Derek Carr is taking shots.
Before leaving the Silver and Black, Derek Carr experienced the full Raiders’ journey and is now grateful for his current position as the Saints’ quarterback.
He acknowledges the importance of stability in an organization and hopes the Raiders can find it for future players.
“I’m happy to be somewhere where we’re in a stable organization that’s been proven for years,” Carr told the Fresno Bee’s Anthony Galaviz on Saturday, “and I hope that the Raiders find something good there too, where they can keep that stability for the next guys because I know how important it is and I care about my old teammates. But for the time being, I’m just excited to be a part of the Saints organization because they’ve won at a high level for a long time.”
However, he is excited to be a part of a proven and stable Saints team that has a record of high-level victories.
Despite the loss of Drew Brees and Sean Payton, Carr is ready to lead the Saints as they move forward.
The team had a competitive and enjoyable offseason, and Carr sees a lot of potential, with capable playmakers and a strong defense.
“We had a great offseason as a team, really came together, and the work on the football field is very competitive,” he said. “It’s one of the more competitive, as many camps I’ve ever been a part of. We have so many veterans that are really trying to prove it every day and trying to beat each other every day, talking trash. It was so competitive and so fun to be a part of.”
Defensive end Cameron Jordan is eager to help Carr lead the team to the Super Bowl, and Carr appreciates his teammate’s dedication.
While the Saints have work to do to be contenders, Carr is optimistic and motivated to take on the challenge.
To be fair anything is more stable than the Las Vegas Raiders have been, but still no need to take shots at your former employer.
