Derek Carr, the quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders, has agreed to a four-year contract with the New Orleans Saints. The contract is reportedly worth $138 million, with $80 million guaranteed. If confirmed, this would be a significant move for both teams, as the Saints have been looking for a starting quarterback since the retirement of Drew Brees and the Raiders will need to find a new quarterback if Carr does indeed leave.
Carr has been a starting quarterback for the Raiders since 2014 and has been a consistent performer throughout his career. He has thrown for over 4,000 yards in four of the last five seasons and has led the Raiders to the playoffs once during that time. However, he has also been the subject of trade rumors in recent years, with some analysts questioning his ability to lead the Raiders to sustained success.
If the reported contract is accurate, it would make Carr one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, behind only Patrick Mahomes, Dak Prescott, and Russell Wilson. It remains to be seen how this move will impact both the Raiders and the Saints, but it is sure to generate significant interest and speculation from NFL fans and analysts alike.
