High-priced Carr accepts charge to boost takeaways

OXNARD, California -

Brandon Carr knows the Dallas Cowboys need to create more turnovers, and that high-priced cornerbacks are expected to provide their share.
    
Carr says he isn't putting pressure on himself in the second year of a five-year, $50 million contract with $25 million guaranteed.
    
But he is expecting a big year. He says it's time to "turn the corner as a player" heading into his sixth season.
    
He has started all 80 games as a pro, but only last year did he finally hit double digits in career interceptions with 11.
    
Carr had three of Dallas' seven interceptions. The Cowboys tied his previous team, Kansas City, for last in the NFL.
    
Dallas changed everything but the players on defense in the offseason and is putting an emphasis on turnovers.
