Roger Dale Carr (born July 1, 1952) is a former National Football League wide receiver who played mainly for the Baltimore Colts. He was selected to the Pro Bowl after the 1976 season, during which he caught 43 passes for 924 yards.[1]

Carr helped the Colts win the AFC East Division from 1975-1977. In 10 seasons he made 271 receptions for 5071 yards and 31 touchdowns.

He retired in 1983 after playing his final season for the San Diego Chargers. Previously, he played for the Seattle Seahawks in the 1982 season, when he caught 19 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns and helped to provide the winning score against the Denver Broncos. His salary that year was $225,000.[1]

Carr was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, but reared in Cotton Valley in Webster Parish in northwestern Louisiana, where he still maintained his residence in 1983 at the time of his retirement as a professional player.[1]

Carr returned as a graduate assistant to his alma mater, Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, where he played for the Bulldogs. From 2003 to 2005, he coached at the Roman Catholic-affiliated St. Frederick High School in Monroe, Louisiana. Since 2009, he has been the offensive coordinator for the Providence High School in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Carr was inducted into the Louisiana Tech University Athletic Hall of Fame in 2007.
