HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The Las Vegas Raiders have given quarterback Derek Carr a three-year contract extension.

The extension is worth $121.5 million, a person with direct knowledge of the agreement said, speaking Wednesday on the condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced.

Despite all sorts of turmoil with the Raiders last season, including the resignation of coach Jon Gruden, Carr helped them to the playoffs as a wild card in the tough AFC West.

He threw for a career-high 4,804 yards and 23 touchdowns as Las Vegas went 10-7 before losing at Cincinnati in the postseason.
