Las Vegas Raiders star quarterback Derek Carr has been in a worrying situation since last year’s Christmas Eve game, when he was dropped from the starting lineup and never returned.
The fallout began last month when the Raiders began wasting their chances of winning and not qualifying for a wildcard spot. Bigger star QB’s performance also went downhill later that season. And finally, when he was replaced by Jared Stidham, Derek lost all hope of continuing the franchise.
The drama continued when both parties were bound to a no-trade clause in last year’s renewal deal. However, the scene has changed quite a bit in a year.
Where could Derek Carr go after leaving the Los Angeles Raiders?
There have been several rumors surrounding the 31-year-old quarterback’s potential landing spot; However, the rumor took on a new whiff when the New Orleans Saints joined the race to win it.
The rumor was fueled when a Carr brother, Darren, posted a manipulated picture of his younger brother in the Saints kit to Twitter. Though he wrote a cryptic message in the caption, “Life is a Movie,” the post was later deleted.

But eventually the contract banned him from joining a team until it expired, and Carr must take the first step to join and break free of the bond. Otherwise, his career will suffer, and the raiders will suffer as well.
The Saints are also in a troubling situation with the franchise quarterback right now. The Saints ended their third season in the NFC South with a 7-10 record. Both Derek and the Saints appear to have benefited from this deal.
However, even if the attacker circumvents the no-trade clause problem, the trading fee problem remains. For now, like the four-time Pro Bowler, the Raiders should be looking for a modest deal to get out of a tight spot.
What do you think of Derek Carr joining the Saints? Is his brother’s inside source really reliable? Leave your thoughts with us in the comments.
