Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was Mic’d up for what could have been the franchise’s last game in Oakland on Monday night.
The fact that Carr was Mic’d up was revealed during a conversation with backup QB A.J. McCarron and receiver Jordy Nelson.
Shortly after Nelson learned Carr had a Mic, the former Packer savagely joked, “I wish I had Aaron [Rodgers] back at quarterback.”
"You're mic'd up?! … Man, I wish I had Aaron back at quarterback."

Carr’s nervous laugh says it all. While he was hoping that Nelson was joking, he definitely sensed there was some truth behind it.
Rodgers probably wished he had Nelson back too. The young receivers in Green Bay didn’t exactly fill his former favorite target’s shoes.
