The Facts: After NFL Network's Michael Silver reported last week, via two sources, that Carr has grown frustrated with the slow pace of discussions on a new lucrative, long-term contract, the QB said he knows a deal will get done sooner or later. "I have an agent who is in charge of that and I am confident that he and [general manager] Mr. [Reggie] McKenzie will work it out," Carr said. "I have complete faith it will get done before training camp. These things take time. The Raiders know I want to be here; this is my family, and I know they want me to be their quarterback."
Diehards Line:Carr enters the final year of his rookie contract, which is set to pay him roughly $978,000 in base salary. But his new contract could set the quarterback market. All sides want Carr to be a Raider "for life." It's only a matter of time before Oakland shells out the cash to make it happen. Carr says he's confident a deal will get done before training camp. If that timeframe comes and goes without a massive new contract, perhaps then the quarterback will get antsy.
