Jerry Jones Admits They Overpaid for CB Brandon Carr

This is funny for various reasons.

The Cowboys needed secondary help, so they went out and signed Chiefs cornerback Brandon Carr to a lucrative $50.1 million deal, with roughly half that money guaranteed. Locking that much money up with one player will almost always lead to questions from Cowboys fans about whether the team overpaid. But according to writer Rob Phillips , Jerry Jones has already answered that question for fans, admitting that he overpaid for Carr, before backtracking on his previous statement. “We know we overpaid to get Carr,” Jones said at the NFL meetings. “Not overpay — we paid retail.”
