David Carr hopes to return to the NFL, ideally backing up Derek, according to the Houston Chronicle. While Derek Carr isn't going to be the top pick, he could be a first-round selection who plays as a rookie. David's idea for a comeback started when Derek moved in to train after his season was over at Fresno State.

The odds of the older Carr getting a contract offer aren't great. The odds on him landing on the same team as his brother are infinitesimal. But it would make for a great story.

It would be almost as good a plot as the Houston Texans going back to the Carr family for a quarterback.
