No one knows exactly what the future holds for the Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. Still though, if there’s an upgrade coming in, we know running back Josh Jacobs won’t have a problem with it.
Between the Tom Brady rumors and reluctancy from the Raiders to unequivocally anoint Carr as the starter, it’s a crap shoot. Jacobs was recently quoted in regards to both Carr as a quarterback and what Brady could possibly mean for the Silver and Black. Originally via Adam Schefter of ESPN, the quote may literally be nothing more than praise for Brady, right?
“I think that Derek is an amazing quarterback, I think that he’s actually one of the smartest guys I’ve ever met. I mean, whatever they decide to do, we’ll be in good hands. You can’t ever really compare another quarterback to Tom Brady. But, I think that whatever they decide to do we’ll be in good hands.” -Jacobs on the possible Brady scenario
More to the story or nothing at all?
One thing Jacobs certainly didn’t do was back up Carr the way Terrell Owens once defended Tony Romo. No one is asking the running back to shed tears but he didn’t exactly sound like an emphatic deterrent either. Jacobs is a core player for the Raiders and what he says will be open to criticism and interpretation because of it. Having said that, it doesn’t exactly sound like Jacobs would be heartbroken if Brady were to indeed head to Las Vegas.
Is there something more to the story as far as Jacobs and the Carr clan? Have there been any sort of issues there? Well, it was Carr’s interloping and dimwit brother Darren who threw Jacobs under the bus after a loss last season, which makes you wonder if the Raiders really need these types of distractions moving forward.
