Remember when we got to see this every Saturday?
Austin Carr made his first appearance in an NFL game Thursday night and it did not take the former Biletnikoff finalist long to make his presence felt.
Late in the second quarter, Carr got open in the back of the end zone and went way up to snag a Jimmy Garoppolo touchdown pass. Take a look:

It’s almost like he did this all season long against solid to really good Big Ten secondaries last year! Yet, he went undrafted, and the Patriots (of course...the Patriots) snatched him up.
Carr, who caught 5 passes for 44 yards in the first half, might have a real shot at making the 53-man roster if he keeps making plays like this.
