The Las Vegas Raiders need the very best of Derek Carr in 2021, and here are three bold predictions for his 2021 NFL season.
Heading into his eighth season as the starting quarterback for the Raiders franchise, Derek Carr still has a lot he would like to prove. First, he has yet to play in a playoff game, and with half of the fan base still split on whether or not he should be the long-term solution, the 2021 season is a big one for him.
Remember, after this season, there is no dead cap money if the Raiders move on from Carr, so they could make a move at the position group if they wanted to. However, he has shown since Jon Gruden came back that he has the talent to make plays when it matters, and hopefully the defense can be improved enough for the Raiders to make the playoffs this season.
As we look forward to training camp, all eyes are going to be on Carr, especially with a brand new offensive line, as well as some new weapons at his disposal. He has everything on that side of the ball for another monster season, and it will be interesting to see what kind of gameplan Gruden and company have for him moving forward.
With that said, here are three bold predictions for Derek Carr in 2021.
