Derek Carr: I would always welcome playing with Davante Adams again

Once upon a time, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and Packers receiver Davante Adams were college teammates at Fresno State.

The two were such a good pair that both became second-round picks in 2014. Adams has turned into one of the league’s best receivers and Carr is a three-time Pro Bowler.

Adams’ current quarterback is in the middle of a dispute with Green Bay’s front office — though Adams has unequivocally stood by Aaron Rodgers throughout the process. But the wideout is entering the last year of his contract.

Because of that, Carr appears to be holding out hope that Adams will hit the market next spring. And if that happens, Carr would like a reunion.

“I’ve learned in this business you never shut a door on anything,” Carr told Bri Mellon of ABC 30 Fresno. “I think he’s obviously the best receiver — everybody says one of the best, he’s the best receiver in the NFL. The guy is unbelievable. He’s been one of my best friends since we were in college. I love the guy.

“I would always welcome [playing] with him again. I think it would unlock some things in both of us that people haven’t seen yet. And I’m always open to that and I will be recruiting very hard. So when that time comes, it will be a full-court press.”

With Carr as the starting quarterback, Adams caught 102 passes for 1,312 yards and 14 touchdowns as a redshirt freshman and 131 passes for 1,719 yards with 24 TDs as a redshirt sophomore, his final year at Fresno State. Adams led the league with 18 touchdowns last season, but his highest yardage output was in 2018, when he caught 111 passes for 1,386 yards.

Green Bay probably isn’t inclined to let Adams go anywhere. But if Adams does become a free agent, it would be interesting to see he and Carr reunite to find out if they can rekindle the chemistry they shared in college.

  1. Better chance Carr ends up throwing him balls in a Green Bay uniform when Gruden goes all in and trades for Aaron in desperation.

    Trade Carr and 3 first round picks for Aaron Rodgers.
    ______________

    You would trade a top 10 quarterback and 3 first round picks for a QB who will destroy your cap, whine like a bish and not even be on the roster 3 years from now due to either his age or his attitude? I guess we know why you’re not an NFL gm.

  3. In actual news:

    My 2020 Jordan Love Donruss Optic Rookie card(Autographed) went up in value from $1,200 to $4,800.

    Probable to be the best backup in the NFL, and a future elite starter in the league. Value will only rise.👍

  4. The Raiders have no QB after the Mack trade, nor do they have a replacement for Mack in a division with the best QB in the game.

    Clearly the Bears won the Mack trade! Two playoff appearances and a division title since the trade.

    The Raiders moved to Vegas…..lol

  5. If Rodgers moves on you might as well let Adams walk and start the rebuilding process…unless Love can actually play.

  6. The imbecile claiming Derek Carr is a top 10 QB is definitely another cowardly joetoronto handle.

    The Raiders have two back up QBs on their roster (and NEITHER are top 10) and missed their window to get a QB from all the 1st draft picks they received. They have Maxx Crosby though, lmao.

  7. The only top ten QB in the AFC West is Patrick Mahomes.

    Period.

    Derek Carr could maybe play the 3rd string spot on the Chiefs.

  8. Complete 67% of your pass attempts, throwing for 4103 yards, throwing 27 TD’s, and only get picked off 9x makes you a backup or 3rd stringer. LOL! Do I think Carr is a top 10 QB? No. But to say he is a backup or 3rd stringer on the Chiefs is an ID10T thing to say. Derek Carr was not the Raiders problem, the problem with the Raiders was the defense played like dumpster juice.

    That is an outright lie regarding the card. Ebay comps of this card graded Gem Mint 10 are selling for $1200.

    This, like any other posts of yours is full of BS. You act like you’re in the know, but you don’t know anything.

  10. Carr needs to focus on running for those 1 yard and 2 yard first downs to keep drives alive .

  11. Don’t worry Derek, Gutie is just arrogant enough to let him go. No contract extension this year and watch for the first time in forever they’ll draft a WR in the first round and then it’s bye, bye Davante.

    Hey Mark, that whole “we’re not idiots” comment is really aging well isn’t it.

    Derek Carr was ranked 9th best quarterback in the league at the end of last season by ProFootball Focus. But I guess you know more.

  13. love to see the Carr haters out in full force today, you know its too hot outside when all them have time to type these comments.

  14. “Derek Carr was ranked 9th best quarterback in the league at the end of last season by ProFootball Focus. But I guess you know more.”

    Derek Carr is 19-29 since the pivotal Mack change that you bragged about for the past three years.

    Who cares what his stats are, he sucks! That’s like throwing Stafford’s stats out there to claim he’s a top ten QB. Stats don’t reflect any SB wins or playoff wins for that matter.

    Won’t be needed in Vegas. The receiving corps is loaded!

    Yep! In a heartbeat. The goal is to win the super bowl. Never lose sight of that. Carr isn’t even a top 20 QB. The only lists he’s near the top of are the most losses, and the most excuses.
