Seattle's Richard Sherman is quickly becoming an elite NFL cornerback. And he's letting everyone know it.
Sherman was one of the Seahawks' chief defensive playmakers Sunday, grabbing an interception over Deion Branch and deflecting three more passes. He was also active in the trash talk department.
The Seahawks' second-year defensive back tweeted that Tom Brady told him and Seattle safety Earl Thomas to "see him after the game when the [Patriots] win." And Sherman made sure to find Brady after the Patriots' quarterback's predictions didn't quite come true.
See Sherman's tweet and the photo — which has since been taken down — below.

Sherman also had some choice words after the Seahawks' win about the Patriots' toughness.
"We're built for a heavyweight fight," Sherman told Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times. "I don't think they're built for a heavyweight fight."
If the Patriots and Seahawks meet each other again this season, it would be in the Super Bowl. We'll see who's approaching who if that happens.
