    I guess I don't know much about this guy. Would he be primarily an ST player?

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    He could definitely be a #3 or #4 CB who plays in nickels and dimes, he wasn't a starter for Tennessee but he started a few games due to injury and looked alright to my eye when he was in there. He does "belong on the field", he's not a scrub.

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    From what I gather, Carr looks like he was the dime back in a very good Tennessee defensive backfield. He had 29 tackles, a pick, and led the team in passes defended twice this season. He must have been picked on plenty playing alongside Finnegan and Griffin, seems to have done ok.

    Also, he is an hardcore reader, he loves Woody Allen movies and he is learning magic.

    (the second paragraph was not a joke)

    You don't want an avid reader. He'll notice right away how

    low the salary is on the contract he is offered.

    Jag, bodden or springs or just draft a nice rookie no point of wasteing a roster spot on carr.

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    I thought that said David Carr for a second and almost sh!t myself.

    More CB's competing the better...last year it was pretty much inked in as Bryant and Hobbs, and then Bryant got run over in the preseason game and we had to scramble and start a very poor Deltha O'Neal. Hopefully this year we have a good healthy competition for the starting CB and S spots, and some cream rises to the top. No late August starters, and no injuries, please.

    Michael Scott went to Magic Camp, and he turned out fine. Sounds good to me!

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    It appears as if the free agent corner backs are in high demand this year. Former busts and older players are getting 3+ millions per year instead of vet. minimum of ~700K. Could this be due to cb's in the draft not impressing scouts during the combine week ?

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    Don't know or care if they sign this guy, but man I'd love to see them draft/sign a premiere return specialist. Hobbs is good on kicks, but hate to see him out there, and I can't remember the last time the Pats broke off a 30+ punt return, though Welker might have done it once last year. (?)

    As far as CBs, they really need to make a move quick on either Bodden or Springs. Once they are gone, IMO, there will be no starting caliber CBs on the market and it's rookie city, sweetheart ...

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    Don't hold your breath waiting for a good cornerback to sign. The

    most the Patriots paid last year for a free agent cornerback was

    one million dollars for Deltha O'Neil.

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    It isn't looking like we will get a big money CB but your argument doesn't work given the money we spent on WR in 2006 only to get Welker and Moss for 2007.

    Don't forget the post-draft sales!

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    Well, with Greer now signing in NO, it's Bodden, Springs or bust for FA CBs. As was just noted, BB learns from his personnel mistakes, so hopefully he doesn't go K-Mart on CB.

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    Good call, TB. Welker had one PR over 40 last season: Wes Welker: Career Stats

    I also would love to see the Pats get a return specialist to take pressure off of Welker, Hobbs and Faulk. Slater will get another chance, but I didn't see much last year.

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    Slater could develop into a decent KR if he ever works up the nerve to deviate from a straight line, but not sure he could be the solution at PR.

    Re: Pats hosting Chris Carr

    well I guess so far we've found out the Pats think the crop of CB's is lousy. I see the trading up for a cb at this point and adressing lb with a 2nd rounder.
