A new Carr in Carolina

The Carolina Panthers and free agent QB David Carr agreed to a two-year deal on Friday. The deal is reportedly worth $6 million, including a $3 million signing bonus.

Carr, the first pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, comes to the Panthers after posting a career-best 68.3% completion percentage last season. Over his 5-year career, Carr has posted a 75.5 QB rating, thrown 59 touchdowns and 65 interceptions.

"Jake's (Delhomme) our starter, but we wanted to get the quarterback position as deep as possible and we feel David Carr is a talented quarterback," Panthers General Manager Marty Hurney said on Friday. "We want someone who can come in and give us the best chance to win. David felt comfortable with the situation and the people he met, and we're pleased he did."
