IRVING (105.3 THE FAN) – I have often said and written, “Brandon Carr will be on your football team in 2016.”

That despite his middling performance and his bloated contract.

Now the contract is different… And maybe the performance from this supremely good locker-room guy will be, too.

Sources in the Cowboys front office told me on Monday that they have re-done Carr’s contract.

The new deal will see Carr’s salary reduced from $9.1 million to under $6 million, reports NFL Network.

Carr signed a five-year, $50 million deal with the Cowboys in 2012, making him one of the highest-paid corners in the league.

That’s now changed – but Carr being on this team was never going to change.
