Chris Carr To Retire

Veteran defensive back Chris Carr has announced, via Twitter, that he’s officially retiring as an NFL player this week. In a string of successive tweets, Carr has thanked the teams he played for and those teams’ fans, but says his years as a Raven were the highlight of his career.

“When I think of my career, I consider myself a Raven first and foremost,” Carr tweeted. “My three years in Bmore are my fondest football memories! The Raven organization is incredible and the fans are second to none! Thank you Baltimore.”

Carr, 30, also played for the Raiders, Titans, Chargers, and Saints, but his only season as a fulltime starter on defense came in Baltimore in 2010. The Boise St. alum racked up 60 tackles, three forced fumbles, and a pair of interceptions for the Ravens that season. Over the course of his career, Carr appeared in 125 NFL games, compiling more than 7,300 return yards on kicks and punts in addition to his defensive contributions.
