It may be the middle of winter but several Oakland Raiders are enjoying some time in the shade on Twitter.

It started with guard Kelechi Osemele throwing some shade on quarterback Derek Carr with a little Toy Story throwback:

I mean, youโ€™ve got to admit…. Kelechi has a point…

And running back Latavius Murray seemed to agree:

But Carr wasnโ€™t about to sit back, he had some jokes of his own:

Carr then threw up some tweets poking fun at Murray and Osemele only to take them down explaining he just wanted to make sure they understood he could play that way if they wanted him to:

But while Derek was ready to be the bigger man and walk away, Murray wasnโ€™t so ready to end the roast session:

And thatโ€™s when Derek decided the high road was no longer for him and reposted his tweets roasting both Osemele and Murray:

I still think Osemeleโ€™s original tweet comparing Carr to Sid from Toy Story won the day, but it was good to see these teammates having fun with each other during the offseason. An interaction on Twitter may not seem like a big deal but it represents the building and sustaining of good chemistry. Teammates who donโ€™t enjoy each otherโ€™s company wouldnโ€™t be cracking jokes at each otherโ€™s expense for laughs in the offseason.

Just happy they decided to have this roast session in public so Raiders fans could enjoy.
