The Raiders and quarterback Derek Carr found their sweet spot.

Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said last month that he hoped the two sides would find that “sweet spot” in negotiations for a contract extension this offseason. On Wednesday, they reached it and Carr has agreed to a three-year extension with the team.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the new pact is worth $121.5 million. Carr is in the final year of his current deal, so he’s now under contract in Las Vegas through the 2025 season.

The deal wide receiver Davante Adams signed after coming to the Raiders in a trade runs through 2026, so the Raiders now have two offensive linchpins locked up for years to come thanks to the work done by McDaniels and General Manager Dave Ziegler since they joined the organization earlier this year.

  1. JMD and Ziegler are killing it in their first off-season. They’ve made more positive personnel moves in their 3 months on the job vs what Gruden and Mayock did in 3 years. It’s nice to finally have a professional front-office and staff who know how to run things.

  2. Three more years of being the fourth best Qb in the AFC West and getting shook by Bosa and Khalil Mack Justin Herbert and Brandon Staley are loving this

  3. The Raiders now have Two dollars and 35 cents left in cap room and may need to play 8 man football

  4. Very Deserving. Glad we have him for atleast 2 more years, arguably the best Raider QB of all time. I bet the contract is for around 69mill guaranteed which is pretty fair and favorable for the team. Great Job to the organization for getting distractions out the way and focusing on football.

  5. It won’t be long when we will start seeing average QB’s making 50 million per year. We have become desensitized with the amount of money most athletes now receive but many appear to be okay with all this. Ticket prices, food and drinks at stadiums are just insane. Sports at one time were about the average person taking there family to be entertained for a few hours, now most can only watch it on tv.

  6. I love this deal for my Radiers but the market is waaaaaaayyyyyyy to high for not elite players.

  7. When the Raiders absolutely needed a touchdown in their one playoff game, Derek Carr threw INT and lost the game. This is what you will always get with Carr. Good, but not good enough.

  8. Damn, Pat Mahomes and Josh Allen’s contracts looking better and better as time goes by.

  9. Still no chance for the Raiders anytime soon. Their QB roster is filled backup QBs. They have no fan base in Vegas and all three teams in their division are MILES better than them.

  10. Here go again, terrible management and worse staff all the way down the personnel on the team. Raiders will Raider…….4th place finish in the division confirmed!

  11. Why commit that type of $$ to a slightly better than average QB who hasn’t played in McDaniel’s system yet? Foolish.

    The Raiders made the playoffs last year and got considerably better this off-season.

  13. Funny…9 months ago fans were wanting him traded. And he didnt have a prove it year by any means.

  14. One person said Carr was the best QB in Raider history…..

    Well if Darryl Lamonica (80 years old) and Jim Plunkett (74 years old) came back to play, Carr would be the third best QB on the team. If Kenny Stabler got out of the grave he would win the starting position too.

    40 million a year? Seriously?

  15. This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone. It’s a large reason why Davante Adams wanted to go to LV.

  16. Higher % completions than Brady, more yards than Burrow, despite missing Waller for extended period, and Ruggs was leading league in yards per catch. His defenses throughout his career avg 26 points per game letting up. He isn’t issue, but now time to prove DC!

    Bosa vs the Raiders last season… 1-2 tackles and 1 sack per meet. Great job against a bad Raiders offensive line. Right? Now you want to add Mack’s name, like the Raiders didn’t add anyone to make the Chargers worry. It must suck when you get beat by a team that didn’t have their head coach that started the season, not their number one receiver.

    This isnt just a stats argument Obviously in this era Derek is gonna blow all the old numbers out the water. What does transcend the different eras is the actual talent. Those QBs we all hold dear were carried by some of the scariest Defenses in NFL history. Derek has lead some truly awful teams and always put up top 10 numbers every season. The 2 years hes had an atleast middling defense hes gotten them to the playoffs.

  19. I know the devil is in the details of these contracts, but….um…$40M per year for Derek Carr seems like an awful lot…..really, just an awfully large amount. And I like Carr. But, jeez.

  20. Not a bad quarterback and McDaniels will give him an offense that works for him. You could do a lot worse.

  21. Maybe by 2025 he will have a career winning record north of .500 and his first playoff win.

  22. Remember when people said that Mahomes contract was going to cripple the Chiefs? Now that contract is looking more and more team friendly. Especially considering second tier qbs are getting what he’s getting.

  23. Sports is just entertainment, like TV, movies, and music.

    If you are an entertainer, and you’re half good at it….you get paid.

  24. He’s always shown he is a true winner on the field and off and the only thing stopping on from a Super Bowl was a carousel of coaches and an absolutely lackluster defense for ages until last year

  25. This GREAT news for the franchise and to move forward –it will save cap money in the long run and our new management is locked into a winning culture with Carr and DA. The Raiders are now set to dethrone the chiefs and win the AFC WEST this year..Raider Nation is now set for the next faze of their run into the playoffs and beyond..Shoutout to Mr. Davis for the Commitment to Excellence!

  26. I like Carr. I don’t understand the lack of excitement around him. I also haven’t understood the reluctance to support him completely.

  27. Go Raiders. A near #1 combo Carr to Adams. Looking forward to this potential dynamic duo.
    Maybe Carr will get the respect he deserves. Boy, the AFC has some powerhouse QB-WR combos.

  28. All the haters are just mad because they wanted Derek Carr and now they can’t get him!

  29. as a chiefs fan, my only issue is that they didn’t give him more money.
    .

  30. If the average person on here, who takes the time to post, makes $100,000 a year, it will take 400 yrs for that person to earn what Carr will make in 1 yr…for throwing a football.

  31. As I’ve said before there are only 2 QBs in the history of the NFL to average over 20 completions per game (320+ completions annually), and over 200 yards per game (3,200+ yards annually) their first 5, 6, 7, 8th year in the league. Peyton Manning and Derek Carr.
