Another key detail regarding quarterback Derek Carr‘s contract with the Saints has been revealed.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Media, Carr has received a no-trade clause as part of the deal to bring him to New Orleans.

Carr also had a no-trade clause in his last contract with the Raiders, which essentially forced Las Vegas’ hand into releasing him last month. While the Saints were given permission to meet with Carr while he was still under contract with the Raiders, the quarterback made it clear that he was not going to accept any trade.

In signing with New Orleans, Carr is reuniting with the head coach who drafted him, Dennis Allen.

The Saints are also expected to move on from Jameis Winston now that they’ve added Carr.

  1. As long as the is not a “NO-CUT” clause! When he finishes 8-9 and 9-8 next 2 years

  2. I am not really a fan of Carr or the Saints, but think this was a good signing. The team wants to rid themselves of Winston, and now they can do that easier. They have a sturdy defense in NOLA and some good pieces to build around on offense. I don’t think they will be better than about 8-9 but Carr is a solid citizen and I think they were seeking consistency and stability, on the field as well as off it. I hope it works out for Carr, since he seems like a good dude.

  3. 9-8? Easy there with those expectations. This is Carr and Allen at the helm. Get used to disappointment.

  4. It is a good signing for the Saints, at as reasonable price as they could expect for a starting-level QB. That said, they are in salary cap hell, so it remains to be seen what sort of team they can put around him once free agency shakes out.
    They Saints too date have manipulated the salary cap brilliantly for years. That said, if they fail to do so this year, expect another down year. Carr is a good QB that will keep his teams competitive, no matter what, but that isn’t the same as winning. He isn’t Montana, Manning, or Brady, in that he can carry the team all on his own.

  5. NOW the favorite to win the NFC South…

    As for Winston, there is always XFL and USFL!

    The division is in shambles right now. They have an easy path to playoffs
    Easy path to being one and done in the playoffs and getting a high-teen draft pick.
