Winner-Winner, Chicken-Dinner

1. Derek Carr – Raiders

During this time of the year, rumors fly off the shelves. Well, there are now rumors that the Raiders might move on from Derek Carr. If Carr becomes available on the trade block, could Ryan Pace and Jon Gruden find a way to make another blockbuster trade? The two already made the Khalil Mack trade a couple of years ago, why not Derek Carr too?

I am not sure how much draft capital the team would have to give up for Carr, but my guess is that a 2021 first-round draft pick would be involved. Why should Pace give up another first-round pick? Well, this team has too much talent to be a top pick in 2021. If the Bears are done with Trubisky, bringing in Carr could be a game-changer.

Carr has averaged over 240 yards per game throughout his career. In his last two seasons, he has completed over 68 percent of his passes too. He has a 2.31 touchdown to interception ratio. That is fantastic and would be refreshing for this team. Even better, Carr has more mobility than many give him credit. He would be a great fit for Matt Nagy’s offense. To top it off, his salary is locked up for the next three years at under $20 million per season. I love that.

Next. Pace must sign a veteran quarterback. dark

I am a Mitchell Trubisky supporter and would love to see him get another chance in 2020. However, if Pace can get Carr and then add a playmaking wide receiver like Jalen Reagor in the draft, this offense would take a huge jump this season. If you thought the team was a Super Bowl contender last year, they would be a lock with just these two moves.
