The Derek Carr race is heating up as the QB prepares to meet with New York Jets and 2 other squads in Indianapolis
The NFL is descending on Indianapolis for the NFL Draft Combine this week, which creates a perfect opportunity for coaches, players, and general managers to mingle.
Free agent quarterback Derek Carr is taking full advantage. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Carr will meet with three teams at the Combine: the New York Jets, the New Orleans Saints, and one new team that Carr has not visited yet.
When QB Derek Carr arrives in Indianapolis today, he’ll have in-person free agent meetings with 3 teams: The #Jets, the #Saints, and the #Panthers. He’s already visited New Orleans and NYJ, now he adds Carolina and maybe more. Coaches, GMs, owners all in the same spot this week.

The Carolina Panthers have joined the list of teams who are in pursuit of Carr.
Unlike New Orleans and New York, Carolina has not hosted Carr on a visit in their own city, but nonetheless, it appears the Panthers are showing some interest in the former Raiders quarterback.
Rapoport says that other teams may join Carr’s list of visits in Indianapolis, but for now, Rapoport’s reported list includes only the Jets, Saints, and Panthers.
In a report on Monday, Rapoport stated that Carr is expected to sign before free agency opens on March 13. This makes sense for Carr, as he will want to take advantage of being the only quarterback available on the market before others become free on that date.
Things are getting interesting on the Carr front. Yesterday, Albert Breer reported that Carr’s price is actually expected to be lower than $35 million per year. This would make him an excellent value for the Jets.
As the Jets prepare for a second meeting with Carr, they continue to wait on Aaron Rodgers to decide what he wants to do in 2023.
It’s been a long, grueling waiting game for Jets fans over the last couple of months, but a resolution seems likely to come within the next two weeks.
