The Las Vegas Raiders released Derek Carr on Tuesday, which means he’ll go down as the best free-agent quarterback on the market. And better yet, he doesn’t have to wait until the legal tampering period to start talking to teams.
So Carr and his team can get started and talk to any organization they choose. Players on those teams waste no time in starting their recruiting process either.
Two players from a pair of teams in need of quarterbacks, the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints, took to Twitter to start a conversation with the veteran signal caller.

First, it was Saints’ Pro Bowl defensive end Cam Jordan, who didn’t want to be using social media anytime soon. But he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hit Carr.
«I know I said goodbye to social media, but @derekcarrqb I know it may be too soon, but it’s also Valentine’s Day, right? [sic] Are you trying to trade black for silver and fall in love with BLACK AND GOLD?» Jordan wrote with a laughing heart emoji.

He even found a change of Carr’s jersey with Saints threads on it, and captioned it «Hmmmmmm…».
But Jets star cornerback Sauce Gardner, who was just named Defensive Rookie of the Year last week, wanted to keep the Jets on Carr’s mind.
«Yes @derekcarrqb do you remember your last words before I left the ProBowl? No need for an answer just asking,» he wrote.
Now that’s interesting: Could Gardner be suggesting that Carr told him about his interest while they were together in Las Vegas for the Pro Bowl?
Gang Green will certainly look to Carr to fill their quarterback void, but the Saints are one step ahead. Carr has already visited after the Raiders gave him permission to speak with other teams.

New Orleans reportedly also had a trade package ready for the Raiders, but Carr told Las Vegas that he would not sign any trades, he had a no-trade clause in his contract, forcing his release.
The Saints are still interested, but are expected to have competition from teams like the Jets, Tennessee Titans and others.
