"I think that both sides wanted it to get done," Carr said Friday. "It was two family members just figuring out how to get along, and we did. We figured out a way to do it so that we have the opportunity to sign the other guys that I think are important to this organization. That was really important to me, not just to take every single dime that we could."
Carr, who is entering the last year of his contract, has said if he does not have an extension before training camp starts at the end of July, he would play out the final year of his rookie deal in 2017.
