An NFL insider predicts quarterback: Daniel Jones of the Giants, Lamar Jackson of the Ravens, and more “Sources tell me and @RapSheet that the Saints are getting close to signing quarterback David Carr. The four-time Pro Bowl selection is moving to New Orleans after playing for the #Raiders for nine seasons. The main QB domino is going to fall and one NFC South group has its starter.”
*** The NFL listens to what Peter King has to say.
Therefore, it’s worth taking a second look at what he wrote Monday in his weekly Football Morning in America column.
The following predictions were made after the NBC Sports NFL insider spun the quarterback carousel:
This week, the QB dominoes ought to start falling. My GM’s best guesses based on crowdsourcing: Derek Carr is headed to the Saints, Aaron Rodgers is unknown (I’m assuming the Jets), Lamar Jackson and Daniel Jones are franchised, and Jimmy Garoppolo will benefit from some quarterback uncertainty in March.
The New York Giants had hoped to complete a deal with Jones last week, but by Tuesday’s deadline, they appear ready to use the franchise tag on him. Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens are in the same boat.
Carr, a former quarterback for the Las Vegas Raiders, is the best signal-caller on the open market.
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, “The former Pro Bowl quarterback has a slight lean toward the #Jets as his next home as of now, per source.” Although the #Panthers and #Saints remain in the conversation for Derek Carr, Although nothing is definitive, the Jets, who are associated with Aaron Rodgers, have left an impression.
King, on the other hand, states, “The Derek Carr market is lukewarm.” At best.”
Much depends on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who hasn’t decided whether he wants to retire or return for a 19th season in the NFL. In addition, if he wishes to return, would he prefer to remain in Green Bay or move on to better opportunities?
