Raiders and Derek Carr deal is done, per Carr himself

Derek Carr said we’d hear it from him first.

And now we have.

The Raiders quarterback played reporter Thursday morning, confirming via Twitter that his contract is finished.

He promised us as much yesterday, upon the reports from the insiders which declared the deal was “close.”

The deal has been pegged at $25 million per year, which would make him the highest-paid player in the league.

And when the details are known, it will surely be of interest to players such as Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins, as well as the underpaid such as Aaron Rodgers.

    There you go, no more unnecessary drama.

    The Raiders have a gem in Carr.

    The deal is done!

    And so are the raiders.

    25 million for a QB who averages 238yds a game. Bargain.

    I read in another forum that the first few years are 23 million and it doesn’t kick to 25 million until they move to Vegas and there’s no state income tax. Reggie doing Reggie things.

    Pay the man! But, we will still regress to 9-7 this year.

    This Bronco fan is glad to see the Raiders as a threat again. Carr is certainly a big part of that.

    But a contract like this might force them to pull in their reigns on other players. At least I hope so.

    Let the rivalry resume.

    Rodgers deserves more money, but Stafford and Cousins do not.

    What were the odds of that happening?

    Congrats DC, now lets get this ring!

    Well deserved, Carr is true gentleman, leader and great WB!!

    Great representative of our great organization. Glad to have him locked up. As Radiers fans we can truly appreciate having a franchise QB.

    Let the hate flow but what he has done in his first 3 years is pretty damn good. 4-12, 7-9, 12-3 with a horrible defense. Dude is money in the clutch and his confidence never waivers. Five 4th Qtr or OT come back wins in 2016, most in NFL history.

    WOW! Highest paid player for a dude that doesn’t have a career winning record, no playoff wins and no division titles????? Wow, just Wow!

    Now as a Raiders fan i love Carr but i dont know, just find it a bit hypocritical. Hes a religious man yet seems to be quite greedy ! 25 mill a year ? Really ? Obscene amount of money, does he really need all that ?

    The crazy money is putting me off the NFL slightly, just obscene amounts of money.

    Trying to re-sign Mack next year will be tough.

    Only plus is this deal gets done before Stafford/Cousins as now their agents will push for even more money.

    15% of the salary cap for one guy…but if it has to be one guy…THIS is the guy. (I think)

  16. chefjon81 says: Jun 22, 2017 10:50 AM

    Whatever Carr is getting paid, Khalil Mack deserves at least as much. Obviously not the same position but Mack is the best in the league at what he does, and more of a sure thing than Carr

    Can’t pay big money to a QB and have enough left to build a championship team. That’s why you should pay after winning a championship not before.

  18. badmoonrison says: Jun 22, 2017 11:54 AM

    Man, I love my Raiders!

  19. swhy19 says: Jun 22, 2017 11:58 AM

    If Carr gets $25mil per , Rodgers is worth $40mil per.

  20. madderstork says: Jun 22, 2017 11:59 AM

    Carr is the first great QB drafted by my Raiders since Snake Stabler in ’68 and people are on here saying he’s not worth it. How much would you pay for a glass of water after wandering through the Sahara?

    Great day to be a Raider fan!

  21. raiderlife1 says: Jun 22, 2017 12:01 PM

    @ boknowsvt

    But what I don’t get is why didn’t Carr take less in the Vegas years. We could have added more pieces to the team. Had he taken 20 Mill in those years he would have still brought home close to the same amount, but had a better team around him.

    As a Pats fan I love seeing other teams give so much of their cap space to a single player, in the next 2 years the Raiders have some big names coming up for huge paydays, will be interesting to see how they work them all out.

    Hopefully, the Raiders can keep it together, would love to see them and the Pats battling for the AFC for the next 3-5 years.

    Way over paid

  24. pantherpro says: Jun 22, 2017 2:49 PM

    Overrated! Did the bottom of the check say Vegas Raiders!!

    So many teams with top 15 QB’s should have gave up and tried again with their young players????

  26. raiderapologist says: Jun 22, 2017 7:44 PM

    That’s crazy money, but he’s an ascending player, and QBs get paid. It’s a good problem to have.
