Cowboys lose two starting cornerbacks in free agency to the Ravens, Jets

Brandon Carr signed a four-year deal with Baltimore, the organization announced.

The Cowboys weren't likely to pay Carr $6 million a year, although the four-year deal is really more of a two-year deal, more in line with what you might pay someone like Carr at his age. The contract is likely to wrap up at two years, $12 million, per Schefter. Presumably, the guarantees won't impact their ability to dump Clairborne after a year if it's a multi-year deal.

The Dallas Cowboys have lost free agent cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr, according to reports by ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Carr holds the longest active streak of consecutive starts among National Football League cornerbacks with 144.

He is expected to travel to Baltimore next week to sign his contract after passing a mandatory physical exam. Finding a cornerback was a top priority for the Ravens this offseason. Over the course of the season, Carr recorded 61 tackles, one interception, and nine passes defended.

This is the second time that Singh would be taking the oath as chief minister having served in that capacity in 2002-2007. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won 20 seats on its debut, emerging as the second largest party in the Punjab Assembly.

The Jets, who ranked 17th in pass defense in 2016, released seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis last week.

But there's a major caveat: Claiborne's injury history.

With Carr departing, the Cowboys secondary continues to take hits.
