Quarterback Derek Carr will leave the Las Vegas Raiders at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old confirmed this on Thursday on his social media channels. Carr was drafted in the second round by the Raiders in 2014 and has been a QB ever since. However, in December, after a mixed season, the franchise decided to bench and give Garrett Stidham a chance.
As a result Carr himself withdrew from the team and has now announced his final departure. In April, the quarterback signed a three-year, $121.5 million contract extension with a non-trade clause.
The end of the career is not in sight
The player thus has an important say in their future employer. Several teams may be interested in the services of an experienced Signal Caller.
“The fire is still burning,” Carr wrote, confirming his intentions to continue his career. “Winning the Super Bowl has always been my goal and I will continue to work towards it.”
The Raiders, who moved from Oakland to Las Vegas in 2020, also reportedly had the matter of replacing the quarterback position. Deal with superstar Tom Brady.
