Chris Carr: “I’m back!”

The Ravens appear to have rounded out their cornerback rotation today, as Chris Carr announced on Twitter that he is returning to Baltimore.

“Well bmore. I’m backkkkkkkkkkkkk! Very excited to finish my career here” Carr tweeted.

Terms of Carr’s deal have not been disclosed, and the Ravens have yet to acknowledge that they’ve reached a contract with the cornerback, but if Carr has put it out there, we can assume it’s done.

Carr gives the Ravens a strong four-cornerback rotation that includes Domonique Foxworth, Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. A versatile player, Carr could also be moved to safety if he was needed there.

Through his Twitter account, Carr pledged to “work as hard as possible to make myself and my teammates better. That includes the mental, spiritual, physical, and nutritional”

He added: “Thanks to all the support, I love it here in bmore and I love everything about being a Raven.”

Carr made it known that he hoped to return to the Ravens the day after Baltimore’s loss to the Steelers in the divisional round of last year’s playoffs.

“Myself, I definitely want to come back,” Carr said at the time. “And you guys know me, I’m not going to say it if I don’t mean it. There’s no other place I’d want to play. I’ve played on three separate teams, and even this year compared to last season with the Ravens, the team chemistry that we have and the players and the unity, you just can’t get that too many places. Anything but a Super Bowl for this team is a disappointment.”

Despite getting interest from the Jaguars and Jets, the man followed through on his word.
