UFC president Dana White dropped a bombshell last week, claiming he set up a deal for the Las Vegas Raiders that would have seen Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski become members of the team in 2020.
A potential union with Tom Brady would have sent Derek Carr packing to his new team. That’s a problem given the fact that Carr is still slinging it out in Vegas.
Raiders owner Mark Davis made it worse by not exactly denying it.
On Tuesday, reporters asked Derek Carr if he’s immune to the Tom Brady talk at this point. “By now, I would hope so,” Carr said, laughing. “I mean, it is what it is.”
“It really doesn’t matter,” Carr added. “At the end of the day, anything I say will just be blasted out there so I’m just going to completely remove myself and just keep trying to play football. It’s been nice just answering football questions. And hopefully, no more drama in the city. That’s what I hope.”
It’s an unfortunate situation to be in for Carr, who is arguably a top-10 quarterback in the league. However, the only thing he can do is move forward and understand that this is a business.
In 2021, he threw for a career-high 4,804 yards, which ranked fifth in the NFL ahead of Joe Burrow, Josh Allen, and even MVP Aaron Rodgers.
