    I am reading that the Dolphins are in serious discussions with Texans about David Carr. Perhaps the Trent Green interest is waning in recent days...maybe recent hours is more appropriate.

    Looks like Culpepper is not going to be back with the Dolphins. That's the vibe I'm getting. Take it for what it is worth. We have a GM now in Randy Meuller. He's a number guy and also very rational. He knows it makes no sense to Pay Culpepper 50 million over the next 5 years. I think thus far he and Cameron have been working very well together.

    That leaves us with just one QB...Cleo Lemon.

    I think we will know something as soon as today, but I think Dolphin/Texans negotians are somewhat "advanced" at this point.

    I guess we will go into camp with a Carr/Lemon battle for the starting job, and perhaps we'll draft a QB to have waiting in the wings. Culpepper might end up in Oakland???

    The one caveat to all this is that the Dolphins are using the discussions about Carr as a bluff to try to get Trent Green to redo his contract and come to the Dolphins??

    Some reports I heard was that a deal has been in place for Carr all we where waiting on was the Schaub deal to be finilized, thats done so Carr will more then likely be out of Hou. by the end of next week. He could headed your way we shall see.

    And details of the trade on your end?(i.e. whats Hou getting for Carr.)

    I'd rather he goes to Miami than Oakland. I think he'd be in another no-win situation in Oakland. (literally and figuratively)

    I dunno why the Dolphins would be trying to work out a deal with the Texans
    now when they could wait for them to release Carr and work out the same
    deal without having to surrender a Draft pick to the Texans ? Unless you know
    of another team that is also seriously interested in Carr ?

    shhhhh don't give miami any ideas. We need more picks and we have to get something for carr even if it is a second day pick who knows.... maybe a 6th pick and the person we pick up with that pick is the next marcus colston....

    My take on this is that if Oakland and Miami, along with any other team that may be in the run for a QB before the draft, is serious about Carr then they have to work something with the Texans before he gets cut or risk losing what could possibly be the last notable QB on the market to a team Carr gets to choose from.

    I beleive Carr would rather be a Raider therefor forcing Miami's hand.

    At least he would be going to a team I like as appose to say Jacksonville.

    That would be a nightmare.

    well the reason is from my understanding is that if carr is simply released then he's probably headed home to oakland...by trading for him miami not only gets him but sends a message to carr that they want him there...after the way things have happened here in houston if they feel he's their guy that's a message they need to send him

    I would be terrified about a potential David Carr - Dom Capers reunion if I were a Dolphins fan.

    Its Carr choice were he goes, and I just happened to look at your Depth chart on ESPN and you guys dont really have a lot of OLineman do you. It looked like you guys dont even have a Center according to your roster on ESPN.:confused:

    Am I the only one seeing the irony in having two QB's, one named Lemon, the other named Carr? :)

    I'll remember never to purchase a vehicle in Florida :)

    Unless you know something we don't, there is no way that "Carr gets the choice" of what team picks up the remainder of his contract.

    Hey Hulk give David our best,I hope he finds a team that fits him and he has a true chance of succeding. I think this move will be best for everyone involved.

    I don't care if he's Carr's jock strap, noone gets an inflated contract, that was an admitted mistake during the Schaub presser, then get your choice as to what team pick's the remainder of the contract up. The only possibility here is that Carr agreed to restructure with the Texans to make him more marketable.

    Im pretty sure if we trade Carr, he has to agree to a new contract to complete any deal...(sign and trade)...
