The Las Vegas Raiders have a top-level quarterback in Derek Carr, so what can Raider Nation expect from him in 2022?
Last season, the Las Vegas Raiders defied all odds, jumped through hoops, stumbled through obstacles, and dealt with more off-the-field incidents than 32 teams combined should be forced to endure. Through it all, the Raiders most tenured player and signal-caller, Derek Carr led his team to the playoffs when the season came down to the literal wire.
As Carr progressed as a leader, he also grew as a player, and while he had the greatest passing seasons of his career, his touchdown numbers took a slight decline. This season, Carr looks to have his best season not only statistically but also professionally as the front office has invested in the future of the team and has positioned them for success.
It has been a great offseason for Las Vegas, and a needed one, as the AFC West as a whole got better this offseason as well. Carr not only has to prove he can lead this team back to the playoffs, but he has to do it in a division that has multiple future Hall of Famers at his position group.
Here, we dive into what we could expect from Carr in 2022.
