The New Orleans Saints will be starting a new era in 2023, at least at quarterback.
After a down 2022 season that saw them finish 7-10, the Saints knew they needed an upgrade at quarterback.
So, after taking a look at the free agent market, the Saints set their sets on former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.
He signed a four-year deal with the Saints and will be the new man in New Orleans for the foreseeable future.
New Orleans had to pay up to sign Carr, giving him $150 million over four years.
But, if he can help get them back to the playoffs, it will be well worth it.
To give Carr the best chance at success, the Saints need to give him people to throw to.
One player that was questionable to be on the roster was wide receiver, Michael Thomas.
But, Carr spoke to Thomas after signing with the Saints, and both were excited to work together.
According to Adam Schefter, the Saints have restructured Thomas’ contract agreeing to a one-year deal.

The biggest problem with Thomas is that he can not get on the field.
In the past three seasons, he has played a combined 10 games.
His health has been a serious problem, but he is expected to be full-go in 2023.
Thomas along with Chris Olave and Alvin Kamara gives the Saints a dangerous offense.
If healthy, the Saints should be the heavy favorites to win the South in 2023.
