Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is expected to be trade this offseason, but nothing is set in stone yet.
The team’s general manager Dave Ziegler was asked on Thursday if teams have shown interest in Carr yet, and it sounds like there might be some team managers asking about the quarterback this week at the Senior Bowl.
“There's going to be people interested in Derek Carr, there’s no doubt about that,” Ziegler said, via SiriusXM NFL Radio. “He’s been a good football player in this league for quite some time. And, like I said, he’s a phenomenal human being. We’ll kind of just see where it goes.”
Carr’s future is still unknown at this time, but it sounds like the quarterback will not remain in Las Vegas next season. This all comes after The Athletic’s Vic Tafur reported that if the Raiders are unable to trade Carr by Feb. 15, the franchise will release him, ending his nine-year stint with the club.
The 31-year-old quarterback has seemingly addressed the probable trade a few times, starting with what appeared to be an emotional goodbye to the Raiders franchise. He even joked about his trade during Thursday night’s Pro Bowl Games, saying he’s “probably going somewhere else.”
