Chris Carr

NASHVILLE, TN, March 28, 2008 –** The Tennessee Titans have signed Oakland Raiders restricted free agent cornerback/kick returner Chris Carr to an offer sheet.

Upon receipt of the signed offer sheet, the Raiders will have seven days to select one of two options – match the contract or decline to match, thereby making the contract with the Titans valid.  Should Oakland decline to match the offer, Tennessee will not have to provide a draft pick as compensation because he was tendered at a level that only guaranteed the Raiders a "right of first refusal."  

In three NFL seasons, Carr (5-10, 180) has played in 48 NFL contests with four starts.  His career totals include 39 tackles, four fumble recoveries and five pass defensed, including a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in 2006.  He is an accomplished kickoff and punt returner as well, ranking as the Raiders' all-time leader in career kickoff returns (201) and kickoff return yards (4,841).

The Oakland Raiders have seven days to match the offer sheet on cornerback/kick returner Chris Carr.

In 2007, Carr appeared in all 16 games for the third consecutive campaign and saw his most extensive action at cornerback, registering a career-best 24 tackles.  In 2006, he set career-highs with 1,762 kickoff return yards and a 25.5-yard kickoff return average.

Carr joined the Raiders as an undrafted free agent from Boise State in 2005. A four-year letter winner for the Broncos, he was an All-Western Athletic Conference pick as a safety and kick returner as a senior and finished his career as the active NCAA career leader in punt return average (19.8).  A native of Reno, Nev., Carr was a three-time all-state running back at McQueen High School.
