Raiders sign second pick Derek Carr

Quarterback Derek Carr, the Raiders’ second-round draft pick out of Fresno State, signed a contract Wednesday, the club announced.

Terms were not disclosed.

“I feel great,” Carr said in a statement.“I’m excited. I’m excited that this part of it is over and now we can just get to work and focus on winning games and getting better every day.”

Carr is the fifth of the Raiders’ selections to sign, joining linebacker Khalil Mack (first round), cornerback T.J. Currie (seventh round), defensive end Shelby Harris (seventh round) and safety Jonathan Dowling (seventh round).

    Good point…I feel they want to be run first pound the ball short pass team

  • TrevJo

    wow that is just f***ing weird

  • RediaR

    Lets just do something at an elite level. Anything. Well not punting. That didn’t work so well.

  • R8erEduc8er

    Carr can be that guy.

    Detroit Raiders lol…watching Bad Boys on ESPN…Rodman,Salley,Mahorn,Johnson,Isiah,Lamibeer, Dumars….man what a team…

  • R8erEduc8er

    We’re not outpassing Manning and Rivers so we better try it the Seattle way.

  • RediaR

    That is also the title of his autobiography

  • aig-raiders

    yup. Not going to out pass Reid either.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Detroit, Oregon Raiders baby!

  • R8erEduc8er

    Kicked a** and took names.

    His fav movie is The Color Classified as Purple.

    Mack, Sio, Roach, Burris, and the Burnett brothers have a very reasonable opportunity to be the best linebacker corp in the NFL.

    I didnt follow these 2 teams last year. I wouldnt count these teams as trend setters. I do know Ponders and the vikes made the playoff one year and I doubt it was Ponders passing skills that got them there. Just as I expected. Minn made the playoff in 2012 and it was on the legs of AP. almost broke the all time rushing record.

    Let’s just hope they don’t move to Butte Montana.

  • RediaR

    Ehhhh, Mack and Sio would have to really show up to be in the running there. And at that point they’d need a new partner in crime to actually be the best group.

  • RediaR

    You don’t want to be the Butte Raiders? What about the Jackson Hole Raiders?

    49ers are considered to have a great O-line.
    They could never keep Seattle out of the backfield.

  • TrevJo

    Interestingly Lynch and Turbin got mostly shut down by Denver. It was Harvin (2 for 45 yds) and Wilson (3 for 26 yds) that did damage running against Denver.

  • the super genius dr robert

    That deserves a laugh classified as out loud.

  • the super genius dr robert

    An L classified as OL.

  • the super genius dr robert

    Depends on if Jackson is a mister or a miss.

  • eastoaklandraider

    9ers

  • SnBG

    In S.F they did fine. In Seattle the crowd noise hurt them.

  • SnBG

    No one will out pass Manning but Rivers and Smith can be had.

  • TrevJo

    Seattle only had 3 good OL last year and those guys missed 19 games. That means on average they had slightly less than 2 good OL on the field each game. They won because of QB, RB, defense, and ST.
