Is Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman the best cornerback in the NFL?
Who cares? After Peterson edged ahead in the battle to see who would be the league’s highest-paid cornerback, the two took the argument to social media, with another of their sweet little Twitter spats breaking out.
Mr. Sherman fired the opening salvo with a stats-y retweet:
Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson combined to allow 8 touchdown passes in 2013. Peterson gave up seven of those.

Then Mr. Peterson responded:
Yu mad bro!!!! LMAO — Patrick Peterson (@RealPeterson21) July 30, 2014
To which Mr. Sherman responded with the ultimate burn that only bling can provide:
Can’t ever be too mad lmao… pic.twitter.com/ZHA28B9Tji
