Posted by maying on March 28th, 2017

With the Oakland Raiders now officially around the books to migrate to Las vegas, reaction to the move is flowing in via players past and existing.

That includes a statement in the team's starting quarterback, Derek Carr, who issued the next via Twitter:

"As I sit here and discover a vote that requires the Raiders to Vegas, I am overwhelmed with emotion, " Carr wrote. "I don't know how we should feel. I feel the pain individuals fans in Oakland. I also see the joy about the faces of our new fans in Vegas.

"As players, we will show up and present everything we have. We will compete and we will do our best to create a championship to the full Raider Nation. While I am from California and would've loved playing in Oakland the whole career, I understand the business side on the NFL. It affects us all. "

Carr, who later was echoed simply by teammate Khalil Mack, closed his statement that has a passionate plea for Raiders fans -- wherever they call home -- to be unified. And if you are a fans of Madden NFL, Buy NFL 17 Coins and download the game at your mobile.

"Oakland, our team loves an individual, and my family and I love you! WE will be resilient and we'll stay together because that is what true Raiders complete. WE are loyal, even when it's challenging. WE stick together, especially when it's tough, " Carr wrote. "So Las Vegas, you can count on us bringing some Oakland with us so you are getting a tough, loyal, and competitive fan starting and team. When the time arrives, I hope you are positioned. For now, it's about 2017 along with our diehards in Oakland. God bless & Get Raiders! "
