2. Derek Carr

Tom Brady’s world is giving pause to the 32 NFL teams. Until his domino falls, the quarterback landscape won’t settle. Talk about power!

One interesting take is Tom Brady’s services are wanted in Las Vegas. The Raiders are opening a new stadium and the team is ready to contend. Should Brady head to the west coast, that leaves out quarterback Derek Carr.

The six-foot-three quarterback, who turns 29 in March, is still in his prime. The 2014 second rounder earned 4,054 passing yards, 21 touchdowns to eight interceptions, and a quarterback rating of 100.8.

The 2020 season will be Carr’s seventh season as an NFL pro. If the Cowboys were to bring Carr in, he would be reunited with wide receiver Amari Cooper.

For his career, Carr has a 143-62 touchdown ratio, a 64.0 completion percentage, nearly 23,000 passing yards and a quarterback rating of 90.7. He has only missed two regular-season games, so durability isn’t an issue.
