Saints Restructure Derek Carr's Contract

Friday, February 23, 2:00 PM

The New Orleans Saints restructured quarterback Derek Carr's contract on Friday for salary cap purposes, a move that was expected to give the team around $23 million in cap relief for the 2024 season, according to sources. Carr is due $30 million in base salary this year, so converting a portion of that into a signing bonus provides immediate savings. The 32-year-old veteran signal-caller is under contract with the Saints through 2026. In his first year in the Big Easy, he threw for 3,878 yards, 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions while amazingly not missing a single game despite suffering multiple concussions, cracked ribs and a shoulder sprain. Carr is as tough as they come and can give fantasy managers low-end QB1 lines on occasion, but he's best drafted as a fantasy backup.

Jordan Love Comes Up Short In Loss To 49ers

Sunday, January 21, 9:23 AM

Green Bay Packers quarterback Jordan Love completed 21 of 34 passes for 194 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, adding five carries for three yards during the team's 21-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The 25-year-old kept the pressure on the No. 1 seeded 49ers until the game's final minute, where he tossed a game-ending interception. While Love was not incredible in the box score Saturday night, it does not take away from his fantastic season as a first-year starter. No one gave the Packers a shot to do much of anything this year, and they took one of the top three teams in the league to the limit in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. After finishing as a top-10 fantasy quarterback and a strong end to the regular season, Love will be one of the most interesting quarterbacks to watch in terms of draft value heading into the 2024 regular season.
