The Ravens continue to upgrade the secondary. 

Baltimore has reached an agreement in principle on a four-year deal with former Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr. 

"This is a good football player," General Manager Ozzie Newsome said. "We got better today."

Improving the secondary was a key priority for the Ravens this offseason, and Carr does just that. The 30-year-old cornerback has started every game throughout his nine-year career, playing in 144-straight games.

Carr had 61 tackles, nine passes defensed and one interception last year for the Cowboys. He likely will take the open starting cornerback spot opposite Jimmy Smith.

The addition of Carr comes after the Ravens already signed safety Tony Jefferson to a four-year deal last week. The expected starting secondary will be Carr, Smith, Jefferson and Eric Weddle.

The Ravens had reportedly also been interested in another Cowboys cornerback, Morris Claiborne, but the New York Jets have reportedly agreed to a deal with Claiborne.

Carr is expected to come to Owings Mills next week to officially sign his contract.
