Derek Carr and Jon Gruden are about to be part the NFL's newest buddy sitcom. 

According to The Athletic's Vic Tafur, Carr confirmed Thursday he purchased a home in Las Vegas in preparation for the Oakland Raiders' move to Sin City in 2020. Gruden will be one of his neighbors.

Carr and Gruden didn't always see eye to eye in Gruden's first year back on the sideline, with television cameras catching the occasional disagreement between the two during games. That obviously didn't dissuade Carr from guaranteeing he'll see even more of his head coach off the field.

It could make things even more awkward if the Raiders make a quarterback change in the next few years. Gruden downplayed rumors regarding Carr's long-term future with the team in April, reaffirming his commitment to the incumbent starter.

Carr should probably start to grow concerned, though, if he starts seeing Nathan Peterman show up around the neighborhood.
