Former NFL cornerback Brendan Langley has found himself in hot water after getting into a physical altercation with a United Airlines employee at an airport.

In bizarre footage circulating online, the man identified as former Denver Broncos cornerback Langley appears to square up with the employee.

The pair appear to trade slaps, before Langley asks "You saw that s**t?" to someone watching.

Langley then delivers a right hand that sends the employee sprawling.

The employee works his way back to his feet and again squares up to Langley.

"You want some more?" Langley can be heard yelling.

A spectator could be heard yelling "stop" throughout the ordeal.

However, as the pair trade words another man appears to intervene and stop the altercation.

The video has been viewed more than 14 million times on Twitter.

Footage circulating doesn't appear to show clearly who threw the first hit and there is no clarification over what sparked the heated brawl.

However, reports suggest the brawl started over Langley's use of a wheelchair to carry his luggage.

Langley currently plays for the Calgary Stampeders in Canada.

However, he only featured in 16 games and mostly for the special team.
