The Dallas Cowboys have hoped they could convince cornerback Brandon Carr to take a pay cut this offseason.
Carr doesn’t appear to be open to that idea.
According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Carr’s agent, Ben Dogra, said that Carr will not be taking a pay cut with the Cowboys.
With Morris Claiborne sidelined for the offseason and a possible candidate to land on the physically unable to perform list to start the year, the Cowboys could certainly use Carr’s depth and experience on the roster. However, it also makes the argument for Carr to accept a pay cut a bit hollow as well.
Carr is scheduled to make $8 million this season from Dallas. With his refusal to accept a pay cut, it may lead to the Cowboys having to release Carr. The team has less than $5 million in salary cap space currently, per NFLPA records.
