He was originally a 62nd overall pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. He was also part of the Patriots’ Super Bowl champion teams in the 2014-2015 and 2016-2017 seasons.

It was tough to see Derek Carr go, but knowing the Raiders sign QB Jimmy Garoppolo, it’s good to have his level of experience on the field. Just to note, the Raiders have the 7th overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and may consider picking a QB.
