Former Raiders quarterback Derek Carr’s agent says he will ‘never’ speak to the media again
A former Raiders quarterback has reportedly said he will “never” speak to media again, after the team fired him after he was arrested in the Las Vegas shooting.
Carr, who led the team to two Super Bowl titles, had been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, domestic violence, and assault.
His agent, Marc Caputo, told the Las Angeles Times the former Raiders star would “never be the same”.
“I have nothing more to say to the world,” Caputo said.
“I’m not here to make any excuses for Derek Carr.”
Carr’s agent, who also represents Peyton Manning, Brett Favre and Joe Montana, did not respond to a request for comment.
Earlier this month, Carr was arrested on a DUI charge in Las Vegas.
A source told the Los Angeles Times that Carr had been at the Las-Vegas Hilton hotel with another man, who was subsequently arrested and charged with possession of a firearm.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal first reported Carr was on the Las Vegas Strip and had a gun.
The Raiders, which have just finished their bye week, will travel to Arizona on Sunday for their final game.
