A little levity isn't a bad thing.

It's often pointed out that players get tired of beating up on their teammates during spring and fall camps. If that's the case, it certainly hasn't hit Florida State safety Derwin James yet, who took to Instagram recently to barb teammate and fellow defensive back Trey Marshall-- check James' caption underneath the photo below.

Of course, it's all in good fun, as James' tags of "#mybrother" and "#blood" demonstrate. But it may not be much fun for opposing offenses in 2016. Both James and Marshall are lights-out hitters who play with reckless abandon-- and here's the really scary thing: they only started one game together last year for a top-ten scoring defense.

Marshall started -- and impressed -- in the first six games of the season for FSU before suffering a biceps injury against Louisville that forced him to miss the remainder of the year due to surgery. That game versus the Cardinals also happened to be the first career start for James, who wound up second on the team in tackles (91), despite starting just eight contests for the 'Noles. These exceptional athletes, along with seniors Marquez White and Nate Andrews, are positioned to lead the Seminole secondary in the 2016 campaign.
