Derek Carr’s tenure with the Las Vegas Raiders didn’t quite finish in the best way possible. The team wanted to trade him, but the rest of the league knew that he was going to be released anyways, so they waited for him to be cut.
Once he got released, the Saints immediately made a move for him. The NFC South squad offered him a lucrative deal, and the team has definitely improved with him leading the offense.
