Derek Carr: "I'm ready to do absolutely everything"

Derek Carr:

The Raiders quarterback believes fans that don't stay faithful to the franchise following the recent vote to move the team to Las Vegas were never really fans to begin with.

But for the players and coaches, many of whom may not even be with the team when it arrives in Las Vegas in three years, the immediate focus is on building on a 12-4 season that gave the Raiders their first playoff berth since 2002.

"We're not going to split up like you've seen other cities do", Carr told The Mercury News on Monday. "We're not going to do things like that". A big part of the deal that is causing a delay in the deal is, the compensation the Seahawks want to get for Lynch and his contract they will be giving to the Raiders. How do I embarrass him?' and now to go to him and say, 'What do you have on me? But as anyone who has paid attention to Lynch in the past has learned, the only way we'll ever really know if he's going to be a Raider will come when he actually signs the contract or when he's on the field wearing silver and black. The Raiders finished 2016 ranked 6th in yardage and 7th in scoring, despite losing Derek Carr for the final game and Latavius Murray for 2 others.

There is an increasingly likely chance that Marshawn Lynch ends up playing for the Oakland Raiders in 2017. Carr said his agent Tim Younger and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie have been in constant communication.

"We're a family, so we're just trying to figure all of that out", Carr said.

The Raiders will play the upcoming season in Oakland.

"Marshawn is one of the best running backs I've played against in my short career so far", Raiders edge rusher Khalil Mack said Monday, the start of the team's offseason program. "To take care of our fans here and make sure we enjoy our last times". Lynch will turn 31 on Saturday and the question over how much he has left in the tank for a runner who enjoys contact is a major question mark. "It wasn't hard for me to take that boot off, and take my first step, if that helps". It's ultimate focus for us to lock in on what we have to do right now. I would've rooted for whichever crappy replacement team Philly eventually got.

That status quo has Lynch wanting to play for the Raiders and the Raiders wanting Lynch, but at the right price in terms of both salary and possible compensation for the Seahawks in a trade.
