2013 NFL Free Agency: David Carr, Kenny Phillips, Cullen Jenkins

David Carr - Jim Rogash

New York Giants' backup quarterback David Carr intends to test free agency, according to various reports.

Here are some Friday afternoon NFL free agency notes involving the New York Giants, including the news that backup quarterback David Carr intends to test free agency.

Let's begin, though, with a Cullen Jenkins update. Jenkins, the veteran defensive tackle released earlier in the week by the Philadelphia Eagles, had a visit scheduled with the Giants today. Not a peep about that visit has come from the Meadowlands.

The only thing we do know about Jenkins right now is that the Green Bay Packers, where he spent the first seven seasons of his career, have no interest in a reunion. They do, however, reportedly have interest in former Giant Chris Canty.

Now, on to Carr. The 33-year-old wants "to see if he can find a better opportunity to play elsewhere," according to Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News. Vacchiano and Mike Garafolo both indicated that the most likely spot would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where former Giants' quarterbacks coach Mike Sullivan is offensive coordinator. Losing Carr would leave the Giants with only Curtis Painter as a potential backup for Eli Manning.

The Giants have also reportedly made an offer to Kenny Phillips, though the expectation seems to be that he will seek a better one on the open market.
