Carr and the Giants tentatively reached their agreement last week but needed time before announcing it. It is for one year, and $925,000.||||||| Carr was Manning's backup quarterback in 2008 and `09. He played in three games the first season and in six games in 2009 and in those two seasons, he completed 33 of 42 passes (78.6 percent) for 340 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Posted March 15, 2010
The 49ers have signed Carr to a two-year deal. General manager Scot McCloughan said Monday that Carr will help provide depth at quarterback.||||||| Coach Mike Singletary has repeatedly said 2005 No. 1 pick Alex Smith is the starter, but didn't rule out signing an experienced quarterback who could push Smith and challenge for playing time. Carr, an eight-year NFL veteran, was the top draft pick in 2002 out of Fresno State. He spent the past two seasons as a backup to Eli Manning with the New York Giants.
