Back in March, Derek Carr said that he had heard interest from teams in signing his older brother David to serve as a backup if they selected Derek in next week’s draft.
The younger Carr didn’t specify any of the teams that were interested, but his brother was a bit more forthcoming this week. David Carr told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the Browns were one of the teams that suggested there might be a Carr family reunion on their roster.
“Yeah, they’ve definitely been one of those teams that have expressed interest,” Carr said. “There are probably about six or seven teams that have been real interested in that scenario, so we’ll see what happens. It’s going to be exciting.”
There have been reports that the Browns have a deep interest in adding the younger Carr to their team, although there’s been similar reports about other quarterbacks at different points in the process. At this point, things will play out the way they play out for both Carr brothers but it does seem like big brother may be able to ride back into the NFL on his little brother’s coat tails.
