QB David Carr, who was the first overall pick in the 2002 draft, signed a 1-year contract with the Giants yesterday. The contract is worth $1 million, but includes bonus opportunities based on playing time.
Carr will compete behind Giants QB Anthony Wright for the backup to Eli Manning.
Carr has been known for getting beat up on the field due to horrible offensive lines. In 2002, Carr became the most-sacked quarterback in the history of the NFL, when he was sacked over seventy times.
The Giants now have two quarterbacks (Manning, Carr) on their roster that were selected first overall in the year they were drafted
