Chris Carr never wanted to leave Baltimore.
“I love it here in Bmore,” the McQueen High graduate wrote on Twitter this week, “and I love everything about being a Raven.”
The 28-year-old unrestricted free agent cornerback returned to the Ravens on Saturday, signing a four-year contract.
“I will work as hard as possible to make myself and my teammates better,” Carr wrote on Twitter. “That includes the mental, spiritual, physical and nutritional.”
Carr, one of the top running backs in the history of northern Nevada high school football, played four years at Boise State after graduating from McQueen High in 2001. This season will be his seventh (his third with the Ravens) in the NFL. He played 2005-07 with the Oakland Raiders, 2008 with the Tennessee Titans and 2009-10 with Baltimore.
“Well, Bmore,” Carr wrote on Twitter on Saturday. “I’m backkkkkkkkkkk. Very excited to finish my career here.”
Carr has payed in 96 games over his first six seasons in the NFL. Last year was the first time he started all 16 regular season games. The 5-foot-10, 182-pounder has 190 tackles, 21 passes defensed and six interceptions in his career. He is also the Raiders all-time leader in kickoff returns, returning 201 kickoffs from 2005-07 for 4,841 yards (24.1 average).
Carr returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown for the Raiders on Oct. 29, 2006 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
