    If I were Carr I would be a prick and refuse to re-do my deal no matter who wants me

    Getting David Carr doesn't make sense.

    In addition, I thought some of you guys were complaining about
    ONE Jeff Tedford prodigy...Aaron Rodgers.

    David Carr is another Tedford prodigy.

    Would you want *gasp* TWO Tedford offspring in Green Bay?

    The Tedford CURSE times two! ooooooh...

    How about this for a rumor??

    Moss will be traded to Green Bay for a player and a 4th round pick.

    GB's 4th Round pick to Oakland will go to the Texans for David Carr.

    Oakland could very easily trade that 4th pick to Houston and keep Randy Moss and get David Carr in the process.

    The thing is..NO ONE is interested in trading for David Carr because Houston is expected to release him soon. He can't be used in a trade scenario
    for Moss in a 3 way team deal because 1)Oakland doesn't need GB to get Carr 2)Carr has no trade value.

    Texans | Carr to be traded
    Thu, 22 Mar 2007 10:52:49 -0700

    ESPNews reports Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith said that QB David Carr will be traded as soon as Thursday, March 22.

    ~~

    There was speculation that Miami was the team that he was going to...But not sure why it fell thruough

    If Carr goes to Miami whether it's a trade or after he's released than Culpepper is history with the 'fins.

    He would more than likely end up in Oakland. The only other team out there is the Vikes and Pepper is not going back there for sure.

    If, in fact, Oakland passes on both Carr and Culpepper you know they are holding tight for Russell. If they pass on these two vets for the rookie I would be willing to bet Moss makes things even harder over there in Oakville.

    If the coach the Raiders had last year couldn't get right with Moss this rookie coach doesn't have a chance. I can imagine how Al's conversation with Moss would go:
    "Well I know you didn't like how things went here last year so we made some changes and we're bringing in a rookie coach and a rookie QB for you to work with." "How does that sound?"

    Being in a three way call on this would be priceless.

    Read Adam Shefter's review on NFL.com

    The reason the deal is running through is that teams realize they don't have to give anything up and can just wait till Houston releases him.

    The reason a team might make a trade is to make sure they get him and don't get into a bidding war and lose him to someone else. As with Carr, the 3 way trade makes sense so that Oakland would be assured of getting him and getting rid of Moss. If Texas wanted Moss I am sure that a straight up trade could be made. However that doesn't seem to be happening.

    I just read an article quoting the Vikes coach saying no thanks to Carr. He doesen't like his delivery and says there are certain throws he can make and some he can't. Very strongly worded as a NO WAY deal for the Vikes.

    No one was going to give anything for Carr, and Houston wasn't going to sit on him.

    Yes, no one wanted to pick up his salary that is left, and if I am David... why not pick where I want to go instead of redoing my deal so the Texans can benefit by trading me. Predictable, and that is the same issue that the Raider will have with Moss. No one with want that salary, and if he doesn't want to restructure, they are not going to want to trade for him.

    Carr being cut was a given, unless Carr wanted to go there.
