Former Raiders QB Derek Carr to meet with a ‘handful’ of teams during the NFL Scouting Combine this week

Free agent quarterback Derek Carr will face a “handful” of teams this week in Indianapolis during the NFL Scouting Unite, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said, according to sources, on Monday during an appearance on Full NFL Access.

Carr, who was released by the Raiders on Feb. 14 after being on the bench for the last two games of the 2022 season, has already faced the Saints and Jets while searching for his next destination. And now Carr is using every team in Indianapolis to discuss other options.

Chances are multiple teams will be in contention for the new QB in 2023, but Carr has a time advantage over these other players. While other future free-agent quarterbacks must wait until free agents begin on March 15 to sign, Carr may sign now as Las Vegas released him.

While Rapoport added that he expects Carr to sign with the team before then, the 31-year-old quarterback won’t be in a hurry to make a decision as that date is still more than two weeks away. His brother, David Carr, said last week on the NFL Network that Derek wanted to do “due diligence” by visiting as many places as possible to determine the best landing spot and suggested it would be a “long process” to do so. . his choice.

Which team he will land with is still unclear, but it is clear that Carr is fulfilling his desire to take his time and talk to multiple teams to find the perfect team. And the next step in that process will be his trip to Indianapolis this week.
