<!-- end mod-article-title --> <!-- begin story body --> <!-- template inline -->SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=sfo) have signed free agent quarterback David Carr (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3529) to a two-year deal and agreed to terms with Detroit on a trade that would send backup quarterback Shaun Hill (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4260) to the Lions for a 2011 draft pick.

NFC West

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/columnists/sando_mike_m.jpg ESPN.com's Mike Sando writes about all things NFC West in his division blog (http://myespn.go.com/blogs/nfcwest).
Network: NFL Nation (http://myespn.go.com/blogs/nflnation)



<!-- end sidebar table -->General manager Scot McCloughan said Monday that Carr will provide depth at quarterback. "We added a player at a position of need and of huge importance to us," McCloughan said in a statement.
Carr, an eight-year NFL veteran, was drafted No. 1 overall by the Houston Texans (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou) in 2002. He spent the past two seasons as a backup to Eli Manning (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5526) with the New York Giants (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyg).
Carr, who last started a game in 2007 for the Carolina Panthers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=car), has completed 1,346 passes for 14,366 yards and 65 touchdowns in his career.
49ers coach Mike Singletary has repeatedly said 2005 No. 1 pick Alex Smith (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8416) is the starter, but didn't rule out signing an experienced quarterback who could push Smith and challenge for playing time.
Smith took over for Hill at halftime Oct. 25 at Houston and started the rest of the way for San Francisco, which finished 8-8 and ended a franchise-worst stretch of six straight losing seasons.
The 49ers would receive an undisclosed 2011 draft pick in return for Hill.

First McNabb and now Carr. They are stacked at QB.

Fake, misspelled "ESPN" report that fooled Michael Smith.

The Lions are not sitting on their hands this offseason. They should win at least 3 games this year.
