Patrick Peterson is one happy guy. He took to Twitter to announce his new five-year/$70 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday night, and then followed it up Wednesday morning with a message to his pal, Richard Sherman. Why? Because his new contract is worth more guaranteed money ($48 million in total).
The tweet didn’t have Sherman’s handle in it, but everyone knew it was addressed to the Seattle Seahawks‘ CB because he had retweeted a stat that made him look better than Peterson on Tuesday night:
Yu mad bro!!!! LMAO

Naturally, Sherman had to respond:
Can’t ever be too mad lmao… pic.twitter.com/ZHA28B9Tji

It’s hard to argue with the championship gold. You could call it the ultimate trump card. As for who’s the better cornerback? Most people will give the slight edge to Sherman.
