Bucs Making A Play For David Carr?

March 1st, 2013

No, Joe isn’t trying to go all New York Giants on people today, but a Twitter offering this afternoon from a well-plugged in NFL insider suggests the Bucs may be eyeing a certain quarterback to offer competition/non-competition for Josh Freeman.

That could be Giants backup quarterback David Carr, so says USA Today’s Mike Garafolo.

@MikeGarafolo: A free agency note: NYG QB David Carr expected to hit the free agent market. TB + Mike Sullivan were interested last year, should be again.

Well, Joe has always thought David Carr was a decent quarterback. He started his NFL career OK with the Houston Texans but simply became shell-shocked from the porous offensive line he worked behind. Carr was pummeled so much it damned near killed his career and is still probably a bit gun-shy as a result.

Joe wasn’t aware the Bucs made a play for Carr last year. Interesting.

Shoot, the Bucs could do worse for a backup quarterback. You know, someone like Dan Orlovsky.

    I’d rather have Matt Hasselbeck

    i’d rather go with no backup Qb at all!

    i’d rather the bucs draft a QB even with a weaker qb draft class than consider a former punching bag aka David Carr for the competition and back up QB slot. Isn’t there a former Rutgers QB somewhere LOL

    He’s just not good.

    Are you kidding me David Carr?? That guy got blasted into oblivion when the Texans had absolutely no offensive line. Was never the same since and certainly is no competition for even Josh Freeman. Hopefully this NEVER happens. We might as well keep Orlovsky.

    Jordan Rogers in the 6th.

    Have to figured if they were really interested last season would of been the time they’d pick up Carr, as he could’ve helped Freeman learn Sullivans playbook much quicker than Orlovsky. Probably not much more than the random misinformation that happens during FA and prior to the draft.

  8. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Carr is an upgrade over Orlovsky, for sure, but I think the Bucs may draft a QB somewhere in the middle rounds this year. We’ll see.

  9. NavyK9Chief Says:

    I think this would be an improvement for the Bucs as a backup to Josh. He was a starter and could put the needed pressure on Josh. GO BUCS!

    Bray in the fifth?

  11. Dave Says:

    IMHO David Carr is the perfect example of a good QB ruined because of changing OCs and HCs… and no protection.

    The scarecrow from the wizzard of oz might blow in for a tryout next week he has more heart than carr enough with the slander and gossip already

    Not sure Carr is any better than Orlovsky. Maybe Dysart in the 5th.
