The early news out of the Kansas City Chiefs camp regarding their impending free agents was that the team would be choosing whether to put the franchise tag on cornerback Brandon Carr or wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. Following the Chiefs' signing of cornerback Stanford Routt, it now seems like a given that Bowe will be tagged by the team, allowing Carr to hit the open market.
Sources have said the Cowboys would love for Chiefs CB Brandon Carr to hit the open market, so they can make a run at him. The expectation is that the Chiefs could franchise Carr and are said to be in fine cap shape, but they also have WR Dwayne Bowe to worry about. If Carr somehow makes it to March 13 unsigned, expect the Cowboys to go all in for him and worry about a high-profile guard (Carl Nicks or someone else) thereafter.
As Thorman notes, any Dallas interest is going to drive up the price for Carr. It appears as though the cornerback could be in for a lucrative free agency.
