Report: Raiders Are Shopping Quarterback Derek Carr

According to Master Tesfatsion of Bleacher Report, he is reporting that the Raiders are currently shopping quarterback Derek Carr at the Scouting Combine.

It is going to be a little tricky if they do indeed deal Carr. Another report indicates that the Raiders had better have a quarterback in place before shopping the one they have.

Carr has $20 million in compensation due this year. His salary became fully guaranteed the week after the Super Bowl. Trading him would result in a cap charge of $7.5 million for the 2019 season.

ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio had this to say about the situation:

It’s possible that the Raiders have a wink-nod deal in place with a looming free agent, who would replace Carr. Signing a veteran would mesh much more cleanly with Gruden’s style, and it wouldn’t be a shock to see him make a run at someone like Nick Foles or Ryan Fitzpatrick possibly with a young quarterback learning behind them.
