Former NFL quarterback David Carr is now an analyst. He has been a huge supported of his brother, Derek Carr, who is currently the QB of the Las Vegas Raiders. Today was the first time I’ve ever heard him say anything that might be construed as him knocking his lil bro.

David Carr thinks the Raiders should have traded for Russell Wilson.

Here’s what Carr said per NFL.com:

“NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that 10-plus teams have reached out to the Seahawks to inquire about Wilson. All this said, no one within the organization has suggested they would trade him, and Wilson hasn’t officially demanded a trade. Wilson wants to stay in Seattle, per his agent, though his agent also said if a trade were considered, Wilson would only consider going to Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas or New Orleans. Thanks to the no-trade clause in his contract, Wilson, like Watson, would have to approve of the suitor.

If I’m one of those four teams, I’m picking up the phone yesterday. He is everything you want in a quarterback, with endless talent, arm strength, poise and intelligence. Plus, he has the kind of ice in his veins that gives his team a chance to win late in games, no matter how great the deficit. He’ll cost a GREAT deal, but the on-field production and leadership you’d get in return would be worth it.”

Now, it is worth noting that Russell Wilson reportedly listed Vegas, Chicago, Dallas and New Orleans as the only places he’d accept a trade to. I think David Carr’s overall point was that if Russell Wilson wants to be traded to your team, you go for it. He wasn’t really trying to throw a dig at his brother. However, it is a little interesting nonetheless.

Maybe David Carr should have re-thought his word choice. Derek Carr is a pretty solid QB, too.
