Texans Say They're Trying to Trade Carr
As the Houston Texans officially introduced new quarterback Matt Schaub at a news conference today, General Manager Rick Smith said the team is attempting to trade former starter David Carr.
The Texans have been listening to trade offers all offseason for Carr, the top overall selection in the 2002 NFL draft. Now it's clear, with Schaub taking over as the starter, that the club will either trade or release Carr. The Texans traded two second-round draft choices to the Atlanta Falcons, and switched first-round draft positions with them, to obtain Schaub and signed him to a six-year, $48 million contract that includes $7 million in guaranteed money.
"Matt is our starting quarterback," Smith said. "We're trying to help David find another place. We're trying to trade him today, maybe the next couple of days."
Carr threw 65 interceptions and was sacked 249 times in five seasons as the Texans' starter.
