New Orleans Saints re-sign CB Chris Carr and place CB Patrick Robinson on Injured Reserve

Posted Sep 18, 2013

The Saints also signed WR Andy Tanner to the practice squad and released FB Austin Johnson

The New Orleans Saints announced Wednesday that they have re-signed cornerback Chris Carr and placed cornerback Patrick Robinson on injured reserve. The Saints also signed WR Andy Tanner to the practice squad and released FB Austin Johnson. The announcement was made coach Sean Payton after practice.

Carr returns to New Orleans after spending the preseason with the club, recording eight solo tackles, one pass defense and one special teams stops. Carr, who spent the 2012 season as a reserve defensive back and contributor on special teams with the San Diego Chargers, has appeared in 114 career games with 27 starts in eight NFL seasons with the Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders, compiling 207 tackles (166 solo), 2.5 sacks, six interceptions, 32 passes defensed, five forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, 30 special teams stops and two special teams fumble recoveries.
 
The 5-10, 181 pound native of Reno, Nev., who originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent out of Oakland in 2005 also has extensive experience as a kickoff and punt returner. He has returned 148 punts for 1,073 yards (7.3 avg.) and brought back 256 kickoffs for 6,276 yards (24.5 avg.). Carr set a number of career and single-season kickoff return records in Oakland from 2005-07. He still holds the Raiders’ career record with 201 kickoff returns for 4,841 yards (24.1 avg.), while setting single-season marks for kickoff return yards (1,762) and kickoff return average (25.5) in 2006. Two years later, he set a career-high by averaging 28.1 yards on 35 kickoff returns for the Titans.
