Shark Bites

CSN Bay Area reports that Carr suffered a high ankle sprain and an MCL sprain. Oakland has a well-timed bye in Week 5, but both of Carr's injuries often cost players multiple weeks. We'll see what the timetable is here. Matt Schaub missed the trip to London to be with his wife after an emergency C-section. Assuming he's back for Week 6, he'd likely start over Matt McGloin, who threw 2 INTs in relief of Carr on Sunday.

According to Raiders beat writer Tashan Reed, the Raiders will hold “active competitions” for 4 starting O-line spots. That includes LG, C, RG and RT, with only Kolton Miller locked in at LT. This unit will be under the tutelage of OL coach Carmen Bricillo, formerly with HC Josh McDaniels in New England. The potentially high turnover here is worth monitoring for Derek Carr and the Vegas offense.

The Raiders and QB Derek Carr agreed to a 3-year, $121.5 million contract extension, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That makes Carr the league's 5th-highest-paid QB and keeps him in Vegas through the 2025 season. WR Davante Adams is signed through 2026. Carr has finished between QB13 and QB16 in each of the last 3 seasons and has upside beyond that in 2022.

Raiders HC Josh McDaniels said “there’s no doubt about it” when asked if QB Derek Carr will remain with Las Vegas for next season. "I really am excited about this opportunity to work together," McDaniels said. "I know what he's done. And I know what we might be able to do going forward together." McDaniels, speaking at the Combine, said that the team hasn’t yet opened extension talks with the veteran passer. Carr, 31, has often been floated as a potential trade chip in an offseason that's lacking even decent available starting QBs. He enters a contract year alongside the new HC and new GM Dave Ziegler.

The Raiders are prepared to give QB Derek Carr a contract extension that would keep him with the team beyond 2022, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Carr has 1 year left on his current deal, but new HC Josh McDaniels and GM Dave Ziegler reportedly want to commit to him long term. And McDaniels was Carr's top choice for HC, according to Rapoport.

The Raiders are set to hire Josh McDaniels as their new HC, ESPN Adam Schefter reports. McDaniels has spent 13 of the past 16 seasons as New England's OC under Bill Belichick. In between his 2 stints with the Pats, McDaniels spent a little less than 2 years as Denver's HC. He went 8-8 in the 1st season and then 3-9 in the 2nd before getting fired after Week 13. We'll see if McDaniels fares better in his 2nd chance at a HC job.
