Derek Carr 'ready to rock' following leg surgery a year ago

Derek Carr 'ready to rock' following leg surgery a year ago

I'm ready to do absolutely everything. "But I'm focused on the guys who are here today". Hopefully that gives an idea.

And during Monday's media availability, Carr let it be known that he'd like to be paid as such prior to training camp - if possible. "The good thing is we do have time, but I'm not the type to wait until the last minute". I knew then he was one of the most physical guys I've played against in terms of running backs.

"I have to go in with the mindset that this is the group that has to win the AFC (championship)".

"It just feels weird right now", said All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack, the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Truly blessed that it wasn't worse. Still, Carr does not anticipate the Black Hole having a different feel.

Carr said he has been running, cutting and jumping on his right leg as he showed fans recently during a Modesto appearance. It's just day by day, going to work with each other and doing what it takes to win ball games.

'Pretty Little Liars' Final Season Premieres Tonight
When asked to describe the upcoming season finale in three words, the actresses offered "game-changing", "romantic" and "shocking".

Carr said there could be some minor changes to terminology - "some things that click in his brain so we can call it faster" - but most changes won't be noticeable to until they start game planning in August. "We're just going to take the leap.' And once they take a running back, it probably will close the door on Marshawn Lynch". He was asked about Marshawn Lynch, and of course expressed interest in the team bringing him on board. I think that our fans are really excited about that. "I can't say, 'Oh man, I hope he gets here and all those things.' Of course, anyone would want Marshawn Lynch, any quarterback in the National Football League". Few thought the floor would drop out from a 15-1 team that made it all the way to Super Bowl 50 and featured an MVP at quarterback, Cam Newton, as well as one of the best two or three defenders in football, Luke Kuechly.

"You have agents and those types of people to worry about for you".

Success in the NFL is fleeting, however, and the demarcation line between winning and losing is one of the more fragile things there is in an ultra-competitive league where the talent is very evenly distributed.

The increased room tax would cover about $750-million dollars of the domed venue's almost two-billion dollar cost, with the Raiders and other sources making up the difference.
