Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said he’s not worried following numerous reports about him possibly being on the chopping block or that his teammates have issues with him.
“The amount of texts that I received yesterday, people hitting me up former teammates, a whole bunch of teammates obviously that are on the team now just saying, ‘Don’t worry about this crap man, we got your back,'” the Oakland QB shared Thursday when he appeared on JT the Brick show, according to TMZ.

The 1-5 quarterback said when “you lose” rumors and speculations surface like what’s been coming out about him, but it’s just not true.
“A lot of people don’t like going through tough times, but I tell you what, I love it,” he added. “I actually embrace it.”
Carr continued, “And I think the people that can get through those times, the people that can still be the same person as they go through those times, those are the ones that make it out better. And I’m definitely one of those. I’m here and I’m gonna be here.”
“I’m not going to speculate today. I don’t see us making any more trades, certainly, I don’t see us trading our quarterback,” the Oakland coach said.
