The Saints are giving their new QB Derek Carr a 4-year deal, source said. With a big QB number coming, they'll make it work with their cap situation.
Carr is a competent (if unexciting) quarterback. He should provide an upgrade over Andy Dalton for the Saints' skill position players, specifically Chris Olave and Michael Thomas, if he returns. He also has developed a nice rapport with Darren Waller over the years, so Juwan Johnson may be able to build off of his breakout season. As for Carr, he has low-end fantasy QB2 value, especially if the Saints continue to give Taysom Hill snaps at quarterback.
