The New Jersey Star Ledger and the Cleveland Plain Dealer have reported that free agent quarterback David Carr has agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers.
And...surprise! It appears Carr's headed West to compete for a starting job.
Star Ledger New York Giants beat writer Mike Garafalo reported that Carr's deal with the 49ers was "made official" on Sunday evening. The former No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Texans spent the two seasons behind Eli Manning. The New Jersey newspaper report stated that Carr leaves his back-up job in New York to "compete with another former No. 1 overall draft pick—Alex Smith—for the 49ers starting job."
The Cleveland newspaper report came after the Browns courted Carr with the promise he would be given a chance to start. The Plain Dealer , however, reported that Carr would be going to the 49ers as a back-up to Smith.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Sunday afternoon that "a few sites are reporting that quarterback David Carr has agreed to a contract with the 49ers."
