“He doesn’t get guaranteed money. He’ll be a free agent and someone else will give him a lot of guaranteed money, so there’s a bit of a trade-off there.” Derek Carr “I expected to be one of the most coveted free agents,” Rapoport said. is very fond of him and I would like to keep in mind that there is a mutual interest there.”
Not an overwhelming class of free-agent quarterbacks expected to keep moving. Baker Mayfield, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jacoby Brissett, and now he Carr can all get a head start on them all, almost a month ahead.
However, Carr’s landing point outside of New Orleans could be Carolina or Washington. Both teams are looking for long-term answers at quarterback, but they won’t be picking the top picks in the 2023 NFL Draft.
