Former Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is signing with the New Orleans Saints, sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini on Monday.

Carr appeared to confirm the news, tweeting Monday: “Who dat.”

The Saints, who finished 7-10 last season, were among three teams, including the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers, to have pursued Carr for several weeks.

It didn’t take long for Carr’s contract details to leak, and the numbers are insane.

According to Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, Carr is going to be paid over $37 million a year with nearly a $100 million in guarantees.

While Carr’s contract numbers are massive, here’s what he’s being paid compared to some other QBs in the league.

Not only did Carr get paid a ton of money by the Saints but he also has a no-trade clause in his contract.

Carr’s contract will also likely help Daniel Jones get over $40 million a year he’s asking for.
