Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman trade Twitter barbs

We all know Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has a gift for getting under the skin of his opponents. He's done it again, though this time he's drawn the attention of a high-profile star he's never actually shared the field with.

(This is tremendously impressive.)

For your entertainment and pleasure, we present to you: Darrelle Revis vs. Richard Sherman.

"I never seen a man before run his mouth so much like girl. This dude just steady putting my name in his mouth to get notoriety @rsherman_25" - Darrelle Revis (@Revis24)

Note: We're not sure what caused the Mt. Revis sector of Revis Island to erupt, but we assume it could've been a Bleacher Report video of Sherman running around Bourbon Street during Super Bowl week asking drunk people if he was better than Revis. NFL Network aired a clip of the segment during Sherman's visit to our Los Angeles studio on Friday.

"My boy @JohnGeiger_ got more followers then @rsherman_25. Sit down young pup & wait your turn." - Revis

Note: Geiger is Revis' business manager. Ironically, Sherman's follower count will undoubtedly surge past Geiger's on the strength of Revis' tweets.

"@rsherman_25 I ain't your competition bro, @roddywhiteTV is!!!" - Revis

Note: Sherman told ESPN (and Around The League) last week he didn't believe White was a top-end wideout. The same White who ran past Sherman for a touchdown in the playoffs last month.

There was a 0.000000000002 percent chance Sherman would ignore Revis' tweets. The odds won.

"Got off my flight to this hilarious convo. So I have 8 picks 3 ff and a sack. My season stats looking like Revis career stats" - Richard Sherman (RSherman_25)

"For the QB not throwing his way argument. In his 2nd year they were throwing his way. I still doubled his picks" - Sherman

Note:Then ...

"Look I just helped you get 6,000 followers homie!!! @rsherman_25" - Revis

This is the offseason.
