There will be a new quarterback in Las Vegas next season. Derek Carr has “moved on” as his brother David keeps saying. The Raiders were clearly ready to move on when they benched him and fired him with two games to go.

That leaves the two big questions being who will be the Raiders’ quarterback next season and where will Derek Carr land?

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler spoke to anonymous coaches to get their thoughts on a few things. Included in those takes were the landing spots of Tom Brady and Derek Carr.

Fowler said he’s spoken to several teams who expect Brady to retire. But a “veteran AFC offensive coach” said Las Vegas is where he expects Brady to play next season.

“I just think with the weapons they have and the familiarity with the offense of Josh McDaniels and the people there, it would be a seamless transition for [Tom Brady].”

Fowler also cited a “veteran AFC coach” (could be the same coach as Brady, but not sure). The coach pointed to Texans general manager Nick Caserio’s ties to Raiders general manager Dave Ziegler and added that “Nick will be looking for a top quarterback. It will be important for him. Derek [Carr] fits this mould.

Fowler also noted that the Texans have 11 picks in this year’s draft to make such a deal with, including two top-12 picks.

David Carr was mentioned as the Texans’ first draft pick, in what Fowler calls a “natural tie.” Although David was a colossal failure as the No. 1 draft pick — and Derek has repeatedly blamed the Texas franchise for his brother’s failures — it’s hard to say whether that “natural bond” actually works in David’s favor. such an agreement.

Derek Carr’s contract becomes guaranteed on February 15, so we should know by then exactly where he’s headed. If it is cut, it will happen on that day.

If he is traded, it will be an unofficial deal at that time which will become official at the start of the league year on March 15. This is also when we expect to hear about Tom Brady’s next team, should he decide to continue playing at 46. .
