The benching of Derek Carr in Las Vegas has a huge trickle down effect with the future of the Las Vegas Raiders.
On Wednesday, the Raiders announced that Carr was being benched for the team’s final two games of the season in-favor of Jarrett Stidham. Immediately following the announcement, news broke that Carr would be leaving the team and be inactive for the final two weeks of the season. This pretty much ended his tenure in Las Vegas.
But he might not be the only one on his way out.
The team’s star wideout, who was acquired this past offseason from the Packers, Davante Adams, has also casted doubt on his future with the team, refusing to talk about his future with the team:
“I’m not going to sit here and go on and on, but obviously I support my guy,” Adams said, via video from Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We’ve got to finish this season out the best way we can possible with all things considered at this point. Anything else that you guys got, you can leave that for coach or for Derek.”
“Well, we’ve got two games left,” Adams said. “We got the Niners this week and then we’ve got another game to go and finish, so that’s really all I’m focused on.”
“I don’t think anybody was excited about it in here,” Adams said of Carr’s benching, via Mark Anderson of the Associated Press. “I wouldn’t be here right now if he wasn’t here. I think everybody knows how I feel about him.”
After he was acquired from the Packers, Adams signed a five-year, $140 contract extension with the Raiders.
