Derek Carr Reportedly Left Team After Hearing of Raiders Benching

It looks as if Derek Carr has officially left the building.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Carr and the Raiders agreed that he would step away from the team to “avoid the obvious distractions.” That means Carr won’t practice and will be listed as missing for non-injury-related reasons.

Carr has struggled of late. In his last five starts, he has thrown for 1,087 yards, nine touchdowns and nine interceptions. The nadir came Sunday in a 13-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, when he went 16-of-30 for 174 yards, one touchdown and three picks.

Carr signed a $121.5 million extension in April and will see more than $40 million become guaranteed should he not be able to pass a physical. In trading or cutting him by Feb. 15, the Raiders would save $29.25 million in cap space for 2023.
