Quarterback Derek Carr was a free agent for a week. The unrestricted free agent market opens in less than three weeks.
Time, as they say, is wasted.
Carr’s brother, David, said Monday on NFL Network that Derek is nonetheless planning to take his time.
“It will be a long processsaid David Carr, via NFL.com. “He wants to do his due diligence and see as many places as possible to get a sense of where he’s going best.”
That’s fine, but his head start in the rest of the market is going to evaporate quickly, especially with Joint Scouting (a/k/a Tampering Central) after only one week. That’s when teams and impending free agents begin to seriously talk turkey.
