Angry Derek Carr challenges ESPN host to fight over criticism

Posted January 28, 2019

Earlier today, Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr called out Smith and First Take partner Max Kellerman on Twitter. Carr wrote, in an apparent reference to Kellerman, and perhaps co-host Stephen A. Smith, as well. Now, the Raiders might not necessarily be looking for a new quarterback, but coach Jon Gruden was at the Senior Bowl this week gushing over Kyler Murray, which led Kellerman to say some pretty harsh things about Carr.

If you're a Raiders fan and a teammate of Carr's, you're probably proud that the generally quiet face of your franchise is taking a stand for himself.

This seemed to set off the typically mild-mannered Carr, who sent out a series of tweets on Wednesday afternoon that included reaching out to UFC president Dana White, asking him to set up a "fight" between him and the television "clowns". "I think Gruden knows they got to move on and the question is can they get anything for [Carr]?"

Smith at least was quick to respond to Carr, inviting him on the show and claiming ignorance of exactly what was going on. What do I have to do with the sorry-ass season the @Raiders. With that said - isn't this reaction playing directly into the hands of First Take producers and ESPN executives? But I'll deal with this on @FirstTake. Is he a placeholder until they find the next guy?
