Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback James Pierre and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson are rivals on the field. But off the field, they remain family as they are first cousins.

Pierre spoke to the media after practice on Tuesday and when asked if he was faster than Jackson, he said that he was and said if you ask Jackson, he will admit it.

Pierre is looking to crack the starting lineup at cornerback for Pittsburgh this year. The departure of Mike Hilton and Seven Nelson leaves two spots up for grabs and after a strong finish to 2020, Pierre is putting together an excellent camp and preseason. His speed would be welcome on an already elite defense.
