NFL: Oakland Raiders at Tennessee Titans

Derek Carr (7th Year) 6’3″ 218

The Raiders have continued to stick with Carr as
their QB largely because he showed such promise early in his career & due to how much money the club has allocated to him. The team has given him every opportunity to regain his early high potential form. He was a more productive player in 2019 from both a statistical & performance standpoint yet is still in a make or break year in 2020. The organization needs to see him win games consistently & put the team in position to compete for an AFC title in order to extend the relationship with Carr beyond this season.

2019 Production

4,054 Yards 70.4 CMP% 21 TD 8 INT.  361 completions 513 attempts.


Carr has started 94 games for the Raiders since entering the league in 2014. After going 12-3 in 2016 he has not produced a winning season since.  6-9 (2017) 4-12 (2018) 7-9 (2019)


Marcus Mariota (6th Year) 6’4″ 224

Mariota signed a two year deal with Las Vegas this offseason as a prized free agent & will receive 7.5 million in guaranteed money. Mariota showed flashes during his time in Tennessee, particularly early on (2015-17) Mariota fell out of favor with the team in 2019 & was benched for Ryan Tannehill. His time in Nashville was not a failure however. He showed elements of becoming an elite quarterback at times & the Raiders hope he can re-build himself in their program.

2019 Production

1.203 Yards 59.4 CMP % 7 TD 2 INT. 95 completions 160 attempts.


Mariota started 61 games  for Tennessee (2015-19) and has played in five playoff games. He has thrown for over 13,000 yards 76 TD’s & 44 INT.


Nathan Peterman (4th Year) 6’2″ 225

Peterman is a favorite of Jon Gruden. He will be the third quarterback again in 2020 for the team. He has the athletic instincts, mobility & toughness that Gruden loves at the position. In his two career starts, Peterman has underwhelmed but still is considered a player with potential to develop into a solid backup player.

Peterman performed well during 2019 preseason action & will most likely make the 53 man roster again in 2020.
