Raiders' Marcus Mariota: Expecting backup role
Mariota said Tuesday that he's ready to serve as Derek Carr's backup with the Raiders, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports. "First and foremost, this is Derek's team, and I understand that," Mariota said.
Mariota was awarded a two-year, $17.6 million contract with $7.5 million guaranteed last week, sparking rumors of a job battle between Carr and Mariota. The former Titan was quick to shoot down those rumors, but there's no way to spin it as a positive for Carr when his team brings in the highest-paid backup in the league. Carr may still have security for the Week 1 starting job, but he'll be looking over his shoulder if he struggles early in the season.
