Derek Carr tells Raiders he is not pushing back their $40 million decision

Derek Carr has made it clear he has no plans to extend the February 15 deadline trigger on his contract to help facilitate a trade. The Las Vegas Raiders have three days after the Super Bowl to move Carr, or otherwise the quarterback's $40.4 million in future guaranteed money becomes fully guaranteed.

Now, Carr says he feels giving the Raiders more time just would not be in his best interest. “I don’t think that would be best for me,” Carr said, per Pro Football Talk

Carr wants to win a Super Bowl

Carr, who will be turning 32 in March, wants to go somewhere where he can compete for a Super Bowl. Carr has been in the NFL since 2014 and he is a four-time Pro Bowler. There are teams who will be looking to add a starting quarterback this offseason and Carr will certainly draw interest.

“I just want to win. There’s a lot of teams that want to win. I’m just looking for teams that have made that decision consistently, that they’ll continually choose to do whatever it takes to put a winning program out there.

And so, for me, I just wanna win a championship. That’s at the forefront of my mind. It’s not money. It’s not this; it’s not that. I just want to win. I’ve thrown for the yards. I have the records. I’ve done the Pro Bowls.

It’s fun, and I’m thankful for all of it. But, as you guys have known me, that’s not at all why I do it. I want to win a championship. So that’s on the forefront. That doesn’t guarantee wherever I go to we can automatically do it, but I’m just trying to find the place where I have the best chance possible," Carr explained.
