Carr's agent, Ben Dogra, says his client won't restructure his contract to take a pay cut, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Carr himself wouldn't discuss the situation, so this could simply be posturing on Dogra's part. The Cowboys selection of cornerback Byron Jones 27th overall in the draft, however, means that Carr may well have to accept a restructure if he wants to avoid being a post-June 1 cut.

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer believes 2014 could be CB Brandon Carr's last season in Dallas.

"If Carr plays the way they thought he would play when he signed in 2012, then he'll be back and they can restructure his contract," said Archer. "If he plays just OK, then I think this could be it for him." Carr was dreadful in 2013, but he was uncomfortable playing the zone coverage ex-Cowboys DC Monte Kiffin utilized. New DC Rod Marinelli will employ much more of Carr's preferred man coverage this season, but Carr has never been an elite cornerback. It is doubtful that changes now. Dallas will likely be moving on after this season.

Cowboys LCB Brandon Carr shed ten pounds this offseason and claims he's in "the best shape of his life."

"I've been playing this game for six years now, and I'm just ready to make that jump and become that shutdown corner," he Carr. Last year, Carr allowed the third most receptions (62) among NFL cornerbacks, per STATS Inc. Pro Football Focus graded him 74th among 110 qualifying corners in coverage. In fairness to Carr, he was too often asked to play zone under ex-Cowboys DC Monte Kiffin. He expects Dallas to use more man concepts under new DC Rod Marinelli.

The Cowboys are expected to restructure CB Brandon Carr's contract once again this offseason.

Carr currently carries a $12.217 million cap number for 2014, an untenable number for a team roughly $25 million over the projected cap. So they'll kick Carr's contract down the road again, giving them some relief this year but making it harder to cut him down the line. The former Chief was one of the reasons the Cowboys had the league's worst defense this season as he graded out 74th among 110 qualifying corners in Pro Football Focus' grades. Jason Witten, Tony Romo, Sean Lee and DeMarcus Ware will also likely have their deals restructured.
