“Derek Carr’s NFL Free Agency Saga: Saints Closing in on Four-Year Contract as Jets Lose QB Option”

New Orleans, LA- Derek Carr, the former quarterback of the Las Vegas Raiders, is reportedly closing in on a four-year contract with the New Orleans Saints. According to NFL.com, the deal is expected to be worth over $100 million.

Despite the rumors that Carr had a “slight lean” towards the New York Jets, as reported by NBC Sports, he ultimately chose the Saints. Sports Illustrated reported that Carr was drawn to their strong offensive line and the chance to work with head coach Sean Payton.

The signing of Carr could not come at a better time for the Saints, who currently find themselves $18 million over the salary cap, as reported by Canal Street Chronicles. With the departure of Drew Brees, the Saints have been in need of a new starting quarterback.

The news of Carr’s signing with the Saints was a disappointment to the Jets, who were looking to add a new quarterback to their roster. The New York Post reported that they have now lost their QB option.
