The Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman made his case to be called the best cornerback in the NFL as he helped his team win Super Bowl XLVIII. However, some people still think it's a topic worth debating.
When asked about the top cornerbacks in the NFL, most people would mention Sherman and Darrelle Revis. As ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday, Revis just agreed to a one-year, $12 million deal with the New England Patriots.
Running back LeGarrette Blount put up good numbers with the Patriots last season, so it would have been easy for him to argue for Revis to be called the best corner in the game. However, the free agent decided to go another route by making a bold statement about former teammate Aqib Talib:
CONGRATS TO MY BROTHER LIB! YOU DESERVE IT BIG BRO! THE BEST CORNER IN THE LEAGUE AND ITS TIME YOU GOT PAID LIKE IT!! pic.twitter.com/cem22QtKJ2— LeGarrette Blount (@LG_Blount) March 12, 2014
It looks like that tweet led to a Twitter debate between Blount and Sherman:
@LG_Blount it's all good.... Hard to argue with friendship— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 12, 2014
@LG_Blount I've seen it .... And done it ....— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 12, 2014
@LG_Blount I just totally lock down one! And pick off passes that come over there.... Rarely ever giving up completions....no need to follow— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 13, 2014
@LG_Blount did that help y'all win the bowl or nah?— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 13, 2014
Both made valid points, but Sherman's ring was able to get the last word.
