NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Carr has accepted a pay cut, according to a source informed of the move. The eight-year veteran cornerback is now due approximately $5.5 million in base salary in 2016. Carr had been scheduled to earn a base salary of $9.1 million in the final year of his contract.
Carr was expected to be an anchor for the Dallas secondary when he signed a $50 million deal prior to the 2012 season, but he hasn't had an interception in his last two seasons and was widely speculated as a candidate for release this offseason. He remains with a shaky secondary that also includes Orlando Scandrick and Morris Claiborne.
