Las Vegas Raiders Officially Inform QB He's Been Released

It's a move that's been coming for weeks, especially after Derek Carr told the Las Vegas Raiders that he won't accept a trade this off-season, but now, the team have officially parted ways with the franchise leader in Touchdowns, yards and most Quarterback categories. 

Many within the organization reportedly believed that Carr was 'soft' and couldn't play in colder climates, and led to the franchise losing faith in him, and now, Carr hits the open market for the first time in his career, expecting to be one of the most sought after players in free agency.

Carr's final season in Las Vegas was a solid one, ending with 3,522 passing yards, 24 Touchdowns to 14 Interceptions, with a Pro Bowl nomination on top of that, so now, expect him to be pursued heavily in the coming days, as he is free to sign immediately.
