I won’t hold it against anyone who forgot David Carr still played football, he’s hasn’t had an opportunity to start a game in his two stints with the New York Giants (2008-09, 2011-12) due to Eli Manning’s incredible durability. Carr plans to strike while the iron is hot according to Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News, and turn to free agency in an attempt to salvage his once promising career. The 33-year-old Carr is planning to test the free-agent market to see if he can find a better opportunity to play elsewhere, according to someone familiar with his plans. Carr, who was the No. 1 overall pick of the NFL draft way back in 2002 but hasn’t started a regular season game since 2007, will be an unrestricted free agent on March 12 and expects to draw some interest from around the league. Vacchiano also suggests that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have some interest in the former Houston Texans quarterback. The most likely spot would seem to be with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who according to one league source had some interest in him before he re-signed with the Giants before last season. The Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator is former Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan. And Carr would “at least be in the conversation” for a job down there, a source said, with Bucs starter Josh Freeman coming off two shaky seasons in a row. There are a lot of starting opportunities available in the NFL, I just hope David was using his time wisely while backing up Eli because this is most likely his last chance.
