Brandon Carr ready to size up vs. Vincent Jackson
|Cowboys CB Brandon Carr talks about going up against Buccaneer WR Vincent Jackson, bouncing back after a disappointing loss and more. |
Jackson is now in Tampa Bay and will visit Cowboys Stadium on Sunday.
“He looks like he’s picking up where he left off in San Diego,” Carr said. “Just from my first-hand experiences with Vincent Jackson, he’s a big, fast, physical receiver. I’ll have my work cut out for me the whole 60 minutes.”
In his first two games, Jackson has nine catches for 175 yards and a 41-yard touchdown, quickly developing into Josh Freeman's go-to receiver.
In the season opener against the New York Giants, Carr shadowed Victor Cruz and helped limit him to six catches for 58 yards. Will Carr shadow Jackson on Sunday?
“I don’t even know,” Carr said. “We’re not going to find out until Sunday.”
At 6-5, 230 pounds, Jackson is among the biggest receivers in the NFL. At 6-0, 210 pounds, Carr is big for a cornerback.
“I like checking big receivers,” Carr said. “It should be a good matchup for me, a good test. I’m ready for the challenge. I can’t wait for Sunday to get here.”
