Raiders GM Mike Mayock reiterated that they view Derek Carr as a franchise quarterback, despite the fact that they’re doing work on this year’s quarterback prospects. 

I’ve said before, . . . Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback, and we believe that,” Mayock said, via Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle. “Beyond that, just like at any other position, we’re going to do our due diligence. If we found somebody we liked better, or thought had a bigger upside, you’ve got to do the right thing for the organization.

“But we love Derek. We love what he brings to the table. But like every other position, we’re going to do all of our due diligence. And I happen to work with a head coach that absolutely loves the position. And we’re always going to know about those guys.”
