NFL Analyst Shares Brutal Outlook For Saints At Quarterback

Derek Carr, New Orleans Saints

Entering the offseason, the New Orleans Saints faced various areas needing attention, yet their quarterback situation appeared stable.

With Derek Carr set to embark on his second year with the team, having inked a four-year contract worth $150 million the previous offseason, the Saints had solidified their quarterback position for the foreseeable future.

Although Carr’s inaugural season with the Saints was somewhat lackluster due to injury struggles, he admirably started all 17 games and posted commendable statistics.

Throughout these games, Carr boasted a completion rate of 68.4%, accumulating 3,878 yards, 25 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Despite his efforts, the Saints concluded the season with a 9-8 record, narrowly missing out on the playoffs.

Looking ahead to the 2024 season, the Saints are devoid of quarterback concerns.

Brad Gagnon, in a recent article for Bleacher Report, evaluated the anxiety levels surrounding each team’s quarterback situation leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft. New Orleans received a “low” rating, reflecting their confidence in Derek Carr.

Nevertheless, Gagnon concluded his analysis with a foreboding note, suggesting potential troubles on the horizon.

While Gagnon didn’t explicitly elaborate on why the Saints’ quarterback situation could deteriorate, speculation is rife. With substantial financial investment tied to Derek Carr in the coming years, the stakes are high for his performance in the upcoming season. Failure to meet expectations and solidify his role as the team’s long-term quarterback could thrust the Saints into a precarious predicament.

The ramifications of such a scenario are profound. Not only would the team be burdened with significant financial obligations, but they would also find themselves without a reliable quarterback—a pivotal position in football. Coupled with the impending departure of key veteran players over the next couple of years, the Saints could soon confront dire circumstances.
