When Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson announced he signed a $70 million deal with $48 million guaranteed, which is more than his nemesis Richard Sherman got, you knew the two would end up taking some shots on Twitter.
So Sherman, the great and loquacious Seahawks cornerback, retweeted this ...
Peterson is living it up now, with the contract to boast that he is the best cornerback in football. Even if that's faulty logic, that's a way many players measure these things. And in a great one-liner, Peterson turned Sherman's "U mad bro?' back on the Seattle cornerback.
As usual, Sherman had to have the last word (we were alerted we had the order of the tweets wrong before, this was actually Sherman responding to Peterson):
The Cardinals and Seahawks play for the first time this season on Nov. 23. We're already interested to see if there will be any postgame handshake – or punches – between the two great cornerbacks.
