Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is used to players questioning his ability and calling him out in the media. The latest player to do so is New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie

Cromartie had some harsh words for Sherman when he appeared on Sirius XM NFL Radio and was asked who he thought the best corner in the league was. Cromartie immediately said his new teammate Darrerlle Revis was, and then offered this explanation to go with his response.  

“Go play in a defense where you don’t have two All-Pro safeties. Go follow the No. 1 receiver,” Cromartie said. “Follow him around for a whole entire game and see what you can do. Darrelle Revis has done it his whole career. I’ve done it, Patrick Peterson has done it, Joe Haden has done it. He’s the only defensive back that hasn’t. There’s no point in critiquing him. If you want to label yourself as the best corner in the NFL, follow the best guy on every single team. His whole thing will be ‘we don’t have to do that, I have my trust in the other corner on the other side.’ That’s not the point. If you want to consider yourself the best, the best do what the best do and they follow around the best. And that’s what we’re all getting to.”

Sherman usually doesn’t take these types of comments laying down and it will likely just be a matter of time before Sherman offers his rebuttal to Cromartie’s remarks.
