The former overall No.1 draft pick David Carr has thrown three passes in two seasons and has not started a game since 2007, yet he is drawing interest from teams during this free agency period according to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger:
The NFL's new 87-hour negotiating period, in which teams are permitted to contact agents of impending free agents but not enter into any sort of agreement, gives a preview of what opportunities are out there. And so far, in the hours since the negotiating period began at midnight earlier today, two teams in addition to the Giants have expressed interest in Carr, according to a person with knowledge of the attention Carr has received.
Carr would likely sign with a team where he would have a chance of competing for the starting role, which is unlikely as long as two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning is holding court in New York.
Whilst no team has declared interest at this time, one destination could be Tampa Bay where offensive co-ordinator Mike Sullivan worked with Carr for two years in New York before moving to the Buccaneers. If he wants to compete then one other destination could be Oakland, but this is dependent upon what the Raiders do with Carson Palmer.
All the league's free agents including David Carr will be able to sign with new teams once the free agency period opens on Tuesday.
