Why Derek Carr got the big bucks

Since Carr entered the league, only Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Russell Wilson have been better at producing touchdowns and avoiding interceptions. Each has been paid handsomely in that time frame, while Carr was still on his rookie contract.

Who is the best NFL team from the past 30 years? (1:51)

Mike Reiss ESPN Staff Writer 

With Raiders QB Derek Carr closing in on an extension that is expected to pay him $25 million per year, it provides a ballpark of what a young up-and-coming signal-caller might expect on the open market. The Patriots' Jimmy Garoppolo, who is scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the season, likely wouldn't be able to command that much because he doesn't have the same NFL on-field track record as Carr, but a deal between Chicago's Mike Glennon ($19 million guaranteed) and Carr appears to be the ballpark in an open-market situation. Meanwhile, Carr's extension reinforces how fortunate the Patriots are to have Tom Brady under a reasonable pact: A $14 million cap charge in 2017 and then a $22 million cap charge in both 2018 and 2019.
