I think a little trash talk is healthy. Especially in sports where the whole goal is to dominate your opponent. Right now the undisputed King of Talk is Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman.
Last April, Sherman became the highest paid cornerback in the NFL after signing a 4-year, $65 million contract extension with the Seahawks. But that was short lived because within days, Cleveland Brown’s cb Joe Haden signed a 5-year, $68 million contract extension.
Until this week, when Arizona Cardinal’s Patrick Peterson announced his five-year extension worth $70 million which includes $48 million guaranteed. Patrick went on Twitter to announce his news.

Soon after his announcement, Sherman RT this:
Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson combined to allow 8 touchdown passes in 2013. Peterson gave up seven of those.

In case you forgot that Sherman believes he’s the best corner in football. Plus, Sherman and Peterson went at each other a bit last season. The next morning, Patrick had his own reply.
Yu mad bro!!!! LMAO
