Derek Carr won’t talk contract after camp starts

Raiders' QB Derek Carr says he'll play out the rest of his contract if he doesn't get an extension by the beginning of training camp.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said last week that he has “complete faith” that he and the team will reach agreement on a contract extension before the start of training camp.

On Tuesday, he said that date wasn’t just plucked out of thin air. Carr said that is also the deadline for getting a deal done before the start of his fourth NFL season.

“I wouldn’t answer my phone [to talk about his contract],” Carr said, via Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Carr and Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie have said multiple times this offseason that they want to strike a deal that keeps the quarterback in Oakland for years to come. There was a recent report that Carr has grown frustrated by the pace of talks toward getting that deal done, however, and setting a deadline has proven effective for getting contracts done many times in the past.
