Free agent quarterback Derek Carr lined up a visit with another club, this time with an AFC side.

The four-time Pro Bowler has previously visited the New Orleans Saints. On Friday, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported that Carr is now set to visit another team in need of the New York Jets quarterback.

Carr was released from his contract by the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this week, less than a year after signing a three-year extension worth $121.5 million. The future 32-year-old is now a free agent and can sign with a new team right away.

The Jets should find a new starting quarterback after an extremely disappointing season of Zach Wilsonthe #2 pick of 2021 NFL Draft. Wilson and backups Joe Flacco and Mike White have struggled throughout 2022, and problems in the passing game have prevented the Jets from ending a 12-year playoff drought.

In 15 games with the Raiders last season, Carr threw for 3,522 yards and 24 touchdowns to 14 interceptions. Prior to 2022, Carr had thrown for over 4,000 passing yards in four consecutive seasons.

There is no shortage of QB needy teams in the NFL. Now, we wait to see who Carr chooses to start her next chapter with.
