GIANTS' DAVID CARR DECIDES NOT TO FOLLOW MIKE SULLIVAN TO TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/03/giants_david_carr_decides_not.html)

"When David Carr hit the free-agent market Tuesday, it was clear the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers would be interested in his services, given former Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants) quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan is
the Bucs' new offensive coordinator.<div class="entry-content">


Carr listened and considered it. But in the end, he decided not to head to
Tampa.</p>


The 10-year veteran, who just completed his third season with the Giants,
will not join the Buccaneers, per someone informed of Carr's thinking. The
person, who requested anonymity because the free-agent process is ongoing for
Carr, said it's not yet determined whether he'll return to East Rutherford and
is mulling another offer.</p>


The Buccaneers are reportedly <a href="https://twitter.com/#%21/NFLSTROUD/status/179958162898681856">close to
signing Dan Orlovsky</a>.</p>


Carr, 32, did not appear in any games last season after <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2011/09/giants_keep_david_carr_put_sag.html">edging
out an ill Sage Rosenfels in camp</a> to earn the backup spot behind Eli
Manning.</p>


In 2008-09, Carr appeared in a total of nine games, with his most extended
action coming in a blowout victory over the Oakland Raiders in 2009 after
Manning left the game because of a lingering foot injury (and the Giants' early
big lead). Carr completed 9 of 14 attempts that day for 90 yards.</p>


After playing only one game for the San Francisco 49ers in 2010, Carr
returned to the Giants. His agent, Tim Younger, said recently Carr was
interested in remaining with the team and that the feelings were mutual.</p>

Elsewhere, David Diehl told a few reporters on Tuesday he's fine with moving
to right tackle, if that's indeed what the team has planned for him.</p>


"Whether it's at left tackle or right tackle, it's no difference to me,"
Diehl said, <a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/13223/tuck-holds-out-hope-of-jacobs-return">per
ESPN New York</a>."</p>

Glad to see this, Carr has already paid his dues in Houston and don't believe he was ready to go to Tampa to be the whipping boy again while they try and get back on track.</P>


Not wishing anything bad on Eli but feel good about Carr being the guy to step in if called upon.</P>


Good Luck</P>

Same here. Not many teams can feel as comfortable with having their backup stepping in.
Look at the Colts, Chiefs, Eagles and Bears last season.
