Cowboys DC Rob Ryan says LCB Brandon Carr will be first in line to shadow No. 1 receivers if Dallas employs that strategy in 2012.
"If we need to shut somebody down, or put him on a bigger guy, I'm sure Brandon will be up to the challenge," said Ryan. Ryan called Carr "actually better" than he expected, and characterized him as a "special" cover guy. "Just because he shuts down everybody," Ryan said. "He can cover anybody. He's got long arms, great length and he's a great person who works his tail off."
