Contract-year QB Derek Carr is confident an extension will be in place by training camp.
NFL Network's Mike Silver reported last week that Carr had "grown frustrated" with the "slow pace" of talks. "These things take time," Carr said. "The Raiders know I want to be here; this is my family, and I know they want me to be their quarterback." Carr is upping the public pressure, both through leaks and direct statements. Quarterback talks are never easy, but Carr will likely have a new deal before Week 1. May 22 - 2:37 PM

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports contract-year QB Derek Carr has "grown frustrated" with the "slow pace" of extension talks.

Per Silver, Carr is "extremely eager" to hammer out an extension before training camp, but the team hasn't reached out to his agent in two-plus weeks since the draft. Carr's patience is "wearing thin." We still have roughly two months until camps open, but this is going to be a tricky negotiation. Carr is pushing to pass Andrew Luck as the NFL's highest-paid quarterback.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said he feels "good" about getting an extension done with Derek Carr before training camp.

Carr said earlier this week that his goal was to have a deal in place by the start of training camp and McKenzie seems to have a similar vision. The 26-year-old missed time with a broken fibula late last season but has been a full participant at OTAs. He'll earn a base salary of $977,519 in the final year of his rookie deal.

The Raiders will play the Patriots on Nov. 19 in Mexico City.

The game is on a Sunday, and will kick off at 4:25PM ET. Last season, the Raiders' Mexico City trip was a Monday night game. Per NBC Sports Bay Area, the Raiders will also host the Cowboys for Sunday Night Football in Week 15.

Derek Carr (fibula) has been a full participant in OTAs.

"I've been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything," Carr said. "I'm truly blessed that (the injury) wasn't worse." With Carr's health in order, the sides can focus on hammering out a contract extension.
Apr 18 - 4:24 PM

Derek Carr said he wants to work out an extension with the Raiders before training camp.

Based on his comments Monday, it is a goal he expects to meet. "The communication from both sides has been great," Carr said. "It’s not like some divide or anything. We’re a family, so we’re just trying to figure all of that out." Along with Carr, the Raiders are interested in extending Khalil Mack and RG Gabe Jackson this summer. It will not be surprising if all three deals get done before camp opens at the end of July.
Apr 17 - 8:59 PM

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said extension talks with walk-year QB Derek Carr will ramp up after the draft.

"He knows what we’re trying to do in free agency," McKenzie said. "The communication has been ongoing, just talking about the philosophy of a contract and the thought process around it. Hopefully when the serious talks start going, then it’s going to be easier." The Raiders also would like to work out extensions with Khalil Mack and RG Gabe Jackson before training camp, but Carr will be first in line. It will be shocking if the two sides do not get it done over the summer.
Mar 30 - 9:45 AM

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said Derek Carr (broken leg) will be a full-go for OTAs.

Carr told LT Donald Penn he was "almost 100 percent" in February, so this comes as no surprise. Even with their pending relocation certain to be a distraction, the Raiders look set for a great season on the field as long as Carr stays healthy. Carr should sign a long-term extension this offseason.

Derek Carr (broken leg) told LT Donald Penn he is "almost 100 percent."

Penn relayed the news while sharing an NFL Network set with David Carr, who added his brother plans to get in a "full offseason." Perhaps the Raiders take it slow with their franchise quarterback during OTAs, but there is no reason to worry about his availability. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, Carr should land a long-term extension before the start of the season.
Feb 23 - 8:50 AM

Derek Carr will have more freedom at the line of scrimmage in 2017.

"There’s been a lot made about his command at the line of scrimmage. There’s certainly going to be opportunities for Derek to do that," new OC Todd Downing said. "Where I see him needing a little bit more command is just being able to share his thoughts of gameplans. Being a student of the game, as he already is, but vocalize what he likes and doesn’t like." Carr had limited pre-snap freedom under ex-OC Bill Musgrave. Entering his fourth season, he’s going to have a lot more input on the Raiders' offense. Playing behind a top-five line with most of his weapons returning, Carr is a good bet to build on his 2016 stats.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said extending the contracts of Derek Carr and Khalil Mack is a top priority.

"Those two guys are not only great players but they are great men," McKenzie said. "They are true Raiders and I want to make sure we do the best that we can to make sure that they stay Raiders." Carr is entering the last year of his rookie deal while Mack will have two years remaining when Oakland picks up his fifth-year option. Carr's absence was felt in the playoffs as rookie Connor Cook struggled in a lopsided loss to Houston. The Raiders have over $46 million in cap space. That should give them more than enough to sign both players long term.
Jan 24 - 3:49 PM

Speaking Monday, Derek Carr admitted his finger was broken, not just dislocated.

Carr injured his pinkie in Week 12. His play went drastically downhill afterward, as Carr completed just 55.5 percent of his passes over his final four appearances. That's compared to 66.4 percent before the injury. The offseason concern, of course, is Carr's broken leg. Both injuries should be healed well in advance of training camp.
Jan 3 - 6:11 PM

Derek Carr (leg) has reportedly avoided ligament damage.

That's according to his brother, David. Carr is an extremely long-shot to return for a theoretical Super Bowl appearance, but should be 100 percent for the Raiders' offseason program.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 05:36:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Derek Carr (leg) is considered an "extreme long-shot" for the Super Bowl if the Raiders are able to make it there.

Tuesday's surgery to repair a broken fibula reportedly went extremely well, but Carr still faces a 6-8 week recovery at minimum. Super Bowl Sunday is six Sundays from now. According to the surgeon who repaired Carr's leg, the bone had already begun "healing itself." We likely won't see Carr in a game before next summer. It's a tall task to ask Matt McGloin to guide them to SB51.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 11:06:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Derek Carr (broken leg) will have a 6-8 week recovery timetable after he undergoes surgery on Tuesday.

The timetable means Carr could potentially return for the Super Bowl if he hits the absolute lowest part of the range, but he is likely out for the rest of the season. Matt McGloin will lead Oakland into the playoffs with Carr sidelined. The impending free agent could earn himself a nice paycheck with a strong showing the next several weeks.
