[url=] ... ice-roster[/url]

He's big and tall...6 foot 6 and 217. I'm excited about this signing...

..... the m.o. on him says he catches everything thrown his way.....maybe he was brought in to show smiley' Bowman how it's done :wink:

We shall see…gotta be an improvement over Davis and Smith at least.

Here's some info that was posted by TBurgess at EP about Greg Carr:

Greg Carr (WR) Height: 6'6" Weight: 216 College: Florida State Conference: ACC Hometown: Reddick, FL High School: North Marion

Positives: Tall and very long arms. Tempting red-zone target on fades or jump balls. Able to concentrate most times in the end zone, even making difficult catches in traffic. Quicker feet than expected, as he can get into and out of out routes fairly quickly given his height. Also shows a bit of shiftiness after the catch. Might not be just a deep ball threat. Can adjust to poorly thrown balls, even low ones.

Negatives: Questionable straight-line speed. Gangly build, lacking any upper body strength. Runs with the ball loose. Already not very quick off the line, he may struggle getting off jams from tough NFL corners. Very inconsistent hands, as he doesn't win as many ball battles as he should given his height. Easy to wrap up or trip up in space. Not much of a threat over the middle. Has the length to block smaller receivers, but is not overly willing and lacks the strength to sustain.

FRESHMAN YEAR Carr played in 12 of 13 games as a true freshman, finishing with 618 receiving yards and leading the team in yards per catch (20.6) and TD receptions (9). His nine TD receptions led the ACC and were the most by an FSU first-year player since Warrick Dunn scored 10 in 1993. He was named All-ACC Second Team.

Carr played in all 13 games and was named All-ACC Second Team for the second straight season. He caught 12 TD passes, the fourth most by a WR in a season in school history. His 72 points trailed only Georgia Tech's Calvin Johnson for most points scored by a WR in the ACC.

Carr started seven of 12 games and had career highs in both receptions (45) and receiving yards (795). However, his TD receptions went from 12 in 2006 to four in '07. Carr became only the sixth player in school history with at least 30 receptions in three consecutive seasons.

In 2008, Carr finished first among FSU players in receiving yards (542) and second in receptions (39). In four seasons, he had 148 receptions, 2,574 receiving yards, and 29 TD. He matched his career high with eight receptions in his final college game, the Champs Sports Bowl.

Carr was eligible to be selected in the 2009 NFL Draft, but went undrafted. Carr signed a free agent contract with the San Diego Chargers. He was waived on Aug. 31, 2009
