Derek Carr’s relationship with the Raiders and their coach Josh McDaniels soured quickly after a promising start. When McDaniels took over as the Raiders’ head coach last year, he immediately showed his faith in Carr by signing him to a three-year contract extension. However, as the season progressed, it became clear that the coach and the quarterback were not on the same page. The Raiders decided to cut ties with Carr and look for a better long-term solution at quarterback.

Carr finds his way to his old coach

Derek Carr’s tenure with the Raiders was full of highs and lows. He set franchise records for passing yards and touchdowns, but he also failed to win a playoff game in eight seasons. The Raiders finally parted ways with him this offseason, hoping to save money and find a better fit for coach Josh McDaniels. Carr had the power to veto any trade offers, thanks to his no-trade clause, and he did just that when the Saints came calling, but fate had other plans for him.

The Saints welcomed him as their new quarterback on March 11, 2023, praising his leadership and Pro Bowl skills.
