Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said Tuesday he will wear an armband as a tribute to the late Kobe Bryant.
“Watched every game he played,” Carr said on a Zoom call with reporters. “He meant so much to me. When he followed me on Twitter, it was one of the best days of my life. Then I got to know him.”
Bryant, a former Los Angeles Lakers star who died in a helicopter crash in January, would often wear a long sleeve on his right arm. The Raiders tweeted a photo of Carr wearing one on his left arm.
