The Las Vegas Raiders have granted Pro Bowl quarterback Derek Carr permission to speak to another NFL team for the first time since they decided he was no longer going to be their man.
Carr, who earned his fourth appearance in the Pro Bowl this term, was benched by the Raiders with two games left in the regular season, despite still harboring a slim chance of making the playoffs at the time.
The QB’s time in Las Vegas is all but over, though he has a no-trade clause in his contract. The Raiders can either trade him or release him but he would have to sign off on any trade. As such, Carr is probably keen on taking his time in order to ensure he makes the right move.
