The Saints signed QB Derek Carr to a contract and have added some former Raiders targets in WR Bryan Edwards and TE Foster Moreau to their roster.

Duncan explains that Gruden spent much of his time with Carr and the Saints’ offensive coaching staff working on the early stages of the team’s offensive installation.

Carr’s best seasons in the NFL came under Gruden. Duncan notes that while the terminology in New Orleans is different, the protection protocols and many of the passing concepts are generally the same.

Gruden has been out of the spotlight since he resigned as the Raiders’ head coach during the 2021 season. 

Gruden’s emails surfaced as part of the investigation into workplace misconduct involving the Washington Football Team. Gruden had been emailing former Washington president Bruce Allen over several years. 

The NFL has denied that they were responsible for the leaked emails. Gruden later sued the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell. 

We’ll have more regarding Gruden and the NFL as the news is available.
