Derek Carr nearly got the New Orleans Saints back to the playoffs in 2023 in his first season as their starting quarterback after spending nine years with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Gruden was fired in the middle of the 2021 season. Then-special teams coach Rich Bisaccia was named the interim coach and before the 2022 season, Las Vegas brought in Josh McDaniels as the new head coach. Dave Ziegler also replaced Mayock as general manager.

Carr was a four-time Pro Bowler with the Raiders, three of which came when he was being coached under Jack Del Rio. When Gruden took over, Carr started a string of seasons in which he threw for 4,000 or more passing yards. He hasn’t hit that mark since 2021.
