Raiders sign second-round pick Derek Carr

ALAMEDA — The Raiders signed second-round pick Derek Carr to a four-year contract.

The deal announced Wednesday makes the quarterback the fifth of Oakland’s eight draft picks to sign a rookie contract.

Carr said he wanted to get his contract signed so he can focus on the transition to the NFL.

Carr was picked 36th overall after being one of the most productive quarterbacks in college football last season. He threw for 5,083 yards and 50 touchdowns with only eight interceptions at Fresno State.

He comes to Oakland as a backup to starter Matt Schaub. The Raiders traded a sixth-round pick to the Houston Texans for Schaub in March.

Matt McGloin, who made five starts last season, is also on the roster.

Terrelle Pryor, last season’s opening day starter for the Raiders, was traded to the Seattle Sehawks for a seventh-round pick.Derek CarrMatt SchaubNFLOakland RaidersOakland Raiders & NFL
