Chris Carr has announced his intentions to retire from the NFL. The former Baltimore Raven took to his Twitter page this morning to share the news. Carr, 30, played nine seasons in the NFL, playing for six different teams. He spent time at cornerback, as well as becoming a solid returner. At 5'10, Carr was a bit undersized, but what he lacked in height he made up for in hustle and heart.

Carr went undrafted in the 2005 NFL Draft and signed with the Oakland Raiders where he would play for three seasons. He then joined the Tennessee Titans in 2008, before becoming a member of the Ravens in 2009. Carr spent three seasons in Baltimore where he would get a chance to play defense, along with being a return specialist.

In 41 games with the Ravens, Carr had 101 tackles, five forced fumbles, four interceptions and two and half sacks. He had 37 punt returns for 285 yards and 15 kick returns for 349 yards. 

After his time in Baltimore, Carr signed with the Minnesota Vikings in the 2012 offseason. However, he would be cut before the regular season. Carr then joined the San Diego Chargers a few games into the 2012-2013 season where he would fill in occasionally in an injured secondary. In the 2013 offseason, Carr joined the New Orleans Saints but he was once again cut before the season started. Carr would later be brought back by the Saints during the regular season, but then was released again near the end of the season.

Considering he went undrafted, Carr made a solid living in the NFL for almost a decade and should be proud of his accomplishments.

Carr expressed his thanks to the organizations he played for and made sure to mention the Ravens.

He was also very complimentary of the fans

Congratulations on a solid career Chris and best of luck in your future endeavors.
