Derek Carr Contract History

Derek Carr has been a solid contributor in the NFL at the quarterback position since 2014. Originally drafted by the Raiders with 4 Pro Bowl appearances and a playoff appearance in 2016. Carr’s numbers are decent with a career completion percentage of 65% , 242 touchdowns, and 147 interceptions.

During the 2022 season with the Las Vegas Raiders, Carr put up his lowest completion rate (60%) since his rookie season. The offensive struggles led to the decision to part ways with the Raiders right after signing a contract earlier in that year. He signed with the New Orleans Saints March 6 of 2023.

Derek Carr’s first season with the Saints showed solid improvement. The franchise and the quarterback agreed to rework the contract in early 2024, converting the $30 million dollar base salary to a signing bonus. The restructuring of the deal opens up $23 million dollars in cap space for the Saints.
