Sports Illustrated NFL reporter Jim Trotter tweeted that he asked three personnel people to name him the top two cornerbacks in the league. None mentioned Sherman. Trotter says the players mentioned were Patrick Peterson, Darrelle Revis and Aqib Talib.
You know how Sherman is when it comes to slights and trash talk, so he wasn’t about to let that slip by. He responded to Trotter via Twitter with a classic Sherman answer:
@SI_JimTrotter sounds like the same people who passed on me in the draft ;) won't be employed long

That guy is always on point with his trash talk.
Sherman has 22 tackles in six games, three interceptions including one returned for a touchdown and seven passes defended. He’s been great this season and would have been one of the players I mentioned had I been asked that question.
