The New Orleans Saints essentially courted Derek Carr.

They made their intentions clear from the start. They pursued him relentlessly despite competition. And they shared the desire to put a ring on his finger.

A Super Bowl ring, of course.



All of that worked, and Carr’s signing with the Saints was announced Monday.

Carr’s brother, David, shared at least 15 minutes worth of background Wednesday on his son’s podcast, “Harvester Sports.”

“The team knew exactly what they wanted to do, like from the jump: We’re going to target Derek, we’re going to go after him and we’re going to get him,” said David, a former NFL quarterback himself. “And they did, right? That means a lot as a veteran guy, to be wanted.

That was an aggressive courtship from the beginning. Right down to asking for permission to propose. We had a large diamond ring and still had to court him intensely before he accepted the marriage proposal.
