Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has agreed to a three-year $ 121.5 million contract extension, a source told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Carr received a trade ban clause as part of the deal, a Fowler source said.
The deal, first announced Wednesday by the NFL Network, keeps Carr under contract with the Raiders for the 2025 season.
Carr, 31, is entering the final year of his current contract with Raiders and will earn just under $ 19.8 million in basic salary in 2022. The three-time Pro Bowler has spent his entire eight-year career at Raiders after being selected by them in the second round in 2014
Carr moved to a career-high 4,804 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2021, leading the Raiders to a 10-7 record and a wild card place in the AFC playoffs – their second since 2002 – despite a turbulent season marked by the resignation of coach John Gruden and the arrest of successor Henry Rugs III.
Carr is the all-time leader of the Raiders in passes (31,700) and touchdown passes (193).
Carr’s extension is the latest move in busy off-season for the Raiders, who are looking to return to the post-season in 2022, despite playing in the suddenly competitive AFC West.
The Raiders’ big out-of-season move was to sign Davante Adams, Carr’s teammate at Fresno State, for a record deal after acquiring the star’s successor in a deal with the Green Bay Packers. Las Vegas also signed champions Chandler Jones to strengthen the pass.
Carr is the longest-serving quarterback at AFC West, which also includes 2018 MVP Patrick Mahoms of Kansas City, third-year star Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers and newcomer Russell Wilson of Denver.
