The Cowboys announced defensive back Brandon Carr is among the 15 players they have signed to the practice squad.

Carr, who lives in the Dallas area, visited the Cowboys on Friday.

He has remained a free agent since the Ravens declined the option on Carr’s contract March 18 after three seasons in Baltimore.

In 2012, Carr was one of the most-sought-after cornerbacks on the free agent market, and the Cowboys gave him a five-year, $50.1 million deal on the first day of free agency.

Carr had 49 tackles and two sacks for the Ravens last season, which was his third with the team. He had 101 tackles and six interceptions over his first two seasons with the team.

The Cowboys also signed offensive tackle Issac Alarcon, linebacker Francis Bernard, defensive back Deante Burton, defensive end Ron'Dell Carter, defensive tackle Justin Hamilton, linebacker Ladarius Hamilton, center Marcus Henry, tight end Cole Hikutini, receiver Jon'Vea Johnson, defensive back Luther Kirk, running back Sewo Olonilua, receiver Aaron Parker, defensive back Saivion Smith and defensive back Chris Westry to the practice squad.

  1. Bernard Cleared ! Happy Days he Will be on the active roster by mid season, clearly other teams didn’t watch our training camp and with Wil McClay’s outstanding track record one would of thunk that this kid would have got stolen from us.

  2. @cowboyzcali
    Bernard cleared and they cut Joe Thomas and Sean Lee is going on IR tomorrow, I expect Bernard to be active game 1

    Practice squad rules are different this year due to COVID, you can carry 16, I think 4 can be veterans, and you can protect 6 from being signed off your practice squad (something like that). Anyhow Carr lives in Dallas and signed (you can also move 2 players up for game day) so this is insurance for Jourdan Lewis at the beginning of the season.

  3. A little surprised at the Joe Thomas cut since he backs up Sean Lee, and does it well, and he was a McCarthy guy in GB.

  4. The bigger news to me is veterans with accrued seasons being eligible for the practice squad this year. Carr’s best days are behind him but he is still a smart and possibly more importantly reliable player.
