Derek Carr seems very happy with Raiders’ free agent additions
The Oakland Raiders are getting quarterback Derek Carr plenty of help in the offseason’s early going, and he seems to be all in favor.
Days after trading for wide receiver Antonio Brown, the Raiders reportedly agreed to a record deal with offensive lineman Trent Brown to give Carr some added protection in the pocket. Within moments, the Oakland quarterback took to Twitter to express a simple sentiment.

Carr has every right to be happy. He was sacked 51 times last season, and only two quarterbacks took more sacks than that. The Raiders have spent $120 million on getting him a world-class weapon and a key protector on the offensive line, so with that in mind, his excited reaction is no surprise at all.
