It’s not exactly breaking news to say that Richard Sherman believes he is the best cornerback in football. He’s made that much clear over the past couple of years, from posting “U Mad Bro?” memes after beating Tom Brady to blowing up in Erin Andrews’ face on live TV after advancing to the Super Bowl. The guy thinks he’s tops. While the Seahawks‘ Sherman is no doubt a very good cornerback, and while the case could be made that he’s the best, still not everyone agrees.
One such dissenter is LeGarrette Blount. The free agent running back has spent most of his career with Aqib Talib as a teammate, including two years in Tampa Bay and this past season in New England. Blount has gained an appreciation of Talib’s play at cornerback, which prompted him to tweet some well wishes to his friend for signing a big-money deal in Denver this week.
“CONGRATS TO MY BROTHER LIB!” Blount tweeted on his official account, @LG_Blount. “YOU DESERVE IT BIG BRO! THE BEST CORNER IN THE LEAGUE AND ITS TIME YOU GOT PAID LIKE IT!!
