Could this be the end of Derek Carr in a Las Vegas Raiders uniform?
On Wednesday it was announced by head coach Josh McDaniels that Carr has been benched and they are now turning to Jarrett Stidham for its game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Raiders benching Carr might have more to do with the fact that the team doesn't want him to get hurt in the final two games. That doesn’t mean that he can’t return in 2023, but it gives the Raiders options. If he plays and gets hurt, the Raiders would almost have no choice but to bring him back next year regardless if there are better options out there.
Despite their 6-9 record, the Raiders haven't officially been eliminated from playoff contention. Their chances of getting in are remote, especially with their final two games at home against the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.
