Derek Carr denies 'fractured relationship' with Raiders teammates

Derek Carr is setting the record straight.

The Raiders quarterback took to Twitter to refute a report that claimed he has a “fractured relationship” with his teammates as a result of lack of confidence in his leadership, further insisting that he was not “crying after being sacked and injuring his arm” Sunday against the Seahawks in London.

Carr’s tweets Tuesday came in response to an item from ProFootballTalk addressing a report by The Athletic that questioned whether Carr is still considered a leader in the Raiders locker room.

Carr’s brother, Darren, attempted to defend him on Twitter before the QB stepped in and stood up for himself.

“On the ground I yelled get me up get me. Then I got to the sideline and yelled again. Not one tear. Not one time. There is the Truth,” Carr wrote. “People will click on it because it sounds crazy. But stop playing with me.”

With Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper gone to Chicago and Dallas, respectively, there have been lingering questions about whether Carr could be next. But he insists he’s staying put.

“I’m a Raider. It’s not a ‘popular’ thing to be a Raider right now, but I am and I love it,” Carr wrote. “I love the struggle of trying to fight back for our city when not a lot of people believe in us. People can try all they want to tear us apart, but it’s not happening to the real ones.”

Carr, 27, has completed 71.7 percent of his passes for 1,783 yards and seven touchdowns with eight interceptions this season.

The Raiders (1-5) are slated to host the Colts (2-5) at 4:05 p.m. ET Sunday.
