It will be quite some time before we know how the quarterback depth chart shakes out for one of the teams that calls MetLife Stadium home.
For the Giants, though, you can go ahead and write it in ink right now. Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that the Giants have agreed to terms with quarterback David Carr on a contract that will keep him in his familiar role as Eli Manning’s backup.
It’s not a job that calls for Carr to play all that much. Manning has made 135 straight starts, leaving Carr nothing but mop-up duty during his time with the Giants. It will be Carr’s fifth year as a team with one year in San Francisco serving to break up a two and, now, three-year stint carrying a clipboard in Jersey.
Carr, who hasn’t started a game since he was with the Panthers in 2007, reportedly drew some interest from other teams early in free agency, but the former first overall pick either didn’t find a better deal or didn’t want to break away from the Giants.
