So it was only slightly surprising that the ex-Fresno State star, appearing at a news conference, said a visit to the fast-food chain might be in order after he signed a five-year, $125 million contract extension.
A reporter prompted the discussion after asking what was one of the first things Carr was going to do with all that money?
“Chick-fil-A,” Carr said. “I’ve been eating clean. We got (Director of Nutrition) Ladd (Harris) here, he’s been having me eat clean. I’ll probably get Chick-fil- A.”
Might this be the start of a beautiful friendship? A partnership as a spokesman for the Atlanta franchise?
Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy took notice and tweeted at Carr on Saturday morning.
It seems like a natural match, given the restaurant chain’s religious underpinnings (they close Sunday in part to allow employees to worship) and the major role faith plays in Carr’s life.
Several hours later, Carr tweeted back.
We’ll see if they can put something together.
