Patrick Peterson and Richard Sherman are back at it.

Earlier this offseason, a feud started between the two cornerbacks after Sherman received a four-year, $57.4 million contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks. Things had been quiet for a while, but after Peterson signed a huge contract extension with the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday night that made him the league's highest-paid cornerback, the rivalry was sparked once again.

Peterson announced the deal on Twitter:

Remembering comments from earlier in the offseason, Sherman responded to Peterson's new deal:

Of course, Peterson wasn't going to let that go without a response:

That led to this response by Sherman:

Patrick Peterson addressed the Twitter feud during his extension press conference. Here's what Peterson had to say about his back-and-forth feud with Richard Sherman, via AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban:

I don’t how he feels about it, but I think it’s fun, healthy competition. I’m having fun with it, sometimes it seems like he’s a little salty with it. I don’t have any problems with Richard. I don’t have any beef with him. I am having fun. I don’t know if he’s having fun. We have had our exchanges over the last month or so and obviously he is still exchanging words this morning, but it is what it is. I have no ill feelings toward Richard. I wish him the best of luck throughout his career and season and I guess it’ll be must-watch TV when we play Seattle.

--End of Update--

Peterson may have gotten more money, but Sherman has the ring.
