Extension situation uncertain
Coach Josh McDaniels said Monday the Raiders are "trying to build around" Carr but spoke vaguely about a potential contract extension for the starting quarterback, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
McDaniels' comments come less than two weeks after Tafur's report that initial discussions between Carr and Las Vegas regarding an extension had begun. Earlier this month, McDaniels confirmed that Carr will enter the 2022 campaign as the Raiders' starting quarterback, and the team since has added a new No. 1 wide receiver to the offensive arsenal in the form of Davante Adams. Despite significant moves to bolster the roster, though, McDaniel's statement that the signal-caller is "going to have to make decisions about what's best for him," along with what appears to be a disgruntled response from Carr's representatives, would seem to indicate that little progress toward a new contract has been made. Currently, Carr is positioned to play out the final year of his contract in the 2022 season, with his $19.8 million salary representing a positional bargain for the Raiders.
