Derek Carr is not becoming a member of the ever-growing checklist of quarterbacks to skip out on the Professional Bowl, and that is seemingly making the Las Vegas Raiders very nervous.

Carr’s $32.9 million wage for the 2023 season is assured for harm, and the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement covers gamers who’re injured within the Professional Bowl. So whereas the Raiders shut down their longtime quarterback in anticipation of buying and selling him this offseason, they may must foot the invoice if Carr suffers a critical harm.

The league’s new Professional Bowl Video games make it extremely unlikely any accidents will transpire—significantly to the quarterback. The league eradicated the tackling factor from this yr’s occasion, as a substitute going for a 7-on-7 flag soccer extravaganza.

In different phrases: You are not more likely to see Carr scrambling out of the pocket or evading oncoming rushers.

That stated, it is not less than a little bit curious that Carr would select to take part understanding his future is up within the air.

The Raiders might want to decide on Carr’s standing with the franchise by Feb. 15, the assure date for his 2023 wage no matter harm.
