Fun feud or ‘a little salty’? Sherman, Cardinals’ Peterson go at it on Twitter

RENTON, Wash. --  It's only July, but the war of words have already started between Richard Sherman and a divisional rival.

This one has to do with money.

The Arizona Cardinals' Patrick Peterson just received a five-year contract extension worth $70 million, making him the highest paid cornerback in the league.

That exceeds the $56 million extension Sherman signed earlier in the offseason.

And Peterson's windfall set off an entertaining, back-and-forth on Twitter between the two players.  (Watch the video)

Peterson told that his ongoing Twitter feud with Sherman is all "just fun, healthy competition."  But Peterson added, "Sometimes it seems like he's a little salty about it."

Meanwhile, it was announced that Sherman is the No. 1 rated player in the "Madden NFL 15" video game.

One disappointing moment in Seahawks training camp Wednesday came when defensive lineman Jesse Williams was carted off the field with a leg injury. His status is unknown -- but he did miss all of last year after knee surgery.

    Sherman gave the best response when he showed a picture of “The Ring” and he also understands that where the AZ Cardinals will structure their offense around one or two guys, the Hawks don’t have a one or two man team, and he also understands that he got what he believes he is worth, and still left plenty of cap room when the Hawks sign Wilson to an extension (hopefully sooner than later) that will probably be huge (yes I know his contract dose not expire until the end of the 2015 season) but the Hawks will want to lock him up well before that.
