[ESPN.com] After wooing Brandon Carr underneath the bright lights of Cowboys Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a five-year deal with the free agent cornerback on Wednesday.
A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the contract is worth $50.1 million.
The Cowboys also agreed to a three-year contract with quarterback Kyle Orton, a source said. Both Carr and Orton played last season for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Carr, who turns 26 in May, started every game the previous four seasons since Kansas City took him in the fifth round of the 2008 draft. He has eight interceptions in his career and had four in 2011. The Chiefs’ coaches credited him with 58 tackles and 13 pass deflections.
