While Albert Haynesworth is going to cost the Titans a fortune for a possible return, Chris Carr is going to cost them as well. A lot less. Today’s Nashville City Paper talks about Carr coming back in 2009 as a free agent.
The Tennessee Titans are in the process of trying to get return man Chris Carr to … return. As in return to the team potentially before he hits unrestricted free agency along with 13 other teammates on Feb. 27. The Titans are actively in discussions with a number of their free agents who can hit the open market in two weeks, according to general manager Mike Reinfeldt. Carr came to Tennessee last year as a restricted free agent from the Oakland Raiders, signing a one-year deal with Tennessee worth around $1.8 million.
His play in 2008 helped the Titans’ kickoff return game ascend to the top of the NFL, something that has made Carr a player on Tennessee’s wish list to retain. In fact, according to Andrew Baker, Carr’s agent, there is a chance Carr could be one of the players Tennessee strikes a deal with before the free agency period begins Feb. 27.
