Derek Carr could be in danger of losing the locker room, as teammates have lost confidence in his abilities as a leader, according to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic.
Carr has responded via Twitter:
I’m a Raider. It’s not a “popular” thing to be a Raider right now, but I am and I love it. I love the struggle of trying to fight back for our city when not a lot of people believe in us. People can try all they want to tear us apart, but it’s not happening to the real ones.
Carr signed a five-year extension worth $125 million in June 2017 but general manager Reggie McKenzie said after the Cooper deal that no player was "untouchable" in trade talks, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic.
The Raiders are now armed with three first-round picks in next spring's draft. Clearly the Raiders are in rebuild mode getting ready for their move to Las Vegas.
