Saints hoping DB Carr provides depth, experience
METAIRIE - Chris Carr figured he'd get comfortable with the Saints' new defense soon enough.
The ninth-year cornerback, who started for one of the NFL's top defenses in Baltimore three seasons ago, now aims to establish a regular role in New Orleans under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who was also Carr's coordinator in Oakland at the beginning of his career.
During training camp, Carr has been working as a reserve cornerback and return man. He stood out in New Orleans' only scrimmage last weekend with an interception and tipped pass that led to another turnover.
Ryan and coach Sean Payton say Carr's addition in June has provided depth to the secondary in the form of an intelligent veteran who understands Ryan's system and is versatile enough to play multiple roles.
