Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman exchanged words on Twitter yesterday as both are not very impressed with the other’s talent and/or stats. ESPN.com has a story covering the Twitter exchange. Here is some of that piece:
Two of the NFL's best cornerbacks have taken to Twitter to air out their differences.
Darrelle Revis took to the social media network Wednesday, responding to recent trash talk from Richard Sherman, an All-Pro this past season with the Seattle Seahawks.
"I've never seen a man before run his mouth so much like a girl," the New York Jets' star wrote. "This dude just steady putting my name in his mouth to get notoriety. Sit down young pup and wait your turn."
Revis tweeted another jab, saying his business manager has more Twitter followers than Sherman.
Sherman, who started taking shots at Revis in late January, took less than 20 minutes to fire back.
"Don't need ya name ... Ur name will be irrelevant once u step back on the field bruh. Get ya picks up!" Sherman tweeted.
During Super Bowl week in New Orleans, Sherman began his feud with Revis -- widely considered the NFL's best cornerback -- when he took to Bourbon Street to ask people whether he or Revis, recovering from a torn ACL, was the best in the league.
Meanwhile, New England Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard was convicted yesterday of assaulting a police officer in 2012 while in Lincoln, Nebraska. ESPN.com has more on Dennard at http://espn.go.com/boston/nfl/story/_/id/8966440/new-england-patriots-cb-alfonzo-dennard-guilty-assaulting-officer.
Finally, Kevin Seifert of ESPN has posted a new blog on the NFC North, including notes on the Detroit Lions and their pursuit of free agent Cliff Avril. You can check it out at http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/post/_/id/53257/bbao-schwartz-rule-re-contemplated.
