Derek Carr’s brother likes the idea of him joining the Saints

Ever wondered what Derek Carr would look like in a New Orleans Saints jersey? Here’s a mock-up from his older brother. Darren Carr shared an edited photo of the Las Vegas Raiders quarterback wearing black and gold (well, gold and white, given it’s their away jersey) in a post from his personal Twitter account on Wednesday. Coincidentally, Carr is visiting the Saints team facility at the same time, ahead of the Raiders trade deadline next week on Feb. 15.

Though he’s enjoyed having his younger brother nearby while coaching football at Bakersfield Christian High School in Southern California, the elder Carr is already stumping for a move to New Orleans. The Saints are in the driver’s seat to acquire Carr after scheduling his visit and agreeing to meet the Raiders’ asking-price in a trade, though they could also wait until he’s released next week and try to sign him as a free agent. That may not be ideal with other teams entering the mix and starting a bidding war.

A lot of eyes are on New Orleans as they navigate this complex situation. Carr wields a no-trade clause in his contract that he can use to block a move, and that hard deadline with Las Vegas ensures he owns the most leverage in these negotiations. Let’s see if Carr’s family gets their wish.
