Saints to re-sign Chris Carr

The New Orleans Saints will re-sign veteran cornerback Chris Carr, according to his agent Buddy Baker. There is no word yet on who will be released to make room.

The Saints released Carr last Saturday when they activated linebacker Jonathan Vilma from the short-term injured reserve list. It’s possible they felt Carr was expendable for their game against the New York Jets since they knew they wouldn’t be playing as much nickel and dime defense against the run-heavy Jets. They’ll certainly use more nickel and dime Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys.

Carr, 30, has played well in a limited role for the Saints this season, with one interception, two passes defended and eight tackles.
