    Also he was consistent on his returns. His numbers weren't inflated by TD returns (which sucks in one way but proves he is consistent in another).

    Carr is a big reason why we were good this year. Having a consistent returner is important. He's no Asante Samuel as a DB, but he is tops in kick returning IMO.
    He is inexpensive, and a lot better than what we've had as a kick returner since Mason, on a team that historically has sucked at returns.

    The Pacman curse is gone. Finnegan makes up for his CB play, and Carr does the returns. He doesn't get the TDs, but he's more valuable than Hester. Consistency matters, and Hester does NOT have that.

    Agree on all counts. He would be an excellent sign for another 2-3 years at ~2mil a year. Over 3M/year and let him walk...

    I'm a big proponent of speed. It makes up for a lot of problems. If we wants a bigger role, I think his speed gives him a look see. But it should be limited like Mason was when he first started with the Titans. Keep in a few more plays and see how he does, but let him do what we know he does best, return kicks.

    he's not a guy who will hit a lot of home runs, but he definitely hits doubles consistently.

    I really want him to stay a titan. he is kinda like cortland with the speed and accelaration. I thinkk he will develop into a good CB. all he needs is time.

    No we didn't. Carr was a RFA for the raiders. We made him an offer high enough over the tender to take him from the raiders. carr made $2M in 08.

    Not really he has already been in the league for 4 years. His value for us is increased if we don't keep fuller because carr will likely be the NB. Also our 2nd best KR guy is griffen who already starts at FS and covers punts.

    Note that justin miller is a FA and a first rate KR guy who is a comparable CB. Miller could do KRs and we have hawkins for punts.

    I'd like for Carr to sign here as well, but only as a return man.

    Why does he want to start anyway? Did he forget the two defensive pass interference calls against the Bretts which contributed to that *** whoopin we received..

    If he's gone, I wouldn't mind Justin Miller taking his place.
