A visitor, finally

By Marla Ridenour Published: March 2, 2009

Tennessee Titans free agent cornerback/kick returner Chris Carr was scheduled to arrive in Cleveland Monday night after visiting the Detroit Lions.

A four-year veteran, Carr could provide help in the Browns secondary and take some of the load off Pro Bowl special teamer Joshua Cribbs. New coach Eric Mangini said at the combine that Cribbs could see some action next season on defense.

Carr, 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, started only two of 16 games for the Titans in 2008, but finished fourth in the NFL in kickoff return average (28.1) and eighth in the AFC in punt return average (10.1). Playing the previous three years with the Raiders, Carr left Oakland as its all-time kickoff return leader with 201 returns for 4,841 yards (24.1 average). Making the Raiders as an undrafted rookie from Boise State in 2005, Carr has never missed a game and has made six career starts.

After visiting the Lions, coached by his defensive coordinator last year, Jim Schwartz, Carr told the Detroit Free Press he wasn't sure he'd leave Tennessee.

''If a team's going to give me more of an opportunity, then I probably would leave,'' he said.
