Saints QB Derek Carr announces new jersey number

Carr will wear No. 4, Blake Gillikin will now wear No. 5

NFL: New Orleans Saints-Derek Carr Press Conference Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

New Orleans Saints QB Derek Carr has announced his new jersey number. Carr will wear No. 4 which was previously worn by Punter Blake Gillikin.

Gillikin will now wear No. 5, making the announcement via his Twitter account in a comical photoshop edit.

With the number change, Carr will continue to wear the jersey number that he has worn since playing for Fresno State. Some interesting facts, Carr was drafted in 2014 by the Oakland Raiders. He was the 4th quarterback drafted that year, signing a 4-year deal with the Raiders. He has also been to the Pro Bowl 4 times and just signed a 4-year deal with the Saints, so No. 4 seems to be a good one for Carr.
