Derek Carr pulled off his first victory as an NFL quarterback last night, and his teammates were excited. James Jones, who scored the game winning touchdown was on NFL AM this morning and talked up his rookie quarterback by saying he is mature.
“Carr’s an unbelievable leader,” the receiver said. “He’s one of those young guys that acts like he’s 30 already. He has a great feel for the team, great feel for the game. He’s gonna be a special player.”
Jones went on to talk about his first meetings with Carr, and called him Mini Aaron Rodgers.
“When I was in Green Bay, and he was at Fresno State, my receivers coach, Keith Williams, used to coach at Fresno State, so I always used to go there to train,” Jones explained. “And I used to catch balls from Derek, and worked out with Derek, and I started calling him ‘Baby Aa-Rod’ at Fresno State. This kid has all the potential in the world to be a special player, so I’m glad we finally got him on the winning side last night.”
