Raiders players turn on Jon Gruden over broken vows

Glazer’s Week 7 Mailbag Will Jon Gruden trade Derek Carr and start from scratch Glazer’s Week 7 Mailbag Will Jon Gruden trade Derek Carr and start from scratch

This week began with the Oakland Raiders shipping two-time Pro Bowl receiver Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys for a first-round pick.

Another player questioned whether a rebuild for the Raiders wasn't always the long-term plan for Gruden, who signed a 10-year, $100 million deal to return as Oakland's coach earlier this year.

The Athletic, citing multiple sources, reported that teammates' confidence in Carr "has waned", in part, because of film that appeared to show the quarterback crying after taking a hit in Oakland's loss to Seattle in Week 6.

"The Mack trade was a real stiff jab", one player anonymously told the Athletic. "But the Cooper one was like a knockout punch, especially because we had just walked back in the door from the bye [week]".

"I don't see us making any more trades", he said. So any assertion Gruden makes about trades has to be taken with a grain of salt, but he made one to reporters on Wednesday anyway. "Despite everything the coaches told us at training camp".

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr reiterated his desire to win with his current club Tuesday, after shooting down reports he's lost his teammates.

"Nobody was happy when we traded Khalil". Smith said that approach could be a "learning opportunity" for the team. And nobody is happy that we traded Amari.

"To ever insinuate there's an issue inside this locker room with our leader and our captain is the biggest joke I've ever seen, and I've been around this league my whole life", Smith said. The Athletic's John Middlekauff was reporting that Gruden was listening to offers on Mack long before anyone was interested in listening and he seems to be saying the same is happening with Carr. It's no secret that he got a 10-year contract.

The thing is, just because Gruden said a Carr trade isn't going to happen doesn't mean it's not going to happen and Cooper is proof of that. They are now loaded with five first-round draft picks over the next two years - but it's cost them this season. "Our job is to play football".
