Titans to work out David Carr Tuesday


While the Titans continue to sort out the condition of their starting quarterback, they’re looking ahead for a new backup.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Titans will work out David Carr tomorrow.

The Titans were carrying just two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, although Rusty Smith was hanging around on the practice squad.

Carr, who made a seamless transition from No. 1 overall pick to journeyman backup, would provide more experience behind interim starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Titans made an aggressive financial decision to swap out Matt Hasselbeck for Fitzpatrick this offseason, so going with another seasoned reserve is consistent with their other moves.

    Now it’s a cheap used Carr, but when it was new, it was really expensive.

    Wow, from number one overall pick to journeyman backup to Freddie Mercury…

    Where’s Joey Harrington, or Jamarcus, or Ryan Leaf, or Timmy Tebow?

    I love when headlines are punchlines.

    On another note, killer stache, Carr.

    The return of Vince Young!

    Just as good as Rodgers with a decent O-Line.

    He looks like a GI Joe figurine with a mustache.

    Freddy Mercury was the greatest male vocalist in the history of Rock n Roll and he’s been gone for over a decade. The greatest QB in the history of the NFL is debatable however in all likelihood he’s still alive but he’s not going to be playing for the Titans this or any other year.

    Eli has turned into David Carr now.

    Ugh, is hockey starting soon?

    That photo makes him look like the guy who graduated in the 90’s yet still drives around the high school.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that mustache…

  14. xtrout says: Sep 30, 2013 4:04 PM

    Wow, is that a picture of David Carr? or Freddy Mercury?

    This thread made for a very good laugh.

    What? Jared Lorenzen isn’t available?

  18. crownofthehelmet says: Sep 30, 2013 4:21 PM

    “Dammit! I didn’t know he was available!”

    “Carr, who made a seamless transition from No. 1 overall pick to journeyman backup…”

    That line actually made me laugh out loud…and then immediately feel bad for the guy.

    I thought the Texans would because the successor to Carr has been the worst thing on Earth since Josh Freeman.

  21. johnnyb612 says: Sep 30, 2013 4:32 PM

    That mustache is freaking awesome…

  22. earpaniac says: Sep 30, 2013 4:46 PM

    Perfect example of how a team can ruin a player. Not saying the Texans had much of a choice in the matter, but I bet Carr still flinches everytime he closes his eyes.

  23. corkspop says: Sep 30, 2013 4:53 PM

    Are you kidding? There are at least 6 unemployed QB’s that are better than Carr.

  24. 727bucsfan says: Sep 30, 2013 5:02 PM

    Looks like Uncle Rico dropped the head band and got a haircut.

    Bet he can throw that ball over them mountains.

  25. jhorton83 says: Sep 30, 2013 6:02 PM

    That is an awesome mustache. He deserves to be signed just for that.

  26. freepretzels says: Sep 30, 2013 6:16 PM

    He looks like Matt Dillon in something about Mary

  27. austinallen214 says: Sep 30, 2013 6:50 PM

    that mustache makes him look like a used car salesmen

  28. docboss says: Sep 30, 2013 8:22 PM

    When Sam Bradford looks in the mirror, he sees David Carr.

  29. dirk504 says: Sep 30, 2013 10:34 PM

    He looks like a porn star from the 70’s.
