Derek Carr has opted to do what man Oakland Raiders fans are refusing to right now – believe what head coach Jon Gruden is saying. The 27-year-old quarterback was open when talking about trade rumors which are swirling around him, and even after seeing both Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper dealt, he doesn’t seem worried.
As The Athletic’s Vic Tafur revealed, Carr stated that both general manager Reggie McKenzie and Gruden have made it known trading him is “not something they’re thinking about.”
While Carr may not be expecting to get shipped out of town, it seems he’s prepared for anything, thanks to his brother. As Matt Schneidman of the Bay Area News Group revealed, David Carr, former quarterback and current analyst, once told his brother that anyone can be cut. The proof of that? Peyton Manning.
