Last Thursday, Derek Carr signed a five-year, $125 million contract with the Oakland Raiders that set the record for highest annual pay in the NFL. When asked about his first purchase during his press conference to announce the signing, Carr said he had a treat in mind.
Obviously no contracts can be signed until July 1, and technically there is to be no discussion of contract terms, but the window is open for discussions to begin. T.J.

Shattenkirk is probably the top free agent available on the market and headlines a weak group of defensemen.
Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya will be reunited in immortality.
