CARR STAYS WITH THE GIANTS

Last year, the Giants decided to back up the first overall pick in the 2004 draft with the first overall pick from the 2002 draft.
And both sides have decided to give it another go.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants have re-signed quarterback David Carr.
Carr, selected with the No. 1 overall choice by the Texans nearly seven years ago, will continue to be the No. 2 guy behind Eli Manning, the No. 1 pick two years later.
Per Vacchiano, Carr signed a one-year, $1 million contract.
In three appearances last season, Carr completed nine of 12 passes for 115 yards and two touchdowns, which equated to a passer rating of 144.1.
Vacchiano also reports that the Giants have cut cornerback Sam Madison, running back Reuben Droughns, and safety Sammy Knight.  These three moves create more than $4.25 million in 2009 cap space.

    Excellent resign for the Giants. Clearing cap room for Q?

    $1 Million for Mittens. Just proves there is a QB shortage.

    Tells me that Carr has lost his fire and any desire to be a starter. Maybe it’s a simply pragmatic move, but I’d have to think he’d explore his opportunities if he wanted to. I think he’d probably rather pocket a mil and carry the clipboard at this point.

    Wrong, he will be the starter next year by game 3.

    Carr is one of the better the quarterbacks ive seen, except for the fact he is still paranoid from his days with the texans, if he could forget that time he has enough natural ability to be one of the best in the league

    if anyone has watched the giants with carr playing qb,
    you would be surprised at how good he actually is.

    If Eli gets hurt, Carr will do just fine. I think he will be a late bloomer in the NFL and if given a chance to start…..who knows?

    I will echo what others have said about Carr being better than is performance with the Texans. If your O-line can keep the QB on his feet he’s got a lot better chance of completing passes.
