The team's interest in the 34-year-old Carr is tied to the potential of drafting his brother Derek, the Fresno State quarterback who looms as a first-round target for general manager Ray Farmer.
David said: "I know quarterbacks and I know veteran guys come in a lot of times and they don't want the young guy to play. They're going to be a teammate, but are they going to go to that next level to make sure this kid really succeeds? I can guarantee you that's the case with us."
In his latest mock draft, Jeremiah doesn't see Derek making it past the Arizona Cardinals at No. 20. We'll find out Thursday night how this plays out, but the Browns clearly loom as a surefire candidate to draft a quarterback to compete with Brian Hoyer and this ballooning list of gray-bearded journeymen.
