UPDATE: Derek Carr’s contract contains $70 million in guarantees

Derek Carr’s contract

Details leaking on Derek Carr’s contract with the New Orleans Saints contains $70 million in fully guaranteed money – a smaller total than earlier reports.

It’s an impressive sum,for sure – but a fraction of the $230 million haul Deshaun Watson earned from the Browns last season.

First reported by NFL Network analysts Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport, Carr would earn $150 million over the life of the four year deal if he’s still with the Saints in 2026.

That’s just over $37 million a season – the annual wage Carr allegedly sought.

It’ll likely be several days, if not longer, before the full details of the contract are known.  But it appears Carr’s deal will include $60 million at signing and another $10 guaranteed that is added at year three – at the conclusion of that season.

Carr will have another no-trade clause in the deal, Garafolo reported.
