The Las Vegas Raiders will likely work up until February 15 in their effort to trade Derek Carr, who has a contract that locks in $40.4 million in guaranteed money on that date.
While ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned several teams that might show interest in Carr, some of those clubs must first fill coaching vacancies, which puts roster moves on hold.
Furthermore, this offseason, we could see other notable passers on the move in the coming weeks. So, quarterback-needy clubs may eye starting-caliber signal-callers other than Carr.
With uncertainties in the coaching ranks and some intriguing names in the quarterback carousel, the Raiders may not be able to capitalize on Carr’s trade value at the moment.
Las Vegas Raiders impacted by quarterback-needy teams coaching situations
Among those quarterback-needy squads, the Washington Commanders, Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans need a head coach and/or an offensive coordinator. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who will lose Tom Brady to retirement, have an offensive play-caller opening on their coaching staff as well.
