Jon Gruden gave Derek Carr a serious vote of confidence as the quarterback of the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday.
\"I really think Derek is a heck of a player and I got a lot of respect for what he has done with some tough circumstances,\" Gruden said.
\"So I\'m not going to answer every media rumor out there. I just can\'t do it. I\'m just going to listen to my Sirius Rock n\' Roll classic vinyl [station] and keep working. But I love what Derek Carr did, love what he brings to our team and anxious to continue to build around him.\"
Carr signed a five-year, $125 million contract extension in June of 2017.
The Raiders have been linked to Tom Brady.
