Carr signs richest deal in NFL

Carr signs richest deal in NFL

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr signed a $25 million per year contract extension Thursday morning that makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL, and keeps him with the Raiders for years.

In an early morning Tweet, Carr said that he’s wanted to be a Raider for life, and he’s one step closer to that reality.

The five-year, $125-million contract elevates Carr, 26, past all of the league’s top quarterbacks, but after three seasons the former Bakersfield Christian High and Fresno State star proved that he belonged in an elite class.

Carr has thrown 81 touchdowns in his first three seasons and helped lead the Raiders to their first playoffs appearance in 14 years last year. 

A second-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, Carr immediately became the Raiders starter and finished with 21 touchdown passes. He has thrown for more than 3,000 yards in each of his first three season, but last season was marred when he broke his league in the regular season finale.
