Dolphins, Possibly Raiders Chasing D. Carr
The Miami Dolphins reportedly are among the teams interested in trading for David Carr, the former top overall selection in the NFL draft by the Houston Texans.
Texans General Manager Rick Smith said at Thursday's introductory news conference for Matt Schaub, the club's new starting quarterback obtained in a trade Wednesday with the Atlanta Falcons, that the team hoped to trade Carr within days.
The Miami Herald reported that the Dolphins have opened trade talks with the Texans. The Dolphins apparently are looking for a quarterback to vie with Daunte Culpepper and Cleo Lemon for the starting job. The Palm Beach Post reported this week that the Dolphins were close to sending a seventh-round draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for Trent Green but first needed the veteran quarterback to agree to reduce his $7.2 million salary for next season to something near the veteran's minimum.
The Oakland Raiders also are viewed as a potential suitor for Carr. The Raiders have only two quarterbacks, Andrew Walter and the just-signed Josh Booty, on their roster. They have the top overall choice in the draft and could use it on LSU quarterback JaMarcus Russell, and they apparently have talked to the Green Bay Packers about a trade that would send wide receiver Randy Moss to Green Bay for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
