NFL Free Agency: New York Giants Re-Sign David Carr
After the New York Giants and David Carr looked elsewhere, they realized they are just better together. Today, Carr came back to the Giants by re-signing a one year contract with the club.
Carr is 33 years old, and obviously wanted to test the open market to see what other kinds of opportunities were out there for him. There were rumors of him joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and reuniting with former Giants coach Mike Sullivan who is the offensive coordinator for the Bucs.
He hasn’t started a game since 2007. Carr is the perfect backup quarterback for the Giants. If they ever need him to play, he isn’t going to kill the Giants on offense. He’s been with the team four of the past five years, so he knows the offense.
Eli Manning has the longest consecutive start streak in the league with 135, so Carr hasn’t played too much in the past few years. Carr’s last touchdown pass came in 2009 with the Giants. He was 2-3 for 19 yards in 2012 for the club.
It will still behoove the Giants to pick up a young, developmental prospect at some point in the future. While Manning isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, you never know in football. Someone that they can develop and take hold of the offense in a backup role could be a good idea down the road.
It’s very possible that Carr next year gets a shot with a team who has a young quarterback and is given a chance to beat out that quarterback for the starting job. For 2013, it’s the perfect move for both club and player.
