Carr reportedly on verge of massive extension with Raiders

Derek Carr wasn’t even considered good enough three years ago to be a first-round pick in a quarterback-starved league.

Now, he’s on the verge of signing one of the largest contracts – perhaps the largest contract – in NFL history.

The Oakland Raiders and Carr are wrapping up a long-term extension that was inevitable, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Carr wanted to be with the Raiders and after years and years of losing, the Raiders weren’t going to let him hit free agency next offseason. The deal is worth about $25 million per year. Carr’s deal might set the NFL record for most money per year, a record held by Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck at about $24.6 million per season.

Carr made sure to tell everyone nothing was official.

The Raiders got a chance to experience life without Carr late last season. When Carr broke his leg, a fantastic Raiders team fell apart. Oakland struggled mightily in its final two games without Carr. Matt McGloin was terrible in the regular-season finale and rookie Connor Cook had predictable problems in his first career start as the Raiders lost a wild-card playoff game to the Houston Texans.

The Raiders didn’t want to go down that road permanently, so they’ll pay a huge price for Carr’s extension.

Carr has been impressive since he was an early second-round pick of the Raiders in 2014. Thanks to his brother David teaching him how to be an NFL quarterback, he was ready to instantly become the face of the franchise. Last season he got in the MVP conversation, throwing for 3,937 yards, 28 touchdowns and six interceptions.

The Raiders won’t have as much salary cap space anymore, after Carr’s deal is official. That’s better than not having a franchise quarterback.

Hopefully he lives up to it...he hasn't even played in a playoff game if not for the broken fibula last year...this news should shut Deadstinker up for awhile even though he is a worthless fake fan motherfucker!

That sack he took against the Colts and injury can't happen again...that play ruined my Christmas and New Year and ended the Raiders season basically.

It would be nice if this is at least a 6-yr deal. This is our franchise guy, there's no reason to look for a 3 or 4-yr deal. Lock him in.

He has already proven he's a top-5 QB. Now w Beast Mode and Cook, he's going to take it to the next level. I think this is the year he surpasses Bree's in people's minds as the #3 QB in the league.

Cut Carr, save the money and start EJ Manuel!!!! .........Lol I'm happy he's getting his money!! He's earned it! Because of him we are no longer the joke of the NFL. 15 years of losing and shit heads like Jamarcus Russell and Stuey Shwiegert but now because of Carr we are a feared team again. I think he has a huge year. Fuck Brady

Who cares where Carr is in the media/fans minds in regards to QB hierarchy...just lead make the plays and win us games in the playoffs and Super bowl hopefully...we should be lucky if Carr puts up fat stats and durability like Brees has done for over a decade...Raiders will win many games over the next decade if he has a career like Brees or any of the greats.
