Washington Football Team rookie Chase Young has made an enemy out of Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians. Young made an eager threat to Tom Brady ahead of their Wild Card Round game, which Arians did not like. More recently, Arians called out Young's Defenive Rookie of the Year candidacy, saying his first-year safety, Antoine WInfield Jr., was more deserving.

Washington's star edge rusher responded to Arians' comments on Twitter.

Young response has a double benefit of not only hyping up his teammate, Kamren Curl, but also taking a shot at Arians' praise for Winfield in the process.

While Washington's star rookie was mostly quiet in the team's Wild Card game against Tampa, he still turned in an excellent first campaign, racking up 7.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles in 15 games. Winfield registered 3.0 sacks and 2 forced fumbles while patrolling the Bucs' secondary, and he's coming off of forcing a fumble in the Divisional Round.

It's no surprise that Arians took his rookie's side when talking about the Defensive Rookie of the Year race, and he seems content with keeping this feud going.
