Derek Carr will be with a new team in 2023. We are well aware of this after the team decided to bench him for the final two games of the regular season and then both sides mutually decided he would step away from the team.
The 31-year-old confirmed his plans to move on from the organization on Saturday with a cryptic tweet that seems to allude there is more to the story from his exit from the team.
“Thank you to all the people reaching out trying to give me their platform to tell my side of what happened,” Carr tweeted on Saturday morning. “It’s the hardest thing in the world not to jump on every interview and tell the whole truth. Thank you but I’m choosing to move on and give our next city our best.”
His tenure is over and but he isn’t planning to give any interviews about what happened, instead focusing only on getting ready for 2023 elsewhere. That is the best way to handle this since a new team would not want to deal with any unwanted drama and distractions.

Carr is implying there is a “whole truth” that hasn’t been told about what went wrong last year. During the 2022 season, he was benched and there were reports he had a sour relationship with Josh McDaniels. With great expectations, the Raiders went 6-11 behind their new head coach Josh McDaniels, including giving interim head coach Jeff Saturday his only win with the Colts.
Carr signed a three-year, $121.5 million extension this past offseason, but the Raiders can save $30 million if the quarterback is released or traded this upcoming offseason.
He leaves the Raiders as their all-time passing leader (35,222 yards), all-time passing touchdowns leader (217), and second in wins (63-79).WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
