On Saturday Brandon Carr’s friend committed suicide. On Sunday Brandon Carr was beaten for a touchdown pass by Riley Cooper.
On Tuesday Brandon Carr proved why the Dallas Cowboys signed him as a free agent last spring.

“Since I first got into the league I’ve wanted to do something to help kids,” Carr said before his red-carpet event at Addison Motorcars. “If my foundation can help just one little boy or girl with their education or fitness, then this will all be worth it. I know I can’t help them all, but I’m going to do what I can.”
