Raiders To Re-Sign TE Derek Carrier

Derek Carrier will stay with the Silver and Black for another season. The Raiders are re-signing the veteran tight end, Ian Rapoport of tweets.

This one-year contract will put Carrier in line to play a fourth season with the team. The 2021 season will be Carrier’s 10th as a pro. He suited up with the Eagles, 49ers, Washington and the Rams prior to signing with the then-Oakland Raiders in 2018.

The 30-year-old vet has operated as a blocking tight end, for the most part, as a Raider. While playing in 16 games last season, Carrier caught one pass.

He will reprise his role alongside Darren Waller. The Raiders may have more use for Carrier next season, depending on how the rest of their offseason goes at this spot, given Jason Witten‘s retirement.
