Raiders: Why Derek Carr to the Saints makes sense
Former Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr has agreed to 4-year deal with the New Orleans Saints and here are 5 reasons why it makes sense.
After a brief courting period that involved a couple visits, former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is all set to sign a four-year deal with the New Orleans Saints. The Saints were the only team that Carr visited while he was still a member of the Raiders and aside from a quick visit with the New York Jets, they were always the primary suitor for his services.
There were a few other teams that we had linked Carr to including the Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Indianapolis Colts but for various reasons they were not the best fit for the veteran quarterback. Derek’s brother David told the world on NFL Network that Derek was looking for a stable team with an established head coach and ownership group because of all the turmoil that he faced while with the Raiders and most of the other teams did not fit that criteria.
In the next few slides we will deep dive into the reasons why Carr’s move to New Orleans is the best outcome for all parties and why it especially makes sense for him in this stage of his career. This move also officially closes the book on the Derek Carr era in Las Vegas for good and now that he’s in the NFC we can wish him the best of luck, or you can root against him if you want to but either way, he’s a Saint now.
