Tennessee Titans safety Kevin Byard was one of two safeties (along with Minnesota's Harrison Smith) named to the NFL's first-team All-Pro roster this past season. The 24-year-old Byard had eight interceptions in a career season with the Titans.

That does not, however, mean he's already a household name, as Hall of Fame corner Deion Sanders illustrated on Tuesday night. It started with a quote from Sanders about Tyrann Mathieu, who recently signed with the Texans, being the best safety in the NFL.

.@DeionSanders is a big fan of the @HoustonTexans' latest DB addition 👀

Byard took offense to it and called Sanders out.

How do you make this statement and not include the two first team AP All Pro safeties?? 🤔 @DeionSanders #INeedAnswers https://t.co/HzRaV3h85g

Sanders' response was...cringeworthy. Clearly unaware of Byard's identity, Sanders called him a "fan."

You're looking at who writers tell u who's the best I know who players and former players feel is the best. I rest my case. You continue to be a fan and i will continue being the man. #Truth https://t.co/gnpwJHjxEK

Byard clapped back with a reasonable response.

But the numbers nor film add up. How do you overlook guys like Harrison Smith, Earl Thomas, and Eric Berry as not being the best in the game? I never said I was the best but I’m on my way. You continue to be a fan and I will continue going to the pro bowl and being great #Truth https://t.co/s099lNjiq2

It appears he's using the awkward exchange as motivation.

And if you didn’t know, I am a CURRENT player who watches a ton of film so trust me, I know who’s balling and who is not. Talking about be a fan 😂 https://t.co/s099lNjiq2

The Jags' Jalen Ramsey, one of the NFL's other great young defensive backs, had Byard's back.

Man bump that! Talk that talk KB! You know you a beast, a whole lot of others know it too Trust me! You supposed to believe you the best! & You got the film to back it up! Everybody got opinions but just keep giving facts bro! https://t.co/dIegdgAnWi
