The Las Vegas Raiders have benched quarterback Derek Carr with two games remaining in the regular season. After he was benched, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was not spotted by reporters during the day’s practice.
That is because he and the team agreed he would step away from the team to not be a distraction to them going forward.
How does his college WR feel about this move after he chose to come to Las Vegas to play alongside Carr? When asked about Carr being benched for the rest of the season, Adams had a blunt response.
“Obviously, I don’t think anybody was excited about it in here,” Adams told reporters. “Him being one of my really good friends, the reason why I came here in the first place. I mean, I wouldn’t be here right now if he wasn’t here. I think everybody knows how I feel about him.”

“I support my guy but we got to finish out this season the best way we can possible, with all things considered at this point.”
Adams signed a five-year, $140 million deal with the Raiders, so he is stuck there no matter what happens with Carr during the offseason. The wideout has $31.4 million in dead cap in 2023 and $23.6 million in 2024.
Through 15 games, he has caught 88 balls for 1,290 yards and 12 touchdowns.
It remains unclear who will be tossing him the ball going forward if Carr is not back under center next season.
A three-time Pro Bowler who has thrown for 3,522 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions this year, Carr had started 91 consecutive games for the Raiders, the longest active streak by any QB in the NFL.
The Raiders are just 6-9 on the year.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
