This Carr won’t take you anywhere

I’m sure it’s annoying when fantasy writers such as myself waffle on some issues. Unfortunately, waffling is unavoidable in many cases in today’s week-to-week and year-to-year NFL. In many cases, you can make a definitive statement about a player and be right half the time, so making those definitive statements can be difficult.

But I’ll make one right now: David Carr does not have a good future as an NFL starter, no matter where he goes.

In a weak free agent and NFL draft class, Carr, still only 27, will get a lot of attention and will be the subject of a lot of rumors. The Texans appear ready to give up on Carr, or they at least do not appear keen on paying him what he’s in line to make the next two years ($5.2 and $6 million in 2007 and 2008).

  • The LeSean McCoy Trade, RB Declines, and Chip Kelly March 4, 2015
    If you’re a 24/7/365 football nut, chances are you’ve already digested just about all you can about yesterday’s blockbuster LeSean McCoy/Kiko Alonso trade between the Eagles and Bills. I’ve gone on record on Twitter saying I don’t like the deal for Buffalo – McCoy is an eight-figure back coming off a down year, still a […]
