Derek Carr defends himself against talk that he cried after being sacked

Derek Carr

There has been a lot of talk throughout the season about Derek Carr not being on the best terms with his head coach or his teammates, but the quarterback says there is no truth to the latest report of friction in Oakland.

Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic wrote on Tuesday that the relationship between Carr and his teammates has become “fractured,” in part because it looked like Carr cried after being sacked and injuring his arm against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6.

“They saw his face. They heard his whimper. They witnessed him explain on the sidelines. They assuredly watched it again in film session,” Thompson wrote. “It’s hard to see how Carr can lead this team again.”

In response to the report, Carr’s brother Darren took to Twitter to list all the injuries Derek has played through during his NFL career. Carr then weighed in and said there was “not one tear” after he was hit against Seattle.

Carr also addressed the narrative in Thompson’s story that the QB is on borrowed time in Oakland.

Jon Gruden now has three first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft after he traded Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper. There have already been rumblings that the Raiders could move on from Carr after the season because of the way his contract is structured, and no one would be shocked if Gruden did just that.
