Despite the fact he hasn’t started a game since 2007, and has a career record of 23-56, there appears to be a market for Giants backup quarterback David Carr.
According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today, the Buccaneers were interested in Carr a year ago, and “should be again.” The link is former Giants assistant Mike Sullivan, now the Bucs offensive coordinator.
The Bucs might want someone to push Josh Freeman, but not to the extent they have to pay that person a load of money, and Carr could satisfy that requirement.
Since taking a horrible beating as the first pick of the expansion Texans, Carr’s career has settled into a comfortable groove. He ended up playing more than he anticipated with the Panthers in 2007, and has since spent four years with the Giants and one with the 49ers without starting a game.
He’s thrown 61 passes in the last five years, and even if he plays for the minimum, can bank another million bucks.
Life is not always fair.
