Default Speculation about Carr to the Vikes?

http://www.aolsportsblog.com/2007/02...rr-to-vikings/

Speculation on David going to the Vikes for a 4th round pick. I know some of you would jump on this, but I wouldn't.

I'd take a 4th and throw a party. You aren't going to get higher than that.

KFFL reports that the team would be willing to trade Carr for a second-to-sixth round pick, creating the strictest of parameters for a deal. Meanwhile, the St. Paul Pioneer Press is reporting that the Vikings and Texans have discussed the possibility of Carr coming to Minnesota for a fourth-rounder.

This is an interesting piece to the article...2nd to 6th rd pick? If those are the parameters we're in trouble!

I would take a 4th, but I wouldn't do it too soon. If they are really targeting Plummer, we don't want Denver to raise the stakes for him. (Of course, I hope they release Plummer then we sign him) If we get rid of Carr too early, then we're in a position of needing a veteran starter and may have to give up a draft choice.

I agree, if we trade Carr too soon then we will have to give up what we got for him to Denver if that is the direction they want to go, which I think it is. Im still not sold on the idea of plummer but I guess only time will tell.

I don't think there's any possibility that we get a 3rd for Carr. Joey Harrington was traded for a 6th rounder last year...Carr isn't much better.

The blog got this info from a St. Paul paper.

Rumors persist that the Vikings could trade with the Houston Texans for quarterback David Carr, 27, who might cost just a fourth-round draft pick.

I originally thought a 3rd but I really believe that to be too rich for teams who will have the same questions about Carr that the Texans do. A 4th is very reasonable.

Default Re: Speculation about Carr to the Vikes?

I'm torn on trading or keeping Carr. I look at his physical gifts and see the perfect franchise QB. Then I watch games and see a guy that our team probably ruined by throwing him to the wolves.

I wonder what he could do w/ AD at RB, a better OL and another year w/ Kubes. I worry that we'll trade him and he'll become a Plunkett or Gannon for someone else and we'll be stuck w/ an older vet who's no better.

Being stationed in Germany I had to buy the games over the internet. Carr looked VERY shaky at times and it was clear Kubes minimized his role towards the end of the year. I was able to listen to one of Carr's post game reports and his word's after loss to Titans did not inspire or exude confidence or leadership.

Yet despite these shortfalls, I don't see a better replacement in this draft or FA market for our situation. I wouldn't mind drafting a QB like Mich St Drew Stanton in 3rd, but if that occured I'd want at least a 3rd in return for Carr.

Aside from your views on whether you like David Carr or not, this is just a thread on what you'd like to get in return IF it DID happen. Being that the case, I would think that anything better than a 3rd round would be great, but anything worse than a 3rd would not be a good deal for us.

I have a feeling that what ever we get for Carr, Denver will bet asking the same thing for Plummer.
I don't think they will get it, but if they keep Plummer on the roster long enough they might get one round lower.

Agreed. I think he's shown more than Joey Harrington and most teams have to admire his athletic ability and his durability. For instance, GB decides that DC could replace Favre. They trade a #3 and sit David for a year and let him watch Brett. Although GB overachieved a bit this year, with another solid draft or two they could be play-off team if they have a solid QB.

Raiders would also be an excellent candidate given Davis rep for taking retreads and making them SB QBs.

GB wouldn't do it when they still have a guy backing up Favre..Rodgers..that hasn't even gotten a chance.

Again, Carr has shown nothing but the ability to take a hit. Teams won't give up a 3rd unless they are desperate to make a move or have extra picks. He won't be an upgrade over most guys up there and will have to compete.

Default Re: Speculation about Carr to the Vikes?

In fact, I could see Davis trading for Carr and then drafting AD or Calvin Johnson w/ #1 pick. He could still trade Moss and use that pick for more horsepower also.
