It has often been said that Derek Carr is one of the most, if not the most, polarizing player ever to play for the Raiders.

Everyone seems to have a strong opinion about the skills and future of the Las Vegas Raiders’ eighth-year quarterback, whether it is positive or negative.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Carr is one of the most trolled players in the NFL. According to a study by the Action Network, Carr is the seventh most trolled player in the NFL on social media.

While dealing with trolls is definitely annoying, Carr should take comfort in knowing he is in good company. The most trolled player in the league is none other than Tom Brady. You know, (arguably) the greatest player ever to step on a football field ...

Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the second-most trolled NFL player. So clearly Carr is in good company indeed.
