Jon Gruden Eager To \'Build Around\' Derek Carr 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Feb 28, 2020 12:47 pm

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.
