• The Raiders have locked in Derek Carr until 2025 with a $121.5 million contract extension
  • Carr forms a formidable tandem with Davante Adams next season
  • Las Vegas holds true to their promise of keeping Carr despite getting a new head coach

The Las Vegas Raiders vowed to keep Derek Carr even with a new head coach at the helm.

All that was made official after the 31-year-old play-caller agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $121.5 million, according to CBS Sports reporter Josina Anderson.

This means that Carr will stay with the Raiders until the 2025 season.

Moreover, the new contract also means that the three-time Pro Bowler will be the longest-tenured quarterback in the AFC.

Adding the new deal with his current one, Carr is now set to earn as much as $141.3 million over the next four seasons.

In addition, $100 million of that will be due over the next three years.

Carr had his share of struggles last season. Regardless, he managed to finish with a career-high 4,804 passing yards and a rating of 94.0, despite not having a definitive compliment in the passing attack for Pro Bowl tight end Darren Waller.

The deal comes not long after the Raiders signed wideout Davante Adams from the Green Bay Packers.

The five-time Pro Bowler also agreed to a massive new deal that would see him and Carr play together moving forward.

Adams was traded by the Packers to the Raiders this past March, while Las Vegas sent their 2022 first and second-round picks to Green Bay as part of the deal.

The native of California was offered a five-year deal worth $141.25 million, considered the richest deal ever for a wide receiver.

"It is a dream to be a Raider," Adams said when he was introduced to the media. "In my third-grade yearbook...I said I wanted to be an NBA or an NFL star, and I was wearing a Charles Woodson jersey."

With the signing, Las Vegas now has one of the league’s most dynamic offenses.

Carr will have his best set of playmakers with Adams teaming with receiver Hunter Renfrow, Waller, and running back Josh Jacobs.

Carr has a history of playing with Adams. Both played two seasons in college at Fresno State.

In their final year together in 2013, Adams had 131 catches for 1,719 yards and 24 TDs.
