The NFL veteran combine has led to another contract for one of its participants.

The Indianapolis Colts announced Monday night they have signed cornerback Deveron Carr following his performance in the combine on Sunday in Arizona.

Carr spent his rookie season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013 where he appeared in nine games while serving on special teams. Carr signed with Tampa Bay as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State.

Carr started 34-of-42 career games at Arizona State (2008-2012) and finished with 86 tackles, 22 passes defensed, three fumble recoveries, 2.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions. As a senior in 2012, he earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention after starting all 13 games and recording 23 tackles, eight passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and an interception.

Carr joins wide receiver Nathan Slaughter as players to sign contracts after performing in the veteran combine. Slaughter signed with the Arizona Cardinals.

  1. So Carr and Slaughter, who got signed after the veteran combine are what, 2 years and 1 year (respectively) removed from college, both of whom probably have little to no experience playing in the NFL? Hmm. Define NFL Veteran…

    Good on those guys though. Even signing with a team now is an accomplishment.

  2. I heard the NFL had career counsellors at the vet combine to break the news gently to these guys that they were not likely to find another job in the league and it was time to consider another career.

    This was an exercise as much for the vet players as for the teams.

    There are way more candidates than jobs with more competition coming out of college every year. It can understandably be difficult for these older guys to accept that the party’s over.

  3. Grigson’s folly continues. Spend a boat load on old offensive players and pick up scrub defensive second helpings and see where that gets you. The team still won’t be able to stop anyone.

  4. One last chance to make it. Probably worth risking PEDs don’t you think? I mean, what do they have to lose? The NFL might want to keep an eye on that.

  5. Kinda surprised the colts haven’t picked up Brandon Spikes yet seeing how Thay can’t stop the run and that’s all Spikes can do.

  6. Good for him. I’ll get there were a good number of guys at the Vets’ combine who could make rosters. They’re just never gonna look impressive doing drills, and teams know that.

    In that regard, the combine should be more of an extensive scrimmage so that teams can see these guys in game situations.

  7. I had this all wrong. Mainly because this site promoted older retreads like VY and Brady Quinn and Felix Jones, I forgot about younger players who might still have it. Good for them…the older guys…get a job!

  8. My poor Steelers, Jarvis Jones will be participating in two years, along with Cortez Allen, Dri Archer, Shamarko Thomas, and more.

    Trent is misunderstood, he’s a beast and is just waiting for the right system to exploit his talents. Just ask him…he’ll tell you all about it!
