"We're just going to keep turning over, flipping over stones and bringing in a lot of people," Sparano said. "And it probably won't change for two to three years. Quincy is here and we will have a workout with Quincy."
"I have been pleased with the quarterbacks, and I think the competition is really good," Sparano said. "It just means we have to make sure we're doing our due diligence on what's available."
"I'm sure it makes sense that you'd be interested because we know the guy," Sparano said. "We know him. We've coached him. Bill's coached him for years, I've had him for four or five years down there in Dallas."
Carter's best season was in 2003 when he led the Cowboys to a 10-6 record and a playoff berth. He completed 292 of 505 passes for 3,302 yards and 17 touchdowns with 21 interceptions, and rushed for 257 yards and two touchdowns.
"Quincy was athletic. He can move, and he can make some plays that way," Sparano said. "He was an intelligent guy and a pretty good motivator."
