Sport David Carr chides Jameis Winston for training choices
10 Best NFL Free Agents Remaining
The top 10 NFL free agents still on the market.
One is a former first overall pick whose career as a starter ended after five years. The other is a former first overall pick whose career as a starter may be ending after five years, but he’s trying his best to keep that from happening.
On Thursday, they engaged in a back-and-forth on Twitter.
Patriots cut QB Cody Kessler, leaving Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as only options on roster
The New England Patriots could be poised to add another quarterback, possibly in the draft, after releasing Cody Kessler.Moving on from Tom Brady won’t be easy and it makes sense for the Patriots to enter this 2020 season with three quarterbacks in training camp. There were benefits to having Kessler in camp. He had a year in the Patriots system and worked with Stidham last season. The 26-year-old also has made 12 career starts.
It started when video of a workout regimen that consisted of free-agent quarterbackdodging an oversized speed bag, swung in his direction by a trainer. David Carr, who works as an analyst with the NFL, called Winston out for the exercise.
“Stop paying your friends to train you,” Carr said. “Get some help. I’ve been in a lot of collapsing pockets and never once did I have defenders just flying at my head.” Carr capped his message with a crying laughter emoji.
Before Winston could respond, former NFL quarterback Danny Kanell chimed in.
“,” Kanell told Carr. “He’s working his butt off to get another shot. I think he gets it too and proves a lot of his critics wrong.”
“He will get another shot,” Carr responded. “The exercise is still completely useless. Two things can be true. In fact, not saying something just insures [sic] that he continues doing it or worse, younger players copy it.”
The best fits for 6 NFL free agents still on the market
There are different reasons high-profile free agents like Jadeveon Clowney, Cam Newton, and Everson Griffen remain available.
Replied Kanell, “Half the exercises at the combine are useless too.. It’s not like it’s giving anyone bad habits!”
That’s when Jameis got involved, with a request for Carr.
“Hey bro I have nothing but love for you!” Winston said to Carr. “
Winston added a clip of a play capped by the former Buccaneers quarterback having the awareness to slide under a hit, demonstrating (in his view) the value of the exercise.
Regardless of whether the exercise actually helps Winston, Carr’s decision to call Winston out seems odd, and hypocritical. Carr and his brother, Derek, resent criticism of any kind, routinely blocking on social media anyone who says anything they don’t like. To the extent that current and former NFL quarterbacks are members of a fraternity, David Carr arguably should raise his concerns privately, or say nothing.

Then again, maybe David has decided to take shots at Jameis because David realizes that Winston has a higher ceiling at the quarterback position than Derek, and that maybe Raiders coach Jon Gruden and G.M. Mike Mayock will eventually figure that out.
