Richard Sherman takes jab at Patrick Peterson after Peterson’s extension

Patrick PetersonPatrick Peterson announced on Tuesday night that he has signed a five-year, $70 million contract extension with the Arizona Cardinals. This next piece of information may shock you — Richard Sherman did not congratulate him.

Peterson’s deal, which he says includes $48 million guaranteed, is one year longer than the four-year, $56 million extension Sherman signed and includes $8 million more in guaranteed money at the same average annual value. After Peterson’s deal was announced, Sherman had a pretty timely retweet.

Peterson then tweeted something that was clearly directed toward Sherman, and Sherman responded the only way he knows how.

We’re not surprised Sherman threw shade at Peterson, as Peterson tried to increase his leverage with the Cardinals by saying he is a better cornerback than Sherman and criticizing Sherman’s game. In reality, both are tremendous players who deserve to be paid at or near the top of their position. Just don’t expect either to admit that about his counterpart.
