While the Houston Texans are keeping a close eye on the situation with Broncos backup QB Jake Plummer, the future for current Houston QB David Carr is not very clear. Carr has two years left on his deal that is set to pay him $5.5 mil this year and $6 mil next year. At 28 years old, he clearly has not been the QB that the Texans thought they were getting with their very first pick, despite the fact many think he would thrive in a system that would allow him some time to throw the football.
In five seasons as the Texans starter, Carr has been sacked a whopping 249 times, or an average of 49.8 times per season. He has completed 60 percent of his passes in those five seasons, and thrown 59 touchdowns and 65 interceptions. His best season may have been his last, as he got off to a hot start, but defenses adjusted and by the end of the year there were many question marks about Carr’s future with the team.
Reports say that while the Texans and former Broncos offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, now the Houston coach, really want to take a look at Plummer, Carr has been inquired about by a few teams. Houston is looking to snatch a third-round pick for Carr that could turn into a second-round pick if he does well with his new team. This could come down to being a draft day deal, as there is plenty of time for teams to look at free agents before anyone makes a deal for the former number one pick.
