Derek Carr still does not have new contract. He is entering the final year of his current contract.
While speaking at the NFL owner’s meeting in Palm Beach, Florida, Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels was asked about Carr’s contract talks. His answer made it appear that both sides still have things to work out, they’re trying to find the ‘Sweet Spot’
McDaniels said the team has to do what’s best for the Raiders and Carr and has to do what’s best for him.
Josh McDaniels said #Raiders are "trying to build around" Derek Carr. As far as extension talks …
"Derek’s going to have to make decisions about what’s best for him & we have to try to do what’s right for the team. There will be a sweet spot in there hopefully for everybody."

Later on Monday morning, Carr’s agent. Tim Younger, tweeted about McDaniels comments.
Clubs always do “what is best for the team” in every situation. Players (even QBs) don’t expect teams to do “what is best for the player.” Successful negotiations always end in a “sweet spot.” That said, our practice is not to comment publicly regarding ongoing negotiations.

The Raiders have shelled out big money this offseason for Davante Adams, and pass rushers Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones. Of course you can’t pay everyone.
But based off Carr’s agent’s comment, he’d prefer all the talk about contracts to remain private. Both sides have plenty of time to get this figured out.
