At the end of the day, anything I say will just be blasted out there, so I’m just going to completely remove myself and just keep trying to play football. It’s been nice just answering football questions. And hopefully, no more drama in the city. That’s what I hope.”

While the fans ponder over the question ‘what if the Raiders recruited the dynamic duo to the team?’, Carr thinks about winning the AFC West division in the 2022 season.

That was what — two to three years ago or something? I don’t know, man. Talk to Dana. I remember that Tom Brady went to Tampa Bay. That’s basically what I remember. I have no idea. Dana has the stories. I love Dana.”
