With three sons in the fold, Carr is feeling some type of way with his "dad strength," too. 

Not only is Deakon bringing more dad strength to Derek, it sounds like the Carr family might need a new ... car. Yeah, dad strength comes with a better appreciation of dad jokes.

Maxx Crosby gets Raiders logo tattoo after breakout 2019 rookie season

Another member of the Raiders' 2019 NFL draft class is committing himself to the team.

Defensive lineman Maxx Crosby showed off his new Raiders logo tattoo Monday, a week after running back Josh Jacobs and defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell did the same.

While Jacobs and Ferrell were first-round draft picks, Crosby was a fourth-round pick and put together an impressive rookie campaign.

In 16 games, Crosby had 47 total tackles, 10 sacks, 16 tackles for loss and 14 quarterback hits.

With Crosby, Jacobs and Ferrell, Las Vegas' newest tenant has the building blocks to be very successful over the next decade.

It's way too early to tell what the future holds for the trio, but based on the new ink, Crosby, Jacobs and Ferrell want to stay with the Raiders ... permanently.

Why Raiders' iconic logo should never be listed among worst in NFL

Why Raiders' iconic logo should never be listed among worst in NFL

How do you determine what is, and what isn’t, a good NFL logo?

NBC Sports Philadelphia devised a list of the 10 worst logos in the game with Raiders listed at the No. 7 spot.

Here’s what they said:

“They may have moved from Oakland to Las Vegas, but for some reason, stuck with this thing. It’s too busy and the colors aren’t anything special. Perhaps if the shield and “Raiders” were removed to showcase the swords and the male figure, it could simplify it. Or get rid of the head altogether. Anything is better than this.”

So, I get what they were saying, but when I think of the Raiders, I like the fact that they’re staying true to the OG logo we’re used to -- it’s iconic. People fear change. After all, they’re now called the Las Vegas Raiders.

They have one of the most unique color schemes in the game and it doesn’t seem too busy despite the detail and reminds me of how fierce the fans are. Despite a few, subtle changes over the years, the logo has stood the test of time.
