For one of the NFL's most thrilling players, DeSean Jackson's Twitter is pretty boring. The Redskins wideout mostly uses the platform as a place to put links that lead to his far more interesting Instagram account, and a quick scroll through his timeline reveals his last regular tweet came months ago.
That all changed on Wednesday night, though, when Jackson felt threatened by some things Cardinals corner Patrick Peterson was saying online.
You smell that? That's the smell of hot, fresh beef hitting your nostrils. Smells good, don't it?
The dust-up started when Peterson, who apparently took the same How To Keep Your Name In The News By Constantly Talking About Other People seminar at LSU as Odell Beckham did, responded to a user trying to get under his skin by saying this:
i played against d jax 3 game and that his best play in 3 game against me. So good for him!!! Lol— Patrick Peterson /P2 (@P2) August 3, 2016
The play Peterson's referring to is this one from 2014, in which Jackson caught a pass and then fast forwarded past the entire state of Arizona into the endzone for six. According to the defender, that's all the wideout has done against him (that's like a pitcher claiming his outing went well besides when he gave up seven hits that one inning, but let's not get stuck on that).
Well, Jackson saw Peterson's answer, got heated and decided to end his Twitter hiatus over it. And that's when things got good:
@RealPeterson21 I ain't even Worried about u homie I don't know why u bringing me up in any conversation— Desean Jackson (@DeSeanJackson11) August 4, 2016
You know if u got something to say to me you know how to relay that message cuz— Desean Jackson (@DeSeanJackson11) August 4, 2016
Time to take out a pen and add Jackson vs. Peterson alongisde Norman vs. Beckham as must-see matchups in 2016. Luckily, the Burgundy and Gold will face the Cardinals in Week 13 this season.
At this rate, it feels like it'll only be a few weeks until Tress Way begins going after other punters for having less punts downed inside the 20 than he does.
