulders ahead of Carr in run support. I'd put anything on flowers having the better season next year.
I don't see him topped out at all. Carr was better for the last half of last season, but he still was ranked lower in Burn rate.
Losing Carr sucks, but we got the better corner for less money.

What is worse? Having players that nobody wants? Or, having too many players you can no longer afford because they're so good?

I would be very sad if we lose Carr. I would hate it even more if he went to an AFCW team. My next level of hate would be the Cowgirls, though. Then, maybe the Steelers and after that, the Patriots.

I don't mind losing players to other teams because we can't pay them, but I think good teams get draft picks for those players when they leave. It seems like we're going to let Carr go and use our franchise tag to save a few million dollars in negotiations with Bowe.

Carr strikes me as a guy who has a good head on his shoulders. He'll view this as a business decision first and foremost - which is likely why he hasn't re-upped with the Chiefs, yet.

If he's smart (and I believe him to be), he'll play for the team that offers him the most cash up front. The only leverage that Dr. Evil has is the franchise tag and that's why the negotiations with Bowe are probably intense right about now.

It's kind of non-traditional for us, though, Mr. prhom (did I spell that right?). We normally have like maybe 2 or 3 really good, young players and a bunch of mediocre guys. As we improve, it will get a little more difficult to pay full market price for everybody we'd like to keep. I guess good teams face that problem all the time ... I'm not very used to it, though.

He'd be dumb not to treat this as a business deal. He's very early in his career and history should tell him that he's not going to win a championship or get paid ridiculous money playing for KC. Playing on the same team as friends and for a coach you like only go so far.

It seems like we're going to let Carr go and use our franchise tag to save a few million dollars in negotiations with Bowe.This statement is riddled with full retard. You can't expect to get compensation on every guy that reaches free agency because he is a good player. I understand wanting to, but this philosophy is a first class ticket to cap hell. You would have to sign every guy to an extension before they reach free agency. The "spirit" of the franchise tag is not to keep a player held hostage from free agency so a team can try and get compensation for him. The NFLPA would NEVER agree to a system like that. Carr has earned the right to get top dollar for his services. If he wants to make the best business decision for himself (even if that means leaving KC) all we can do is wish him well and thank him for his service.

Bowe is more valuable to this franchise than Brandon Carr........especially after signing Routt. Carr is a fringe top 10 player at his position and Bowe had 1159 receiving yards with Matt Cassel, Tyler Palko, and Kyle Orton throwing him the fucking ball!!

Keeping the franchise tag powder dry is the smart thing to do, though. You have to give it up for Pioli for that. Right now, neither Bowe nor Carr know who might get the tag. If either one of their agents blinks, it's all over and we can keep them both. That is my hope, anyhow.

The way I look at it, if Bowe is truly a #1 receiver (in Pioli's squinty eyes), we would have to pay him - or somebody very much like him - #1 money. That's just a given in the league. Which means, of course, that we should be able to strike a reasonable deal (assuming that Bowe even wants to stay with the Chiefs), then use the tag on Carr. If we can't, Routt is our hole card.

The question right now is whether or not Bowe wants to continue playing with a quarterback the caliber of Cassel ... and that's a real good question.

I realize that you can't always get that value, but in this case we could have and may still. The point here is that Bowe is worth more to us than anyone else, and we should never have to use the tag on him. Just come to an agreement and make the deal. Put the tag on Carr because we can't keep him and get a pick for losing him. I'm not saying use the tag on Carr and cut Bowe. That would be full retard.

You can call the post retarded or offer up some type of factual information to back up your claim I am wrong.

You are entitled to your opinion but so am I and I know what I saw this year and distinctly remember seeing things that made me wonder what was up with his play.

Did I say he sucked and I didn't want him back? Did I say he was a bad CB? No I said I think he took a step back from 2010 and well there is statistical analysis to back it up.

But just call it a retarded post because you are so objective.

Funny thing is look back at the beginning of the season on threads here, and you would see people with the same concerns.

This is the whole reason for Routt. If KC gets into a bidding war with Dallas, he'll end up the highest paid CB in the league. Dallas has been eyeing him all offseason like that seedy guy checking out your girl.

I won't be too sad to see Carr leave. I love him as a player, but Routt is pretty good in press coverage. I'm expecting our pass rush to be pretty effective this coming season between Hali and Houston (who won't be splitting valuable snaps with Studebaker).

I only hope that Lewis is actually pretty decent and he wasn't just a product of Carr being such a beast. If Kendrick is as good as I think he is (which is a pretty good center fielder), we won't really see the drop off from Carr to Routt. If all else fails, Eric Berry will come back to ease my fears...

I think we'll see a drop-off in that position. I have a hard time believing that Routt will play as well or as consistently as Carr will this season. I've seen nothing but improvement in Carr since he came on board. Plus, he's a warrior. He will play through pain.

However, your points regarding Houston, Lewis, and Berry are well taken, Mr. ThaVirus. I agree with you. Given those changes, it's perfectly reasonable to anticipate overall improvement in the secondary due to a more effective rush and better safety play.

I think with Carr gone and Routt replacing him and Berry being back our secondary will be overall much improved over this year. Berry changes EVERYTHING and this will be a non-topic come game 1. We'll see Carr wasn't all that and given our many other defencies giving him more than Routt money doesn't make any sense for this team going forward.

The unfortunate thing is it appears Routt's contract is structered in a way that it could be terminated after a single year and be both cheap and cap friendly.

If the Chiefs were able to tag Carr, they would be in a solid position to get 1 year with both CBs before making a decision on which to keep.

It could have come together nicely if they were able to get Bowe signed.

Still coming to terms that Carr isn't going to be in KC. At least we didn't get completely dicked over and left at the altar thanks to the signing of Routt. Makes me want to puke that Carr will only now be getting the deserved attention because he has the pentagram on the side of his helmet instead of an arrowhead....no matter, can't control the media fellating the Cowboys every chance they get.

From here on, I'll take whatever we get out of this mess as gravy. If Pioli manages to sign Bowe, tag Carr, and then trade him for some huge picks....that'll be an awesome, if unexpected, move. For me though, Carr is gone, Routt's in, and my focus has shifted to fixing the abortion that is the offense. I suppose the good news is this: tagging Bowe only helps our offense.
