Derek Carr benched by Raiders; could he reunite with Dennis Allen in New Orleans?

Carr was drafted by the Raiders in 2014 — Dennis Allen’s abridged final year with the team, at No. 36 overall out of Fresno State.

The Raiders will be left with about $5.6 million in dead money should they move on from Carr before Feb. 15, saving more than $29.2 million against the salary cap.

Carr may have a 63-79 record in the NFL, but he’s completed 64.6% of his attempts while throwing 217 touchdown passes against 99 interceptions in his Raiders career.
