One of the league's highest paid corners, Carr is scheduled to make $8 million this year in a package that will count as $12.7 million against the team's salary cap. Earlier in the offseason, the Cowboys and Carr's agents were in talks about a potential restructuring that would have cut the total salary and cap hit.
Carr started all 16 games in the secondary for Dallas last season, but he did not have an interception and some observers thought he took a step back in coverage. Carr has 14 interceptions in seven years in the NFL and had been working at extra drills after practice during the team's early sessions in Oxnard.
Here are some other injury updates from Saturday we are tracking:
- Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was held out of practice Saturday with a hamstring tweak, which he and the team insisted was minor. Bryant is not expected to participate in tomorrow's Blue-White scrimmage. His absence is a chance for undrafted rookie Lucky Whitehead, in competition for the fifth-receiver spot, to run with the starters. In other Dallas news, defensive end Ken Boatright is being released from the hospital, but there's no timetable for his return yet.
