Giants re-sign backup QB Carr

Not long after Tim Tebow became the most celebrated backup quarterback in New York, the Giants officially re-signed their backup, David Carr.

Carr agreed to return last week but signed his deal Thursday.

"It's just natural for me," Carr said of the Giants' offense in a team release. "I feel really comfortable in it. I feel really comfortable here. I know that if given the opportunity and put in the position to play on this team, I would do well. That's also a comforting feeling knowing that if you get into the game, you're in there with the world champions, so how can you go wrong?"

Carr re-joined the Giants in 2011 after being with the Niners. He served as Eli Manning’s backup in 2008 and 2009.

During his 10-year career, the former No. 1 overall pick has completed 59.7 percent of his passes for 14,433 yards, 65 touchdowns and 71 interceptions.

While he did not play last season, Carr played a valuable role on the scout team to help prepare the defense each week.
