There are some teams that are thinking about adding a two-Carr garage this offseason.
Draft prospect Derek Carr told FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez and Phil Savage on SiriusXM NFL Radio that teams had mentioned the possibility of drafting him and signing his brother David as a package deal.
Derek said that he’s realized again how good his brother was during their workouts with Mike Sullivan (who coached David with the Giants), and thinks having the pair of them can only help.
“I wouldn’t want to step on anybody’s toes or anything like that,” Derek said. “But I think to have David and I on the same team, you get two things. First, you get a great quarterback, as coach Sullivan can testify. he worked us out and said it himself. Secondly, you’re getting a veteran guy who this will be his 13th year in the NFL who genuinely cares to help the rookie out. We’ll be doing it as our job, so there’s nothing more we’d care about than trying to make that team win.
“There’s so much positive things about having us both on the same team, that I don’t know why somebody wouldn’t think about it. And the truth is there are teams thinking about it, because they’ve been letting us know about it.”
While they might not match the Mannings (or the McCowns), Derek could aspire to his brother’s career.
David might not have lived up to his original draft status, as the top pick in the 2002 Draft, he has carved out a long run as a backup in the league, and that has as much to do with his ability off the field as on it.
While a team might want a non-Carr to park ahead of or at least between them on the depth chart, it’s doesn’t take a long look around to realize it isn’t the worst plan.
