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 ...
Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson combined to allow 8 touchdown passes in 2013. Peterson gave up seven of those.

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.
Yu mad bro!!!! LMAO😂😂😂😂😭

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):
Can't ever be too mad lmao... pic.twitter.com/ZHA28B9Tji

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.
