Should the Patriots pursue Brandon Carr, CB of the Kansas City Chiefs?

Earlier today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that former Oakland Raiders cornerback Stanford Routt had signed with the Kansas CIty Chiefs on a three year, $19.6 Million deal. Generally, that would mean that Kansas City and head coach (and our dear friend) Romeo Crennel were just bolstering the already strong secondary, and making moves that they see best fit for the football team. However, the Chiefs are in a bit of a predicament. Their star wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is a free agent, and their star cornerback Brandon Carr is also about to hit the market. So, they have the decision to make whether or not to tag Bowe and pay him Larry Fitzgerald/Andre Johnson/soon to be Calvin Johnson money, or tag Brandon Carr and pay him Nnamdi Asomugha, Darrelle Revis and Asante Samuel money.

So, being that the Patriots are looking for help in the secondary, or could at least stand to improve on a couple of positions, should they pursue the 25 year old corner? Or, should they just target secondary help through the draft?

In my opinion, they should make a run for Carr. He would bring a bit more experience to the secondary, and a secondary of Carr, McCourty, Chung, Sterling Moore, Ras-I Dowling, and Kyle Arrington would be damn good in my opinion. Going after Carr would also free up the Patriots to address other needs in the draft (i.e. 3-4 DE, wide receiver, Center.)
