Carr racked up a team-high seven tackles in Thursday's win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran corner has picked up 13 tackles over the last two weeks after notching just 15 tackles through his first six outings. Carr also leads the team with three interceptions and is tied with Jimmy Smith for the team-lead in passes defensed with seven. He's a durable corner who is a safe bet to be on the field for the vast majority of Baltimore's defensive plays on a weekly basis, but his tackle numbers won't always be as good as they were Thursday.

Carr had six tackles (five solo) and an interception in Sunday's matchup with the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Carr is one interception from reaching his career high of four interceptions, and it's just seven games into the season. The six tackles he added Sunday were a season high as well, since he normally hovers around three tackles per game. His low tackle counts hurts his IDP value, but Carr is a solid option for daily leagues against risk-taking or inexperienced quarterbacks.

Carr had an interception, four passes defensed, and three tackles in Sunday's win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has looked impressive through his first two games in Baltimore with two interceptions thus far. According to Pro Football Focus, Carr was targeted 10 times Sunday and allowed just three receptions for 37 yards. Carr is locked into the starting role opposite Jimmy Smith and is clearly playing well enough to limit Baltimore's need to lean on rookie Marlon Humphrey.

Carr signed a four-year deal with the Ravens on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Ravens were rumored to have interest in Morris Claiborne, who started across from Carr in the Dallas secondary for much of last season. The 30-year-old corner has started all 16 games in each of his nine NFL seasons, and while his availability has been the model of consistency, the quality of his play has been a different story. He was often exploited by No. 1 wideouts during his five-year tenure in Dallas, with his playmaking ability (one interception over the last three seasons) also leaving something to be desired. However, he should provide an upgrade in Baltimore, where the No. 2 and 3 cornerback spots are an annual weakness. Carr should draw easier matchups with his new team, as the other projected starters in the secondary -- CB Jimmy Smith and safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson -- are all stellar.

Carr finished the regular season with 61 tackles and nine passes defended in 16 games, including his first INT since 2013.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old has never missed a game in his NFL career, so while he doesn't make many impact plays, his reliability does have value. Carr is a free agent this offseason, but could return to the Cowboys if they aren't able to find an upgrade on the open market.

Carr has been lining up on the right side of the defense during OTAs, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

He played on the right side in Kansas City, but Mo Claiborne's lengthy injury history has forced Carr to line up on the left for most of his tenure in Dallas, with inconsistent (at best) results. Claiborne has actually been healthy so far this offseason though, so the team will try to ease Carr back into the spot where he's most comfortable. Don't expect this to have a big impact on Carr's IDP value if it lasts, but it could help the Cowboys' overall secondary play.

Carr agreed to a pay cut for the 2016 season, freeing up over $3.5 million in cap space for the Cowboys, The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was set to make $9.1 million in the final year of the contract he signed with the Cowboys back in 2012, but with no guaranteed money left on the deal Carr could have been simply cut after June 1. The new deal keeps Carr in Dallas with a base salary of $4.25 million, which could increase to $6 million after bonuses.

Carr finished the 2015 season with a career-high 76 tackles, but failed to intercept a pass for the season straight season.

EDGE Analysis

The tackles gave him a little IDP value in deep formats, but the veteran cornerback has one more season left on his contract and his declining performance could result in Carr being a cap casualty in the offseason. The Cowboys have depth issues at DB, however, so depending on how they address the position in the draft, Carr could end up sticking around for one more year in Dallas.

Carr (hand) was back at practice Tuesday and is expected to be in the lineup for Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings, DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys need Carr to be at 100 percent by Week 1 with Orlando Scandrick now lost for the season with a torn ACL, so it's encouraging that he's back on the field so quickly after hand surgery. Expect Carr to start at cornerback opposite Mo Claiborne when the regular season begins.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr underwent successful surgery Monday to repair a broken bone in his right hand, according to the Dallas Morning News. Carr sustained the injury during Saturday's practice and flew back to Dallas for the procedure. The injury is not believed to be serious, as former teammate DeMarco Murray played in a game just five days after suffering a similar issue last season, and the largest obstacle blocking Carr's return to practice is how quickly the incision heals. “We don’t think it’s serious,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Saturday. “The biggest thing with this is getting the surgery done correctly, which we’re confident is going to happen, and then handling the incision and see what he’s capable of doing.” Carr is unlikely to participate in Dallas' preseason game against the San Diego Chargers on Thursday, but his availability for the start of the regular season is not believed to be in jeopardy.
