IRVING, Texas – Brandon Carr spent the first four years of his career in Kansas City. He makes his first return to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
“I don’t know how it’s going to feel,” Carr said. “I haven’t been back to Kansas City since I left to come here after the free agency process. I may have some goose bumps and chills going in there. But it’s a business trip. I’m going here with the Cowboys. We’re going to take care of business. This is game two, another step for us hopefully in the right direction. It’s important to win on the road and it’s going to be a battle for us both with their stadium, the Arrowhead fans can get after it pretty good and their ballclub is playing pretty good right now, so we have our hands full.”
The Cowboys signed Carr to a $50.1 million deal that included $26.5 million in guaranteed money that could change his family for generations. Kansas City changed his life by drafting him in the fifth round in 2008 out of Grand Valley State.
He has started every game since entering the NFL.
“It’s always a blessing each time I step on the field,” Carr said. “I had a great four years in Kansas City, but Dallas was the team that showed they had faith in my ability and they wanted me in the free agency process. So far it’s worked out pretty good. I don’t look back at things. I still have memories of Kansas City, but I have a lot of great memories in Dallas as well and I’m having fun right now.”
