When the Raiders benched Derek Carr for the final two games of the 2022 season, it was clear that his time in Las Vegas was coming to an end.
Today, Derek Carr took to social media to thank the Raiders and Raiders fans. Here is part of what he said:
“I once said that if I’m not a Raider I would rather be at home and I meant that, but I never envisioned it ending this way,” Carr wrote. “That fire burning inside of me to win a championship still rages. A fire no man can extinguish; only God. So I look forward to a new city and a new team who, no matter the circumstance, will get everything I have. Winning a championship is what I’ve always wanted and what I will continue to work towards.”
Trading Carr soon is important as he has a $40.4 million dollar roster bonus that kicks in on February 15. A trade decision would need to happen before then.
