The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / QB Derek Carr to visit Jets on Saturday after leaving Raiders

QB Derek Carr to visit Jets on Saturday after leaving Raiders

Publish Date: 02/18/2023
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is scheduled to meet with the New York Jets this Saturday to discuss his prospects for joining the team. This will be his second meeting since being released by the Raiders.

Carr had played with the Raiders for over nine seasons before his release on February 15. Although Carr’s agent Tim Younger said the split was amicable, Carr would have earned a $40.4 million salary if he had remained with the Raiders for another week.

The #Jets are bringing in free agent QB Derek Carr for a visit this weekend, sources say. It’ll be the second meeting with a team for Carr, who visited the #Saints prior to his release by the #Raiders. Carr is in the process of evaluating all options now that he’s a free agent.

Following his release, the free-agent quarterback first met with the New Orleans Saints for a potential opportunity. However, Carr was unable to come to an agreement with the team despite an initially warm reception.

The Jets announced plans to add a veteran quarterback after their sophomore quarterback, Zach Wilson, failed to meet their expectations. Quarterback veterans Joe Flacco and Mike White later replaced Wilson, but the Jets may choose other veteran recruits for the season.

Todd Downing, the Raiders’ 2015-2016 quarterback coach, also joined the Jets recently. The addition may help Carr feel more comfortable in the Jets’ environment.

Carr’s career stats and concerns

Carr contributed greatly to the Raiders before his release, leaving with 35,222 passing yards, 217 touchdowns, 99 interceptions, and a 91.8 passer rating. He has proven to be a capable player and a worthy choice for any team.

His track record heavily outperforms that of Wilson, the Jets’ previous pick-up in 2021. Wilson only took home 4,022 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, 18 interceptions, and a 70.9 passer rating during his stint with the Jets.

However, some sports analysts speculate that Carr may struggle in cold weather, given his 0-7 record in all of his winter games. Considering the Jets’ colder environment, he may need to factor in the climate for his future performance.
