The Raiders once again proclaimed their love for Derek Carr.
And once again Johnathan Abram Jersey , talked about drafting his replacement.General Manager Mike Mayock walked that seemingly paradoxical line again during his pre-draft press conference, maintaining that incumbent Derek Carr is their guy.“I’ve said before, . . . Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback, and we believe that,” Mayock said, via Matt Kawahara of the . “Beyond that , just like at any other position, we’re going to do our due diligence. If we found somebody we liked better, or thought had a bigger upside, you’ve got to do the right thing for the organization.“But we love Derek. We love what he brings to the table. But like every other position, we’re going to do all of our due diligence. And I happen to work with a head coach that absolutely loves the position. And we’re always going to know about those guys.”That has to make Carr feel perfectly secure. Of course, being a quarterback for Jon Gruden who wasn’t hand-picked by Jon Gruden means that a certain level of insecurity is just going to be part of your life.The Raiders have worked out possible top pick Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins Maxx Crosby Jersey , and they have three first-round picks, so they have the opportunity to make moves if necessary. Drew Lock will be using the VR for the time being. And that time could be at least eight weeks if he starts on IR.Via Jeff Legwold of, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said it was possible his rookie quarterback could start the season on injured reserve because of his severely sprained right thumb.“Obviously because it’s his throwing hand and a thumb, that’s a pretty serious injury for a quarterback,” Fangio said. “It will be some time before we know exactly where he’s at and how much time he would miss.”Asked specifically about the possibility of starting the season on IR (which would require keeping him on the 53-man roster through final cuts), Fangio replied: “Yeah Hakeem Butler Jersey , it could be if we don’t think he can play for a while. The bad thing about it is because of the injury he can’t do much.”Lock won’t play or practice for the rest of the preseason, and will only do conditioning and virtual reality work, after he suffered the injury in Monday’s game. X-rays on Lock’s thumb were negative, but it’s clearly a significant problem for him.“[I’m] trusting the [training] staff in there to get me back as soon as possible,” Lock said. “Whenever that is, we’ll decide on whenever I’m 100 percent ready to go.”With the second-rounder on the sidelines Chris Lindstrom Jersey , Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien will compete for backup duties behind Joe Flacco.
