2011 NFL Free Agency: David Carr Back To Giants

David Carr, backup quarterback for the New York Giants in 2008 and 2009, tweeted just moments ago that he will be returning to the team.

NY, round 2, can't wait to get back, Great Staff, Great Players, Best Fans in the game...and what an amazing city. 2much 2 pass up

Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger tweeted that this does not necessarily mean that current backup Sage Rosenfels is out of a job. Potentially, that would indicate the Giants might keep three active quarterbacks -- something they have not done the past couple of seasons.

Carr left the Giants as a free agent prior to last season, hoping to find a team where he would have an opportunity to start. He went to the San Francisco 49ers, but that did not work out well for the nine-year veteran. He played in just one game, completing five-of 13 passes.

In his two seasons with the Giants Carr played in nine games, completing 30-of-45 passes with three touchdowns.
