Despite the Oakland Raiders expected relocation to Las Vegas in 2020, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr still believes he has a purpose for the city of Oakland.
When asked about what the Golden State Warriors and the Oakland Raiders mean to the city of Oakland at today’s press conference, Carr mentioned that “[God] placed us here on this team to impact [Oakland].”
With the Warriors winning two titles in the past three seasons, Carr has easily been able to see the joy that has been put on every Oakland fan’s face and the power a sports team possesses.
With that in mind, it seems Carr fully believes that he will make a similar impact to the city of Oakland, as Golden State, before the team leaves for Las Vegas by winning a Super Bowl.
Hopefully, he does, for Carr was not in good standing after his comments immediately following the approval of the Raiders’ relocation to Sin City.
