Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders have all but made their split official. He already posted his goodbye on social media, which, as we know, is when a goodbye has really happened.
With a deadline looming for the Raiders to make a decision on how they’ll move forward, exactly, with the Carr divorce, it’ll be good to look at the most likely outcomes. Will it be a trade? Or will it be a release?
We looked at most likely landing spots previously, but now that we know a little bit more about Carr’s lack of willingness to help the Raiders extend their decision horizon, we can hone in on how this situation is most likely to end.
Let’s take a look.
Less likely Derek Carr rumors outcome: Traded to Jets
The New York Jets have been talking up a big game all offseason so far about how they hope to add a veteran quarterback. We all know they’re talking about Aaron Rodgers. But can anyone really envision Rodgers playing there?
Jimmy Garoppolo or Derek Carr might be more in-play for the Jets. If I had to guess, Jimmy G is the more likely option.
The Jets finally have the makings of a talented team. Sauce Gardner was a great pick and has leveled up their defense. Now, it’s about leveling up the offense. Garoppolo is more reliable and consistent than Carr and will be a better, more steady pick. That’s why this is a less likely outcome.
