Let’s dive right into what happened this week in New Orleans Saints news and some of the reactions.
On Derek Carr becoming a free agent but still interested in the Saints:
I know I said adios to social media but @derekcarrqb I know it may be too soon but it’s also Valentine’s Day are you are you trynna swap out black and silver and fall in luv with BLACK & GOLD?— cameron jordan (@camjordan94) February 14, 2023
Derek Carr birthday is 3/28 so honestly him becoming Saints QB might be destiny.— Jono Barnes (@JonoBarnes) February 15, 2023
Saints need to get Derek Carr on the roster! We’ll call him Street Carr @camjordan94 @Saints— Tater Q104 (@Taterq104) February 15, 2023
The Raiders, who know Derek Carr best, didn't want to pay him 3 more years/120M. Saints were only team who tried to trade for him. If they really wanted him, they would've figured it out instead of asking him for a pay cut.— Jason Smith (@howaboutafresca) February 15, 2023
You go more than 2 years/60M on Carr? You're insane.
On the Saints also interested in Baker Mayfield:

I've been thinking a lot about Derek Carr playing for the Saints and his brother's twitter had me really thinking I'd rather try out Baker Mayfield if they're moving on from Jameis for sure.— Coconut Mike (@kvltclassic) February 15, 2023
“Baker Mayfield has signed with the New Orleans #Saints”— Childless Gambino (@Mr_Xecutive) February 14, 2023
On losing Declan Doyle to Sean Payton and the Denver Broncos:
Declan Doyle is leaving the Saints to join Sean Payton’s coaching staff in Denver, according to a source. Doyle spent the last four years serving as an offensive assistant and coached the tight ends at the Senior Bowl.— Nick Underhill (@nick_underhill) February 15, 2023
#Saints coaching staff is now reassembled after the departures of Ryan Nielsen, Kris Richard, Zach Strief and Declan Doyle.— Ross Jackson (@RossJacksonNOLA) February 15, 2023
Biggest outstanding question now is QB coach/passing game coordinator Ronald Curry who had interviews with Broncos and Bucs for their open OC roles.
On Marcus Maye restructuring his contract:
The #Saints converted $6.07 million of S Marcus Maye's base salary into a signing bonus. Let the salary cap gymnastics begin!— Bo Morris (@Fantasyguy23) February 15, 2023
tying yourself more closely to an aging injury-prone player with potentially multiple suspensions ahead of him. cool cool cool— John Sigler (@john_siglerr) February 15, 2023
