After weeks of watching the league’s top receivers having money thrown at them by NFL organizations, it seems one of the guys throwing them the ball has finally gotten himself in on the action.

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Derek Carr has secured a massive contract extension for himself to stay with the las Vegas Raiders through the 2025 season.

This contract is a big gamble for the Raiders, but it appears the contract is at least structured in a way that helps out the Raiders. The last time they gave Carr a big contract, they had to make sacrifices elsewhere, but Carr says he made sure this contract was structured in a way that would help the Raiders make moves elsewhere on the roster.

Right now, that means holding onto the best group of pass catchers Carr has ever gotten to throw to. The Raiders just signed Davante Adams to a huge contract extension and have Darren Waller under contract for 2 more seasons, but will need to work out an extension with Hunter Renfrow soon and will have to make decisions at running back at the end of the season.

It is clear that Derek Carr wants to bring home some hardware to Vegas and this contract will help the team do it.
