Not really - For example, it's understood if any QB is signed by the Colts, we know what his role will be. Yes, that's an extreme example, but I think you have to understand why Carr came to San Francisco despite being wooed by a number of teams; he doesn't want to be a back-up forever.
That being said - he goes to the team that has (1) some of the most up-and-coming talent on offense (and defense) and (2) has a starting QB position to which he can challenge. Think Miami Dolphins under Jay Feidler.
It's a big priority for Carr to change the perception of him around the NFL. After all, if you say the name "David Carr," the first thing that comes to most people's minds is "bust." Carr said he could have remained with the New York Giants, but he wanted to go out and challenge himself.
Carr said he is a much better player now than he was during his five seasons with the expansion Houston Texans because of experience and confidence.
--Also, Carr has spoken with veteran free-agent guard Chester Pitts, who is scheduled to visit the 49ers this week. The played together with the Texans. "He's solid," Carr said. "He'd be a great addition to these guys."
