This offseason has seen a whirlwind of quarterback movement activity. There has been big changes at the most important position on the field around the NFL for the past few years. The result has been a lack of continuity for many teams.
The shake out has been interesting. How interesting? Well, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is on pace to be the AFC’s long-running starting quarterback. Check out this information by the Associated Press:
