Outlook

Carr was a second round selection for the Oakland Raiders and is their next "quarterback of the future" and apparently now their quarterback of the present. A strong preseason and Matt Schaub's struggles have led him to be named the week 1 starter. Carr had a monster season at Fresno State in 2013, becoming only the 4th FBS quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. Carr is athletic quarterback with a good arm, but some question how much of his production was a result of the spread offense run at Fresno State. His quick release and arm talent will assure he gets a long look. The Raiders offensive line could make things difficult on the rookie.

Raiders | Derek Carr tired of rumors (Thu Jan 23, 01:49 PM) - Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is tiring of the quarterback rumors surrounding the team -- the latest resulting from a photo taken of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, a pending free agent, and Raiders owner Mark Davis talking at Jan. 18 UFC fight in Las Vegas. 'C'mon man, when's it going to end?' Carr asked.

Our View: Everyone is wondering where Brady is going to play in 2020. It would actually make a lot of sense if the Raiders made a run at Brady when he hits the open market. Carr is going to have to get used to the rumor mill, and it already seems like his time as the Raiders starter could be done in the near future. Only time will tell.

Raiders | Derek Carr's release would save big money (Mon Jan 13, 09:13 PM) - Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is scheduled to count $21.5 million against the 2020 salary cap, and releasing him would save the Raiders $16.5 million after a $5 million charge for dead money. Previous reports have placed the odds of Carr's return at 70 percent.

Our View: Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has never seemed enamored with Carr. We could see the team release him in order to make a run at a veteran like Tom Brady or Cam Newton (if released for Brady and if traded with Newton). Gruden loves his veteran quarterbacks but the team might want to go after a rookie instead. Who knows what will happen but things look dire for Carr's time with the Raiders.
