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.
