A former UT Martin quarterback is headed to the Big Apple to follow his NFL dream. Derek Carr is headed to New York to participate in a tryout over the weekend for a spot on the New York Giants roster.
The Giants rookie mini camp starts tomorrow, and runs through Saturday.
Carr stuffed the stat sheet last season, throwing seven touchdowns in not one, but two games for the Skyhawks. Carr was a second-team all OVC selection, Carr threw for 3,276 yards, and was the only OVCer to throw for 3,000 yards and fewer than 10 interceptions.
