Quarterback Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders have agreed to a three-year, $121.5 million contract extension on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

The deal also includes a full no-trade clause, which will keep the veteran passer in Raiders colors through the 2025 season.

The 31-year-old’s original five-year, $125 million deal is set to expire at the end of the 2022 campaign.

Having just completed his eighth year with the organization after being drafted by them in the second round of the 2014 draft, Carr helped lead Las Vegas to the playoffs for just the second time in the last six years.

With it came a career year for the quarterback, posting a personal best 4,804 yards along with 23 touchdowns and 14 interceptions alongside a 68.4% completion rating.

He holds Raiders franchise records with 31,700 career passing yards and 193 touchdowns.

It’s understandable to see Carr as an afterthought in a loaded AFC West division, however.

What’s expected to be one of the most powerful aerial divisions in football already featured Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers before the Denver Broncos acquired Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks earlier this offseason.
