Richard Sherman has hit out at Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback, Darrelle Revis on twitter. Revis is reportedly refusing to take a pay cut from the Buccaneers and is a potential trade candidate on the second day of free agency.

Sherman responded to a tweet from NFL reporter, Albert Breer claiming that: "Darrelle Revis is still the best CB in football. And unless he's changed philosophically, he'll want to be paid like it.."

The Seahawks man hit back saying: "I'm trying to figure out what y'all looking at...." along with a graph that showed Sherman had more interceptions than Revis, and all other cornerbacks over the past three years.

Sherman wasn't finished however, tweeting today: "Starting to understand's about hype more than performance lol.... Good to know...Just have to laugh at it.....ignorance is truly bliss ...."

Former Stanford player, Sherman claimed that he was the best cornerback in the league in an emotional tirade after the NFC Championship game and it appears that the facts back that up with 20 interceptions in his first three years as an NFL player.

Sherman also helped his Seattle Seahawks team win the Super Bowl last season, something which Revis is yet to accomplish in his seven year NFL career.
