Las Vegas Raiders general manager Mike Mayock endorsed his quarterback on Wednesday.

"I think Derek Carr had his best year yet, under Jon Gruden. I think he's one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and we're happy with him," Mayock said, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.

It was reported earlier this offseason that the Raiders were expected to field trade calls for the signal-caller.

"I think Jon Gruden and I would stand shoulder to shoulder and pound the table for Derek Carr," Mayock added.

The support for the 28-year-old extended down from the front office as tight end Darren Waller also chimed in earlier Wednesday morning.

"I have all the belief in the world in Derek Carr. I have ever since I got here. I still do to this day. I think he's a guy that can take us everywhere we want to go," Waller said on "Good Morning Football," according to NFL.com's Nick Shook.

Carr set a new career high in passing yards (4,103) and passer rating (101.4) last season. He also threw 27 touchdowns to nine interceptions.
