It’s only a matter of time before Derek Carr strikes a rich, new contract with the Oakland Raiders. He knows that and the Raiders know that.

Carr is approaching the fourth and final year in his rookie contract. It was reported the quarterback was growing concerned about the stalled progress in his extension, but he put those rumors to rest on Monday.

“I have an agent who is in charge of that and I am confident that he and Mr. (general manager Reggie) McKenzie will work it out. I am only focused on becoming a better football player and helping my teammates become better players,” Carr said, according to Anthony Galaviz of the Fresno Bee.

“I have complete faith it will get done before training camp. These things take time. The Raiders know I want to be here; this is my family, and I know they want me to be their quarterback.”

McKenzie has expressed the same sentiment, stating publicly that he hopes Carr will be a Raider for the remainder of his career.

Carr was named to the past two Pro Bowls and helped lead the Raiders to the playoffs last season, ending their 13-year drought.
