Surprising Info Emerges From Derek Carr's Visit With Jets
After meeting with quarterback Derek Carr over the weekend, the New York Jets are apparently smitten with him.
According to ESPN reporter Jeff Darlington, New York had nothing but nice things to say about Carr following its weekend visit with the former Las Vegas Raiders signal-caller. Based on Darlington's analysis, it was love at first sight.
Derek Carr Jets Rumors
The Jets falling head over heels for Carr isn't totally surprising given that the team hasn't had a quality quarterback in years. Compared to the Sam Darnolds and Zach Wilsons of the world, Carr looks like Tom Brady.
While the 31-year-old veteran would certainly be an upgrade for New York, the idea that he's capable of winning a championship might be a leap too far. Carr has yet to win a playoff game in his nine-year career, let alone a Super Bowl.
The four-time Pro Bowler is also coming off one of his worst statistical seasons in awhile despite getting a new No. 1 receiver and an offensive-minded head coach last year in Davante Adams and Josh McDaniels. Carr won't have the same caliber of weapons with the Jets, so it wouldn't be a shock if he takes another step back.
It seems like the Jets will do what they can to acquire Carr this offseason, although he also has interest from the New Orleans Saints. Time will tell where he ends up and if he's able to deliver on the potential that New York sees in him.
