That escalated quickly. Seemingly

    out of nowhere Gabe Jackson Jersey , Raiders QB Derek Carr tweetd at UFC and Dana White about fighting a couple TV personalities. Something seemingly quite out of character for the usual “Golly gee, you know me” quarterback.So, what happened to make Carr go off the rails in fury and talking about wanting to fight TV personalities with whom he claims he pays no mind?This is what happened: Jon Gruden was asked at the Senior Bowl whether he thinks Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray’s height is an issue to which Gruden had this to say:“I used to think that a lot until I saw Drew Brees twice a year in Tampa. And then I met Russell Wilson coming out of NC State. And now I’m watching this kid Murray at Oklahoma and I am putting away all the prototypes that I once had. I used to have a prototype for hand size, height, arm length, all that stuff. We’re looking for guys that can play and do a lot of different things and they come in all shapes and sizes nowadays.”Seemed like a pretty generic response that was simply praising fine play by shorter quarterbacks, much like Gruden was known for doing (and often criticized for) during his years on his QB camp show. But Max Kellerman chose to read into that as saying Gruden was going to move on from Carr, in part because Carr “didn’t want it.”That’s what prompted Derek Carr’s response. He wasn’t done though.Carr went on to say that Kellerman and co-host Stephen A Smith are just mad because he blocked them on twitter “for talking trash about our team,” adding that he “Would love to actually sit and break down film with these two on tv just to show their viewers how incompetent (lacking qualification) they are about our game.”Stephen A Smith responded accepting Carr’s challenge. The one about coming on the show Donald Penn Jersey , not the one about the fight in the octagon.They say any publicity is good publicity. I’m sure the First Take guys are loving the publicity they are getting from being able to get under Derek Carr’s skin. And I’m sure a lot of Raiders fans love Carr’s response. I don’t think it’s a good look for Derek. He is supposed to be above this kind of nonsense. Getting so mad you make several threatening tweets at TV hot take artists only makes people wonder if they struck a nerve. But at least it’s the offseason. Let’s just hope we’re not still talking about this in August.Follow @LeviDamien It’s customary during training camp for NFL teams to hook up with another franchise for joint practices.After several days of beating up on teammates it’s good to bring in some fresh meat to let..." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesSilver And Black Pride homepageHorizontal - WhiteSilver And Black Pridean Oakland Raiders communityFollow Silver And Black Pride online:Follow Silver And Black Pride on TwitterFollow Silver And Black Pride on FacebookLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchSilver And Black Pride main menuFanpostsFanshotsRaidersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Raiders StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Raiders NewsYahoo Raiders Team PageYahoo Raiders ReportYahoo Raiders Depth ChartYahoo Raiders TransactionsYahoo Raiders PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Raiders and Rams in 'final stages' of working out joint practicesNew,5commentsPDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:Raiders and Rams in 'final stages' of working out joint practicesTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailIt’s customary during training camp for NFL teams to hook up with another franchise for joint practices.After several days of beating up on teammates it’s good to bring in some fresh meat to let loose on.Last season the Raiders welcomed the Detroit Lions to Napa where the two teams practiced together for multiple days leading up to their preseason match up.According to Jon Gruden, this year it could be his good friend and protege, Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams.“Yeah, I talked to Sean McVay at 4 o’clock in the morning. Sean and I talk a lot, at about 4:00 am” said Gruden. “We are considering working against the Rams prior to the first preseason game.Nothing is 100 percent finalized yet, but if possible that certainly I think, might benefit the both of us.We are in the final stages trying to work something out.”This will be the second year in a row that the Raiders will meet the Rams in the preseason.Who could forget last years snooze fest in week two of the preseason.Although it was the second preseason game both teams sat starters due to the fact that they would see each other just four weeks later in the season opener.
