Derek Carr held a press conference on Friday to officially announce that he has signed a five-year extension with the Oakland Raiders, and he managed to work in a shot at the Seattle Seahawks while chatting with the media.
"T$3 here's no pressure, there's no, 'We'll be on the one-yard line and I won't give it to Marshawn, I'll throw it.' None of that stuff", Carr said. What they have to say really, really matters to me. If we win every game, that's all I care about. "In a one-off situation, I think that they do". That's weird.' (laughter) But then as I began to see it and how we could place it in certain areas and begin to see what kind of impact that could really make, that's when it hit me. It just is what it is.
While negotiating the deal, Carr said that they found a way to give the Raiders a chance to sign other teammates who are important to the team. He was part of a stellar draft class with Mack and Jackson that has been key to Oakland's turnaround. Washington has franchise tagged Cousins and the Bills have essentially given Taylor one-year deals.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, who is now the NFL's highest paid player, was asked what he's going to buy. The deal features $25 million in the first year - there's a $12.5 million signing bonus - with $67.5 million over the first three years, according to ESPN's Dan Graziano. The Raiders and Carr agreed to a $125 million extension through 2022 averaging about $25 million a year.
Derek Carr has on multiple occasions said he wants to "Be a Raider for Life". "It's about being the best version of myself every day. I'll prolly get some Chick-fil-A".
