It is very apparent that Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr wishes to remain a Raider for life. The 30 year old was drafted by the Raiders in the second round of the 2014 NFL draft and has started 110 games for the franchise and has amassed a 47-63 record.
Carr spoke after the team’s mandatory minicamp practice on Tuesday and went all-in with his desire to remain a Raider.
“I’d probably quit football if I had to play for somebody else,” Carr said. “I am a Raider for my entire life. I’m going to root for one team for the rest of my life – it’s the Raiders. So, I just feel that so strong in my heart I don’t need a perfect situation … to make things right. I’d rather go down with the ship, you know what I’m saying, if I have to.”
Carr has never won the AFC West since joining the league and has only one playoff appearance. His record against division rival Kansas City is an abysmal 3-11.
Carr went on to say “I don’t need a perfect situation to make things right.”
