Default Adam Schefter reports Carr will not be leaving Houston

By Adam Schefter
NFL Analyst




Adam Schefter's "Around the League" reports and commentaries can be seen regularly on NFL Total Access.

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 25, 2007)

A NEW CARR

After watching the college quarterbacks this weekend and further assessing the potential free-agent class, the Houston Texans came away even more convinced that David Carr will be their quarterback this season.

Up until now, the Texans have said they would listen to offers for Carr, but never have committed to trading him. And upon further review, Texans officials now believe that Carr is their best alternative and they won't be making a trade for Denver's Jake Plummer or any other quarterback.

If a mod reads this, and can place a c in Schefter in the title, it would be appriciated.

How reliable is Schefter? My memory says 'good' but I don't know for sure.

How awkward would it be for the Texans to bring Carr back, now? It just seems that letting David go would be in the best interests of both parties.

Maybe Kubiak & Smith didn't realize the Broncos would play hardball in obtaining Plummer? Maybe they are content with waiting Shanahan out, with Jake getting an outright release? Plummer already knows the offense, there's no real need to get him in early. I just can't believe that bringing Carr back was the plan entering the offseason.

I've always thought David Car is worth more than a 4th rd. pick. if Drew Henson was worth a 3rd, David is worth at least a 2nd. the Texans are either trying to drive his value up or now realize to replace him with a comparable talent it would take at least a late 1st early 2nd.

I still beleive the Texans are trying to find a way to draft Kevin Kolb.

Wow. Even though this isn't official its sounds like its most likely true. I was sure he'd be traded but deep down i think he's McNair's boy and won't be going anywhere.

I would agree.
If the Texans thought the retain DC/pass on VY decisions were controversial
last year after the disappointing season Carr had coupled with Youngs ROY season were controversial, this year could be even more of a PR firestorm if Carr were to start. And they've got to sell some tickets before the season begins, and this year there is the real possibility of some local TV blackouts.

Could be based on Brady Quinn's performance at the combine. SI reports it was subpar and that the QB lost a lot of ground there:

Quote:
scouts were astonished Brady Quinn decided the leave the combine without throwing in the RCA Dome. This comes on the heals of the phantom injury that forced Quinn to withdraw from the Senior Bowl three days before the event began. Quinn's draft stock has taken a major hit at the combine. There are questions about his decision making on and off the field as well as his leadership skills.

I think that's bull....


Neither VY nor Leinart worked out at the combine...Atleast Brady Quinn got in there and bench pressed...He actually did pretty well...

I watched a good part of the combine coverage, and nothing I saw indicated Quinn had lost any ground....

Well, this is certainly good news. In addition to this story, there are other very credible NFL writers citing good sources that Jake Plummer will likely be traded, rather than cut, from Denver, and the Texans are bowing out of the potential bidding for Plummer. This increases the liklihood that David is going to camp as the Texans starting QB in 2007.

Do you have some links to these articles? I'm not questioning their existence, I (and others) would just like to read them.

No, its because they realize there is no better option. Now lets get off the Carr subject once and for all.

Thanks for the update. I have no doubt that Carr is going to be the man next year - it is certainly going to be interesting...

Default Re: Adam Schefter reports Carr will not be leaving Houston

If the Texans keep Carr, they would have to start him as they can't possibly
pay him his contract if he's only a backup, and no way Carr will restructure at
this point given all he's gone thru and the limitations to his future here.
But I dunno, because of the way they handled last year when they passed on
Vince Young, and Reggie Bush, who would have been
a PR coup and certainly made a contribution to our struggling offense, for
Mario, maybe they are really this clueless and insensitive about public relations with the fan base ?
I dunno, but after the Texans go back and forth with this Carr issue and then ultimately keep him for the 2007 season - WOW ! I'd have to say that McNair and his FO are just tonedeaf.

No biggie... this just means Carr better perform come camp.

I expect the Texans to draft Kolb and put the pressure on David.

Look, I like Kevin Kolb as much as anyone. But, he's not going to press for a starting job in the NFL as a rookie.

BTW, Kolb has an ESPN chat scheduled for 2 p.m. CST.
