BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Derek Carr is joining the New Orleans Saints on a multi-year deal, the team announced Monday.
Carr, the Bakersfield native, is leaving the Las Vegas Raiders and joining the Saints on a four-year. Carr tweeted “Who dat” Monday morning, confirming his joining the team. The Saints confirmed the signing Monday afternoon.
The move reunites Carr with head coach Dennis Allen, who coached him during his rookie season with the Raiders.
Carr spent his entire professional career with the ‘Silver and Black,’ becoming the team’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdown passes. Carr is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and finished third in NFL MVP voting in 2016.
However, the 2022 season ended abruptly after he was benched in the final two games due to concerns about his contract and declining performance.
