This is the horse we're riding for good or ill, so strap yourselves in for the ride guys!

There was never any chance Carr wouldn't be our QB for the foreseeable future. The deal they signed with him was always structured to have simple restructures of salary and roster bonuses. Carr doesn't have to "take" anything. Our contracts always carry the clause where the team can convert those dollars to signing bonus and prorate without any further player input. It's really no difference to them in most cases. In fact, in some cases they can even get their cash sooner. That's what's nice about having a cash rich owner like Ms. Benson.

Raiders and Bucs both have their OC positions penciled in.

But alas there are TJ Hooker reruns that Mickey needs to watch.

Re: 2024 Saints Off-Season General News and Discussion

NOLA.com’s Luke Johnson reports the Saints plan to restructure Derek Carr’s contract before the start of the new league year.

The league’s new year starts March 13. The restructure essentially means Carr will be with the Saints through the 2025 season. He’ll count as a $35.7 million salary cap hit next season if the Saints don’t scramble to redo the deal and get under the cap. It’s a familiar situation for the perpetually cap-strapped Saints. In his first year as New Orleans’ starter, Carr threw for 3,878 yards and 25 touchdowns along with eight interceptions. He was 17th in adjusted drop back EPA, just ahead of Russell Wilson. Johnson said the Saints “believe [Carr] is the right quarterback to lead the team.”

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Carr is tough and a competitor. With the injuries he had this season, most would have missed 2 to 6 games. His attitude greatly changed by the end of the season and he was playing well. I would like to see Milton drafted and sit behind Carr for a couple years. Dude has rare arm talent.

We'll have to keep waiting if our new OC is on the 49er's staff. We're not allowed to sign a coach still active although I have heard that "wink, wink" deals are not unheard of.

Re: Official 2024 Free Agency Discussion

Here's one free agent we need to keep. We've let too many go over the past few years and not because we couldn't afford them.

Big game experience, legit tackler & gets to the QB.

Won't break the bank either.

I'd also move on from Zach Baun.
