"Sorry for being emotional. I'm just pissed off about some of the things that a lot of us try to do just to practice. What we put our bodies through just to sleep at night," Carr said in his press conference, fighting back tears. "And for that to be the result of all that effort pisses me off - pisses a lot of guys off. It's hard knowing what some guys are doing - like I said - just to practice, what they're putting in their body just to sleep at night. Like just so we can be there for each other." He added, "And I wish everybody in that room felt the same way about this place. And as a leader that pisses me off, if I'm being honest."

"Wipe your tears with your guaranteed millions of dollars because your life is so hard," one user wrote. "I’m a Raider fan and I’ve wanted Carr gone for years. If I’m his teammate and seeing him cry after a regular season game I know he ain’t built for this. He’s confidence is clearly gone," one user wrote, while another said, "Such a drama queen jeez".
