When Ravens cornerback Chris Carr faces the Steelers on Sunday, he gets a chance to see what might have been.
As a free agent after playing one season with the Titans in 2008, Carr had several options, among them to sign with the Ravens or the Steelers. He chose the Ravens because he used to watch the Ravens play and dream of what it would be like to play with Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.
"It was going to be tough not to come to Baltimore," Carr said. "All things being equal, I was going to come here. It was definitely attractive going to Pittsburgh because they had success, but they were going to have to wow me. ... I pretty much had my mind made up on coming to Baltimore."
Carr has played almost every position in the Ravens secondary, including safety during his 21 games with the team. He has started at left corner the first three games of the season after playing most the nickel position a year ago.
