Derek Carr rips First Take hosts in Twitter rant, challenges them to fight


Derek Carr has been busy on Twitter the last few days, and he turned his attention to the hosts of ESPN's First Take on Wednesday afternoon.

We'll let Carr's tweets speak for themselves. Here are a series of tweets directed at hosts Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman:

Yes, that is Carr tweeting at UFC owner Dana White asking him to set up a fight in an octagon.

Where did this outburst come from? It stems from Kellerman's comments regarding Jon Gruden's praise of NFL draft prospect Kyler Murray.

Kellerman had this to say when addressing what Gruden said:

"You can see where quarterbacks don't want it, and Carr didn't want it. And I think Gruden knows they have to move on. The question is, can they get anything for him? Is he a placeholder until they find the next guy? How long will it take to develop the next guy? And Kyler Murray, if you can grab him in the draft, hell yeah."

So you can see why Carr is so angry. Kellerman is questioning Carr's desire.

This isn't the first time Kellerman has taken a shot at Carr. Back in October, after a report surfaced that Carr had lost the support of his teammates because of how he reacts to injuries, Kellerman said he had lost confidence in Carr.

"Under pressure, he doesn't perform well," Kellerman said.

Anyway, we'd pay good money to see Carr get into the octagon with Kellerman. Let's hope White can set that up.
