Derek Carr challenges 'First Take' hosts to UFC fight after criticism

Carr wrote, in an apparent reference to Kellerman, and perhaps co-host Stephen A. Smith, as well.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr uncharacteristically ripped "First Take" hosts Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith in a series of tweets on Wednesday and challenged them to a fight. It does not take a genius to see that the quarterback position is thin in the National Football League, and while young, college quarterbacks look like a sexy pick heading into the draft, the Raiders have a proven leader in Carr.

Apparently, Carr wasn't too happy about being called a quitter, because he sent out a very interesting tweet to UFC president Dana White.

Family booted out of plane flight for allegedly smelling bad
Adler believes there was a different reason as to why he and his family got kicked off the plane, although he did not elaborate. An American Airlines jet is seen in the air preparing to land at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport in Rosemont, Illinois.

Smith and Kellerman have been critical of the three-time Pro-Bowl selection on their show, and it appears it has struck a nerve with Carr.

"Here's the question: why is he talking about getting ME in the octagon instead of a UFC fighter, @danawhite", Smith wrote on Twitter. What do I have to do with the sorry-ass season the @Raiders. As it stands, Carr is the slight favorite to take down Smith, but it's closer than one would expect. All I did was observe.

Carr's comments came after the First Take crew discussed the Raiders' quarterback situation on Wednesday morning.
