Talks with Brandon Carr continue
|ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer talks about NFL free agency and how the Cowboys are already looking to make a splash. |
There is a thought Carr might command $7 million to $8 million a season from the Cowboys. Carr is younger (he turns 26 in May and Finnegan just turned 28), so it will be interesting to see what his final financial numbers are.
Finnegan has a good relationship with new St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher, for whom he played in Tennessee. That might have something to do with the increased financial numbers.
The Cowboys do want to get a Carr deal done, but if they don't, the draft has plenty of quality players to look to.
UPDATE: A source with knowledge of the discussions between the sides said Wednesday afternoon a contract being finalized is getting close.
