Raiders reward QB Derek Carr with record $125 million deal

Up A Richer Deal for Raiders Jackson

Former NFL quarterback David Carr shot a video of his brother Derek Carr working out, right after he signed his new deal with the Oakland Raiders. But the pact, while making him the first player in National Football League history to reach $25 million per year, was not entirely money-driven. Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck previously topped the list, averaging a $24.6 million salary. It includes $70 million guaranteed and $40 million guaranteed at signing.

The contract, according to ESPN and broken down on overthecap.com, has a first-year payout of $25,175,00 and includes a $12.5 million signing bonus, a $7.5 million roster bonus and a salary of $5 million. The largest is Carr's desire to see other star Raiders receive extensions, and his deal gives the team some flexibility to keep important players in house. Carr went on to win the game in walk-off fashion by throwing a 41-yard touchdown pass to Seth Roberts. He wants to eat some Chick-fil-A, buy something nice for his wife, Heather, and donate money to his church and charity groups in places like Haiti that are important to him. "The other thing that was important to me is that we didn't worry about what other people were going to do or doing".

"I was like, 'How do we keep my teammates?' " Carr said. When I got drafted, this is where I wanted to be anyway. Carr had to deal with comparisons to older brother David, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2002 draft by the Houston Texans, also out of Fresno State, who had washed out to become more journeyman quarterback than franchise bedrock. Both sides wanted it to get done, and it was about family members figuring out to get along.

So if Carr's contract did little more for upper-echelon quarterbacks than confirm for them where the market was already headed, then does it mean anything for someone like Jimmy Garoppolo?

"My No. 1 goal is to make sure that I give everything that I have to this organization", Carr said.

The Raiders' WR has been impressive in his first two seasons, starting all 32 games en route to 155 receptions, 2,223 receiving yards, and 11 TDs. "I don't feel like I deserve it".

CARR on the likelihood that two or three or four QBs will surpass his deal relatively soon: "I don't care if they all do".

"I don't care if they all do".

"You can give me a dollar, you can give me $25 million, it doesn't matter to me". Laughs. "I don't care about the stats".
