For the second time in as many weeks, the Vikings have added a CB in free agency. Last week, the Vikings signed former Chicago Bears CB Zack Bowman, and this week they’ve signed former Ravens CB Chris Carr.
Carr will be entering his 8th season in 2012 and will turn 29 later this month. He was an undrafted free agent out of Boise State in 2005 and played for the Oakland Raiders through the 2007 season. Carr has also spent time with the Tennessee Titans (2008) and the Baltimore Ravens (2009-11). He played in just 9 games last year because of a back injury, but before that he was an important part of the Ravens defense and he’s been one of the NFL’s top special teams performers during his career as well.
The Vikings secondary is a group that needed upgrades this offseason, and the additions of Bowman and Carr will help toward that end. With Chris Cook and Antoine Winfield set to return in 2012, Bowman and Carr will lead the competition for another starting CB job in the Vikings secondary.
