We haven’t heard much about Chris Carr since the Ravens sent him packing at the start of the month, but there’s starting to be some interest in the former Ravens cornerback.
Carr has lined up a couple of visits with teams looking for help at cornerback. Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports that Carr has visited with the Chiefs and that he’s making his way to the Vikings to speak to them as well. Carr played just nine games for the Ravens last year because of a back injury and the ascension of Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith made him expendable.
That back injury makes him a natural fit for the Vikings this offseason. They’ve signed guard Geoff Schwartz and tight end John Carlson as free agents, neither of whom played a down during the 2011 season. At corner the Vikings currently have Antoine Winfield, although he is getting older and coming off his own injury problems, and a lot of question marks. Carr would definitely find playing time in Minnesota.
The Chiefs have Brandon Flowers and they signed Stanford Routt after he was let go by Oakland, but there’s room for depth at the position in Kansas City. Javier Arenas is still around and the Chiefs could still re-sign Travis Daniels, who is currently an unrestricted free agent.
