Brandon Carr serves as Victor Cruz's shadow
On Wednesday, Brandon Carr, the Cowboys’ $50 million free-agent acquisition, was charged with keeping Cruz under control, following the Giants wide receiver all over the field.
Cruz finished with six catches for 58 yards, including s 26-yarder in the first quarter.
“It was pretty fun,” Carr said of the one-on-one work.
When Cruz was in the slot, Orlando Scandrick took responsibility but when Cruz was outside on either side, Carr was in his shadow.
“It’s a personal battle,” Carr said. “It’s you and him the whole game for the most part and any caught ball any big play that’s going to fall back on you. Anytime you get the opportunity for a one-on-one opportunity with Cruz or any receiver, I’m going to try to make the best of it.”
