Derek Carr will be selected in the 2014 NFL Draft. While Carr could jump right in as a starter, but any team that selects him would surely want to pair him with a veteran presence.
While appearing on Sirius XM Radio, Derek Carr told Alex Marvez and Phil Savage that teams have spoken about his older brother David coming along in a package deal.
“I wouldn’t want to step on anybody’s toes or anything like that,” Derek said. “But I think to have David and I on the same team, you get two things. First, you get a great quarterback, as coach Sullivan can testify. he worked us out and said it himself. Secondly, you’re getting a veteran guy who this will be his 13th year in the NFL who genuinely cares to help the rookie out. We’ll be doing it as our job, so there’s nothing more we’d care about than trying to make that team win.
“There’s so much positive things about having us both on the same team, that i don’t know why somebody wouldn’t think about it. And the truth is there are teams thinking about it, because they’ve been letting us know about it.”
David Carr was the top pick in the 2002 NFL Draft. Since then he has gone onto have a long career as a backup.
