Chandler Jones is calling out the Las Vegas Raiders after accusing the team of forcing him to work out at a local gym.

The veteran edge rusher took to Instagram to rip the organization, particularily head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler. He also implied he wants Patrick Graham, the Raiders' defensive coordinator, to run the team.

"Fuck it. I don't wanna play for the Raiders if that's my HC, or GM...I want Patrick Graham Ivy League n***a," Jones wrote. "They won't let me in the building tho. Tryna provoke a n***a."

From there, Jones accused the Raiders of trying to reach out to his girlfriend, whom he claims he doesn't speak to anymore. "And they had direct contact to my BM (baby mama) and we ain't been together for five years."

It seems he's not able to get in the #Raiders gym and has to go to a local gym instead and the team contacted his ex-girlfriend who hasn't been with for 5 years

Jones added, "It's a shame that I am a top athlete with 112 sacks in the NFL and I have to go to a local gym to work out during the season for no apparent reason this is wild to me Josh and you know it you need to do what's right."

Chandler's comments arrive just days after he expressed excitement over the upcoming season, writing that he "can't wait to play this year," and that he's "feelin' great in practice" in previous tweets.

Can’t wait to play this year! Feelin great in practice! 💪🏾
