    Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is currently hampering a broken right fibula after undergoing surgery Tuesday in Los Angeles. While he looks to find his way back onto the field for the Raiders, Carr is trying to sway a wide receiver to play at his alma mater, Fresno State University. 

    Carr spent five years as a Fresno State Bulldog. On Twitter, Carr is vying for wide receiver Jeremiah Foster, who plays for Derek's brother Darren at Bakersfield Christian High School, to be a Bulldog too. After it was reported that Sacramento State is showing interestest in Foster, Carr tweeted Foster "Needs to be a Bulldog..."

    Derek's brother David, former No. 1 draft pick out of Fresno State, certainly agrees. The elder Carr responded to Derek on Twitter with a simple message -- "Ditto."

    As a senior, the 6-foot-5 Foster hauled in 88 receptions for 1,652 yards and 20 touchdowns in 15 games played. On defense, he also took away 10 interceptions from opposing quarterbacks. 

    The Eagles made it all the way to the CIF Division 4 State Championship Game under Darren Carr before falling to Campolindo High School, 31-7.
