Saints sign quarterback Derek Carr

According to the Canadian Press on Tuesday, the New Orleans Saints have signed quarterback Derek Carr of Fresno, California. The terms of the contract are four years, and close to $150 million.

The Saints are the second National Football League franchise Carr has played for. He previously played nine seasons in the Raiders organization (six seasons in Oakland from 2014 to 2019, and the last three seasons in Las Vegas from 2020 to 2022).

This past season, Carr was selected to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time. He completed 305 passes for 502 attempts for 3522 passing yards and 24 passing touchdowns compared to 14 interceptions. Carr also had 24 rushes for 102 yards. Carr was previously selected to the Pro Bowl in 2015, 2016, and 2017.

The Raiders moved on from Carr near the end of the regular season. Jarrett Stidham of Corbin, Kentucky started the Raiders’s last two games of the season in Las Vegas losses to the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Carr was released by the Raiders on February 14, 2023. The Saints were one of five NFL teams we believed were considering signing him. New Orleans was joined by Washington, Carolina, Tampa Bay and the New York Jets.

Expectations were high for the Raiders in 2022. The team had traded for five-time Pro Bowler Davante Adams in a deal with the Green Bay Packers in the offseason. Despite the fact that Adams still led the NFL this past season with 14 touchdown catches, the Raiders missed the playoffs with a record of six wins and 11 losses.

The major problem for the Raiders this season was not necessarily their offense. It was their defense. Las Vegas gave up 418 points, the third most points allowed in the American Football Conference. Only the Indianapolis Colts (427 points) and Houston Texans (420 points) gave up more points than the Raiders.
