Derek Carr signing 4-year deal with Saints

The New Orleans Saints are signing quarterback Derek Carr to a four-year contract, per multiple reports.

What It Means:

Carr will reunite with Saints head coach Dennis Allen, who drafted him with the No. 36 pick in 2014 as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. He won't have Davante Adams to throw it up to anymore, but Carr will still benefit from having Chris Olave and Alvin Kamara on offense. Rashid Shaheed should get a boost with Carr, especially if the Saints decide to move on from Michael Thomas this offseason.

Carr averaged 15.5 FanDuel points per game last season, finishing 20th among quarterbacks that made multiple starts. He ranked 15th in Passing Net Expected points per drop back out of the 47 quarterbacks with 100-plus attempts. However, Carr had a career-high 2.8% interception rate that was 27th out of 33 qualifiers. He also had the worst completion percentage (60.8) since his rookie season (58.1), down from 66.1% in the seven years in-between.
