Derek Carr: 'I'm a Raider and I love it'

Derek Carr has lost confidence of teammates, appearing to 'cry after being sacked' didn't help [report]

Raiders Speculation now turns to Carr, whose contract has four years remaining at an average of $19.6 million per season. "I think it will help him the more he's in the system, the more he's here and is able to stay around and stay with one system". They let go of some key players who were part of the Raiders' playoff run in 2016 prior to free agency and filled a lot of their roster holes with older players or veterans who had been productive in the past but have been ineffective in recent years.

"You have to wonder if we haven't been playing for draft picks all along", one player said.

Another player described the Mack deal as a "stiff jab" but the Cooper trade as a "knockout punch" because players were blindsided by it coming out of the bye. So any assertion Gruden makes about trades has to be taken with a grain of salt, but he made one to reporters on Wednesday anyway.

Two weeks ago, Derek Carr could be seen shedding tears in the final minutes of the loss in London against the Seahawks.

The Raiders traded Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday, eight days after Gruden had said Cooper wasn't being shopped and a few months after voicing plans to build the offense around the wideout. It won't get the Raiders back to.500, but as long as the players continue to band together and trudge through the mud, I'm confident they'll come out of it on the other side.

The thing is, just because Gruden said a Carr trade isn't going to happen doesn't mean it's not going to happen and Cooper is proof of that.

"Nobody was happy when we traded Khalil". " Smith said. "You never ever want to trade elite, homegrown talent". Smith added that this could be a learning opportunity for the players. The Athletic's John Middlekauff was reporting that Gruden was listening to offers on Mack long before anyone was interested in listening and he seems to be saying the same is happening with Carr. They witnessed him explain on the sidelines.
