Cornerback Brandon Carr, who was apparently Dallas' top target, agreed Wednesday to a five-year deal, and quarterback Kyle Orton agreed to a three-year deal to be Tony Romo's backup. Both played in Kansas City last season.
Dallas also announced the signings of unrestricted free-agent offensive lineman Mackenzy Bernadeau from the Carolina Panthers to a four-year deal, and fullback Lawrence Vickers from Houston for two years.
Within hours after free agency began Tuesday afternoon, team officials visited with Carr at Cowboys Stadium.
