David Carr says Raiders shouldn’t ditch his brother, QB Derek Carr
October 19, 2018 | Raiders Wire
Rumors swirl around Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and his uncertain future with Oakland. Coach Jon Gruden, intentionally or not, has steered his team into rebuilding mode, and all of his players are being evaluated.
While on 95.7 The Game’s The Damon Bruce Show, Carr’s brother and NFL Media analyst David Carr said the Raiders should build around their 2014 second-round pick.
“Derek’s played at an MVP level in this league before,” Carr told Bruce. “He didn’t just wake up all the sudden and forget how to play quarterback.
“He’s an extremely talented kid. He works harder than anybody that I know. And that combination is going to lead to success more often than not. You just gotta fix the things around him.”
But Carr also conceded to Bruce it’s possible Gruden won’t feel the same way at some point and trade or release his brother. The Giants have already surfaced as a potential suitor for Oakland’s quarterback.
“That’s the thing that you have to worry about, honestly. If you look at just the track record, Jon hasn’t consistently kept guys around. He has consistently traded guys,” Carr told Bruce.
Carr also mentioned rumors about WR Amari Cooper and added the obvious – the Raiders traded star defensive end Khalil Mack – so anything is possible.
But Gruden has linked himself to Derek Carr since he arrived in Oakland.
“He’s the strength of this football team. And we’re going to get him to play better. I said it when I got here: If he doesn’t play well, I’ve failed,” Gruden said during his press conference Tuesday.
If Gruden did ditch Carr, it would be a massive about-face for the coach. But the Raiders were confident they’d retain Mack before ultimately trading him, which set the table for Gruden’s rebuild.
Gruden and Carr have 10 weeks of football left this season to prove their pairing is a good one. Gruden has already shown he’s willing to trade any player, and if the two fail, Carr could be shown the door.
