After signing the biggest contract extension in NFL history this week, it looks like Derek Carr has already decided how he's going to spend his first pay check, and no, he's not going to buy a new car, or a new boat or a trip to Barbados. Instead, the Raiders quarterback just wants to use a few [...]

It might have taken a giant leap of faith to predict Erron Kinney would carve out a nice career in the National Football League.

Woody Johnson’s special relationship with U.S. President Donald Trump might earn him a cushy new job. Trump has asked the the New York Jets owner to serve as the United States’ ambassador to the United Kingdom, the White House announced Thursday, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini. If Trump officially nominates Johnson, and the U.S. senate confirms him, the Jets supremo will accept the job, move to the U.K. for three years and hand responsibility for running the Jets to his younger brother, Christopher Johnson. “The New York Jets have been an integral part of our family since 2000, but this is a unique opportunity for Woody. His patriotism and commitment to our country have always been a passion of his,” Christopher Johnson said in a statement, per ESPN. “Over the years, we have learned that ownership of the New York Jets is a special responsibility. Personally, if Woody is nominated and confirmed, I would be honored to oversee the organization, continuing to build a team on and off the field that our fans are proud of and deserve.” Woody Johnson was a major contributor to Trump’s election campaign, and many have expected his nomination for for the U.K. ambassadorship since January.

Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley headed to Road Atlanta on Thursday to get his first taste of the Verizon IndyCar Series. But while there, he also put on a show for Will Power. Hundley is taking part in a weekend-long VIP experience leading up to Sunday’s Kohler Grand Prix, and he ended the first day of activities by showing Power how to throw a football through the window of a moving Chevrolet Corvette pace car. The 24-year-old QB started Thursday by getting a tour of the Team Penske garage from Power, before taking a ridealong with racing legend Mario Andretti around the high-speed circuit. Not only did Hundley get the pass through the Corvette’s window, which isn’t very large, he did it without hitting the driver, Bill Swoboda, in the head. "I know I’d probably end up in the fence. I’ll just stick to football.” – @packers QB @BrettHundley17 #KohlerGP #INDYCAR pic.twitter.com/dy1prTAwBx — IndyCar Series (@IndyCar) June 23, 2017 “I was a pace car receiver, trying to catch the ball, and we did it,” Swoboda told IndyCar. “I knew I was going to get pegged off but as it turned out, the way the ball landed, it hit the left side of the seat, bounced and landed right on the seat. Never even touched me. I love him! He’s awesome!” In addition to giving Power a demonstration of what he does for a living, Hundley also introduced him to the Packers’ tradition of riding young fans’ bicycles.

If only the Atlanta Falcons had kept giving Devonta Freeman the (darn) ball. The Falcons running back said Wednesday on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he believes he would have been the Super Bowl LI MVP if his team didn’t take him out of the game in the fourth quarter. Freeman finished the game with 75 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries and two receptions for 46 yards, but just five of those carries (for 4 yards) came in the second half or overtime. “I hate to go there, but I was supposed to be the MVP this year of the Super Bowl …,” Freeman said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s JuliaKate E. Culpepper. Show hosts Brady Quinn and Bruce Murray then brought up Matt Ryan, the Falcons quarterback and 2016 NFL MVP who threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns in the Super Bowl. Freeman contends he was having a better game than Ryan. “I don’t want to make this no competition thing with me and my quarterback,” Freeman said. “I’m just talking about from based off that game. Let’s (say) it like this: If I would have kept getting the ball, if I would have stayed in the game, I don’t know why I got out of the game actually. “But if I would have stayed in the game, I would have got MVP. I’m looking at my stats, and I see my numbers didn’t lie. Look at my numbers.” New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady ultimately won the Super Bowl MVP, having engineered the largest comeback in Super Bowl history (25 points) in his team’s 34-28 win.

Derek Carr promised Oakland Raiders fans Wednesday that he’d let them know when he really finalized a contract extension. The next day, he proved he’s a man of his word. Carr tweeted confirmation of the deal Thursday morning, just as NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport delivered the reported financials. Now it's done ! From the jump I've wanted to be a Raider 4 life. One step closer to that! Blessed!!! Business done! Let's just play now!!! — Derek Carr (@derekcarrqb) June 22, 2017 The #Raiders and QB Derek Carr have finalized a 5-year monster extension worth $125M, sources say. Highest paid player in history — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 22, 2017 That’s quite a haul for Carr, who was earning just under $1 million under the terms of his rookie contract. Once he established himself as a franchise quarterback, though, a pay raise was warranted. Carr has started 47 games in three seasons for the Raiders, throwing for 11,194 yards and 81 touchdowns with 31 interceptions, and the team reached the AFC divisional playoff round last season. So while Oakland fans are losing their team to Las Vegas, they aren’t losing their quarterback to free agency. UPDATE (12:27 p.m.): Rapoport cited sources familiar with deal in pointing out Carr will receive $40 million fully guaranteed. Still, that’s enough money for Carr’s older brother, David, to file a request. 5yrs 125million …. @derekcarrqb You got lunch. — David Carr (@DCarr8) June 22, 2017 David Carr, of course, was the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Houston Texans in 2002 and signed a seven-year, $46.2 million contract back then. So both Carr brothers certainly can afford a nice meal. Thumbnail photo via Larry McCormack/The Tennessean via USA TODAY NETWORKFiled under: NFL, Oakland Raiders, Top Stories [...]
