Derek Carr Net Worth as of 2017: $146.7 Million
Derek Carr has proven he can play the position and is net worth showed as he was worth $23.5 million. That was from his current contract and personal investments until as of this morning. The Oakland Raiders released breaking news saying that they have agreed to a $125 million extension with Carr that will span the next few years.
With the last year of his four year contract taken off the books due to this new deal, his new net worth is astounding 146.7 million. We’ll show you how he got to this point.
Carr’s first two seasons in the league showed promise as he accumulated 21 tds and 3,270 yds his first season and then 32 tds and 3,987 yds his second year. By just looking at those stats you would think the kid was flawless and was considered a top tier qb. The one blimp on his game however, was that he had a tendency for turning the ball over. Carr committed 35 turnovers over his first two seasons and was determined to flip the script; only his play but also the direction of the team.
Carr’s third season in the league was his most impressive up to this point. He threw for 28 touchdowns, 3,937 yards and a passer rating of 96.7. However, maybe the most impressive statistic was limiting his turnovers. He only committed 8 turnovers this past season and led his team to the second best record in the AFC.
He finally got bad news when he suffered a broken fibula in week 16 against the Colts and was ruled out for the rest of the season. He has been rehabbing feverishly since and is motivated to get his shot at bringing this team back to the Superbowl after years of embarrassment.
With this new deal, Carr won’t have to worry in the slightest about expenses and can shift all his focus to the upcoming season.
