The New Orleans Saints are one of the franchises that are hopping back on the quarterback carousel during the 2023 off-season. They ended the Jameis Winston experiment last season when he was injured and unable to reclaim the starting job from Andy Dalton. With Dalton now heading into free agency, the team is on the search for a new starting option.
One player who has been heavily linked to the Saints is Derek Carr. New Orleans was the only team reported to have gained permission to talk to Carr about joining the team as the Las Vegas Raiders are moving on from him.
Armed with a full no-trade clause, Carr can block any trade that the Raiders attempt to make involving him. It sounds like he is using that ability as he won’t be traded and will wait for the Raiders to release him, making him a free agent.
