The Titans have added cornerback/return man Chris Carr to their roster, as Oakland failed to match the offer sheet he signed with Tennessee last week. Since Carr wasn't drafted, the Titans won’t have to compensate the Raiders. In three NFL seasons, Carr (5-10, 180) has played in 48 NFL contests with four starts. He ranks as the Raiders' all-time leader in career kickoff returns (201) and kickoff return yards (4,841). He played in all 16 games for Oakland in '07. His career totals include 39 tackles, four fumble recoveries and five pass defensed, including a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in 2006. The Titans weren’t expecting Oakland to match the one-year offer sheet he signed with Tennessee last Friday, but the team wasn’t notified of Oakland’s intentions. Instead, the team found out from the NFL as the Raiders let the one-week deadline pass without making a move. Carr drew some interest as a restricted free agent, also visiting Buffalo, Carolina, and Cleveland after first visiting Tennessee.
