Derek Carr’s Future As Raiders QB In Serious Doubt; Here’s Why

Derek Carr has lost confidence of teammates, appearing to 'cry after being sacked' didn't help [report]

The Oakland Raiders shipped off former first-round picks Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper in jaw-dropping trades this season.

The Raiders (1-5) are coming off a bye week and have only one win this season against the Browns on September 30.

Gruden has had a busy week also trading Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys in return for a first round pick.

Jon Gruden's second stint as head coach of the Oakland Raiders is off to a rough start, and it sounds like he has quickly lost the trust of many of his players.

"You have to wonder if we haven't been playing for draft picks all along", one player said. "We are just waiting to see if we will be here next week". "Despite everything the coaches told us at training camp".

Tight end Lee Smith was willing to discuss the trades on the record, saying he was concerned that a number of his teammates may lose interest in the 2018 season. "I am a leader on this team and I am under contract next year, but more importantly I care about all my teammates".

"Nobody was happy when we traded Khalil".

Gruden said publicly that he was not entertaining trade offers for Cooper, and he was apparently telling the team the same in private. Though, Gruden tells ESPN's Chris Mortensen and affirmed that Derek Carr would be safe and they are "not trading anyone else", and "trying to stay competitive".

It's all about accountability, and right now the players on the Silver and Black - according to Smith - have no problem looking in the mirror and facing the reality of the situation.

"Our job is not to second-guess what Coach Gruden and Reggie McKenzie do, " Smith adds. Guys don't work their ass off year-round because they are anxious about the team being good in two or three years, they work hard to win. Now.
