The Raiders appear to be focused on adding another quarterback, even if it’s not Josh Freeman. Multiple reports have indicated that the Raiders are one of the favorites to sign Freeman, but Carr could be a contingency option if Freeman elects to sign elsewhere.
Carr was drafted No. 1 overall by the Texans during their expansion year, but he never lived up to his draft status and has been a backup for the Giants in recent years.
As for Matt Flynn, it’s probably a safe assumption that the Raiders have given up on him being viable option at quarterback. Flynn will still make his salary for the remainder of the season, but he’s an obvious candidate to be on the chopping block.
Should Flynn become a free agent, it will be interesting to see if he returns to the Packers.
