Derek Carr might be a hot commodity in the offseason.

The Las Vegas Raiders are expected to field trade calls from multiple teams for the quarterback, reports Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

A potential trade involving the veteran signal-caller could open the door for the Raiders to pursue Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, Bonsignore notes.

The increasing interest in Carr reportedly could also create a scenario where Watson lands in Las Vegas via a three-team trade.

Watson, who led the NFL in passing yards in 2020, reportedly has requested a trade from Houston. The three-time Pro Bowler is apparently frustrated with the Texans after being left out of the team's search for a new general manager in January.

Carr, 29, posted an 8-8 record last season while throwing for 4,103 yards and 27 touchdowns against nine interceptions. The three-time Pro Bowler has put up a passer rating north of 100 in each of the last two seasons - including a career-high 101.4 in 2020 - but hasn't posted a winning record as a starter since 2016.

Carr is set to become a free agent after the 2022 campaign.

The Raiders' depth chart at quarterback also features veteran Marcus Mariota, who signed a two-year deal with Las Vegas last March.
