The Las Vegas Raiders are true to their word. They extended Derek Carr, reinforcing their belief that they want to win now with the signal-caller.
When Dave Ziegler and Josh McDaniels took over as the Raiders’ new head coach and general manager duo, questions quickly arose surrounding Carr’s future. It was widely agreed by many in the media that it would be highly unlikely that No. 4 would play on a lame-duck contract.
The new brain trust in Sin City made it clear early on that they believed they could win with Carr right now. Well, they’ve now backed up their words.
Raider Nation awoke this morning to breaking news about Carr: he had agreed to a three-year extension worth up to $121.5 million, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, who confirmed the news with his source. Whether you love or hate Carr, he’ll be the Raiders’ starting quarterback through 2025.
