David Carr Free-Agent Signing: Backup QB Returning To New York Giants

The New York Giants found their backup quarterback on Wednesday. They did not need to cast a wide net as they re-signed David Carr to backup Eli Manning. Details of the deal with Carr were unknown.

Many assumed that Carr would bolt for Tampa Bay, joining former Giants quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan, who is now the offensive coordinator there.

Carr did not play a snap in the regular season last year. He beat out Sage Rosenfels for the backup job out of camp last August.

This is actually Carr's second stint with the Giants. He spent two seasons in New York in 2008 and 2009. During that two-year period he played in nine games as a foot injury bothered Eli Manning. Carr is 32.
