Derek Carr wanted to leave money for teammates

The Oakland Raiders officially signed Derek Carr to a five-year, $125 million contract extension through the 2022 season, and the star quarterback said he “never chased the money”.Wilson is likely to fall to eighth, as Detroit’s Matthew Stafford is working on a contract that likely would top Carr’s deal.Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has enough talent around him to compete with QB Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, according to MMQB’s Albert Breer. Philadelphia elected to move on after Bradford went 7-8 as a starter and the Vikings might do the same if they believe that Teddy Bridgewater can return. “You can give me a dollar, you can give me $25 million, it doesn’t matter to me. If he bounces back, they have another season with an affordable passer under center”. With another record extension looming, for reigning defensive MVP Khalil Mack, the Raiders will bring to Vegas one of the league’s highest-rolling QBs and pass rushers.Has Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles been put on notice?He’s not wrong that the Raiders have some very good young talent, but Carr has yet to play a single playoff game.The biggest difference between how each player’s negotiating power is perception.But Carr is not anxious about that and the Raiders are pleased to have the face of their franchise under contract through 2022 as they prepare to move to Las Vegas in 2020.If the Vikings fail to reach the playoffs again and Bridgewater isn’t back to 100%, it’s possible that Minnesota could approach Bradford’s situation in a similar fashion to the way Buffalo and Washington have handled their quarterbacks: By not locking themselves into long term deals. Cousins and the Redskins are trying to get a long-term deal done by the July 17 franchise deadline. The Raiders are on the right track, but does that really make them stack up against a Patriots team that won the Super Bowl and only got better in the offseason?
