The Charlotte Observer reports that former Texans QB David Carr has agreed to a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers. Carr had recently visited Seattle, but the scuttlebutt seems to be that he has a better chance of getting playing time behind Jake Delhomme than Matt Hasselbeck. The article says that the Panthers "obviously don't view Carr as the typical backup". Whether or not Delhomme's job would be in jeopardy if he struggles, Carr's certainly a better backup option than Chris Weinke. Carolina now has the first two players selected in the 2002 NFL Draft - one spot after the Texans made Carr the #1 overall pick and the first in the franchise's history, the Panthers selected DE Julius Peppers. The third overall pick in the '02 draft, Joey Harrington, also visited Carolina, according to the linked article.

Minor weaknesses dot these teams. Except for Arizona, which needs to bring in more help to really run Bruce Arians' offense.
