Derek Carr’s Future As Raiders QB In Serious Doubt; Here’s Why

Carr denies 'fractured relationship&apos with Raiders team-mates

The latest victim of Jon Gruden's spontaneous Raiders fire sale, Cooper landed in Dallas Monday in exchange for a 2019 first-rounder, which are becoming more common in Oakland than Warriors sweatshirts and millennial-owned taco joints.

A report from The Athletic questioned whether Carr is still considered a leader in the Raiders locker room, but Smith wasn't afraid to share his opinion of Carr in a fiery rant to reporters Wednesday. The trade came seven weeks after Oakland dealt defensive end Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears, despite the team's previous assertions that it planned to sign him long term.

"The Mack trade was a real stiff jab", one player anonymously told the Athletic. "But the Cooper one was like a knockout punch, especially because we had just walked back in the door from the bye". Our field position was awful all day, so I think all of us need to look at each other. "We are just waiting to see if we will be here next week". "Despite everything the coaches told us at training camp".

"Nobody was happy when we traded Khalil".

The New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars stand out as teams who could have some interest in Carr, and Gruden did suggest the Raiders weren't shopping Cooper before the Cowboys apparently upped the ante. But practically any veteran player could be on the move before next Tuesday's trade deadline, up to and including quarterback Derek Carr. And nobody is happy that we traded Amari. " Smith said. "You never ever want to trade elite, homegrown talent". They are now loaded with five first-round draft picks over the next two years - but it's cost them this season.

As the National Football League trade deadline gets closer to its conclusion Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, teams are seeing what deals they can get to improve their team or stock draft picks for next year.

It's all about accountability, and right now the players on the Silver and Black - according to Smith - have no problem looking in the mirror and facing the reality of the situation.

"Our job is not to second-guess what Coach Gruden and Reggie McKenzie do, " Smith adds.
