In Sept. 1995, the Cowboys signed free agent cornerback Deion Sanders to a $35 million contract, making him the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL. Dallas is hoping its latest free agent cornerback, Brandon Carr, can match Sanders’ success. The former Chief signed a five-year, $51 million deal to shore up the Cowboys defensive backfield. The move has already paid off, says SI’s Chris Burke, who noted that Carr picked off Philip Rivers twice in the recent Dallas-San Diego game.
The Chargers faithful refer to Phillip Rivers as Felipe Rios, this meme is from this pass season where he complete several 4th down passes to lead the Chargers to an overtime victory against the 49ers.
