Derek Carr, an annual subject of trade rumors, has re-asserted his desire to remain with the Las Vegas Raiders.
"I'd probably quit football if I had to play for somebody else," Carr said. "I am a Raider for my entire life. I'm going to root for one team for the rest of my life -- it's the Raiders. So, I just feel that so strong in my heart I don't need a perfect situation ... to make things right.
"I'd rather go down with the ship, you know what I'm saying, if I have to."
Carr, who turned 30 in March, had been asked about how several of his contemporaries had aired their grievances publicly this offseason.
"I'm that old-school mentality -- I'm playing for one team and that's it," he said. "Whether we've won enough or not, I literally give every bit of energy and effort that I can to this organization and when I sign a contract, I completely, in my mind, have to fulfill that. I committed to that. I put my name on paper.
"It's just how I was raised. I'm from Fresno, California. Born in Fresno. My dad worked in the car business, my mom helped with substitute teaching and all different kinds of stuff at the church, so we didn't have a whole bunch of stuff growing up, so I don't need much."
