The Oakland Raiders have offered their quarterback a new record deal.
A new record was beaten Thursday in NFL. Derek Carr became the highest paid quarterback in the history of the North American league by extending his contract until 2022 with the Raiders. As he touched nearly $ 980,000 last season, the Oakland star signed a new lease of $ 125 million over five years.
Making the calculation: now with an annual salary of $ 25 million - which allows him to dethrone his counterpart Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck ($ 24.6 million) - the 26-year-old will thus receive about 25 times more than In 2016! "It's done ... I always wanted to be a Raider all my life and I got closer," he said on Twitter.
Just over half of this amount is guaranteed ($ 70 million). The former student of the University of Fresno State, 36th pick of the draft in 2014, won 3937 yards at the pass last season (at 357/560), for 28 touchdowns. And before his fracture of the fibula, it had allowed the Californian franchise to find the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
