METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints coach Dennis Allen said that a visit with former Los Angeles Raiders coach Jon Gruden doesn't foreshadow any major overhaul of the team's offense.

Gruden attended several practices last week and visited with the Saints offensive coaches and quarterbacks as they went through their first full week of offseason practices. Allen said that the main purpose of the visit was to pick Gruden's brain about new Saints quarterback Derek Carr, who played under Gruden from 2018 until Gruden resigned as head coach of the Raiders in 2021.

"Obviously, Jon's a guy that has a lot of experience with Derek and Derek has had his most success under Jon Gruden," Allen said at the conclusion of the Saints practice session on Tuesday.

"And so, we felt like bringing him in, having a chance to sit down and visit with him as an offensive staff, with the quarterbacks and just getting some new thoughts and ideas of things we might be able to implement. I would say this, I would say, offensively for a long time that I've been here, we've been pretty effective. So, I don't see us putting in a whole new offense or doing something dramatic. But if there's a few ideas that we could take from that, we felt like that would be beneficial."
