The Las Vegas Raiders fell short against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, ending their playoff run and launching Las Vegas into the offseason.
Now the franchise has looming decisions to make and one of them involves the QB position. The team has to sort out the future of quarterback Derek Carr, who is entering the final year of his contract.
If they decide to part ways with Carr, he is being connected to another AFC franchise. When speaking on the possibility Tuesday, NFL.com‘s Marc Sessler pointed to the Colts as a likely suitor if the QB were to become available.

“Colts owner Jim Irsay telegraphed his distrust in Carson Wentz when he penned a letter to fans,” Sessler says. ‘We ended our season in perhaps the worst way possible and missed our chance to compete for history,’ [Irsay] wrote, before adding: ‘The buck stops with me.’”
“Wentz and the Colts feel destined for Splitsville,” Sessler continued. “But the quarterback market lacks juice. An available Carr would vibe with Frank Reich, a masterful coach searching for a long-term answer under center ever since Andrew Luck turned into a Force ghost before the 2019 campaign.”
Derek Carr finished the season with a career-high 4,804 yards passing with 23 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
The NFL writer also notes that the Saints, Steelers and Washington Football team could all be viable options to acquire Derek Carr’s services.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
