In May, the Saints invited former Raiders head coach Jon Gruden to OTAs to pick his brain since he has ample experience coaching Derek Carr. Carr explained why this makes sense...
“I mean, it makes sense. I played my best football for him,” Carr said, via ProFootballTalk. “So if anybody — trust me, I spent a lot of time with him. And so if anybody knows me, knows things about me that I don’t know, he would know it. “[The Saints coaches] can ask questions that I can’t answer. How’s Derek react after this? I think I’m going to answer it right, but ‘Gru’ will tell the truth.”
"I can’t express enough how much I love coach Gruden. He’s family to me. When all that stuff happened, it was hard for me because you’re mad, you’re frustrated. But you don’t stop loving him, you know? I love that man and what he’s meant to me in my career — I played my best football with him. And I admire him. I’ve seen him around his kids, I’ve seen him around Cindy, his wife. I know who he is and I love him deeply like family. So, I can’t express to you how much he means to me and how hard of a time that was for me, when all that stuff was happening.”
