Vikings Free Agency 2012: Chris Carr Set To Visit Minnesota

The Minnesota Vikings may have a respectable cornerback position in 2012, but that heavily depends on whether or not they'll bring the recently acquitted Chris Cook back. If not, they're definitely hurting for some help, and even if they do, things are less than guaranteed. So they've been looking for a little outside help here and there this free agency period.

Perhaps Chris Carr qualifies as some outside help, as Jason La Canfora tweets that he's visiting with the Vikings after his visit with the Kansas City Chiefs. Carr is a seven-year pro, but hasn't seen significant action as a starter, outside of his 2010 season with the Baltimore Ravens. In that season, he started and played in all 16 games, had 61 tackles and had two picks. On top of that, he had three forced fumbles.

But he quickly fell down the depth chart in 2011, starting just one game and appearing in nine. The Ravens released him at the beginning of March. He's also spent time on the Tennessee Titans and the Oakland Raiders, who drafted him in 2005. Aside from the 2010 season, he's never started more than four games in a single season. But he could be a player who is looking for a change of scenery and another opportunity to prove himself.
