Draft Scout Richard Sherman News
10/12/14 - CB Richard Sherman spent Sunday's second half following Dallas Pro Bowl WR Dez Bryant. After starting CB Byron Maxwell went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter, Sherman moved around to avoid leaving CB Marcus Burley on Bryant. Bryant caught three passes in the second half, with Sherman covering him.
09/14/14 - CB Richard Sherman didn't get much work in the opener when the Packers' Aaron Rodgers declined to throw to his side of the field. That wasn't the case Sunday, as Sherman was hit for five receptions for 60 yards.
09/05/14 - CB Richard Sherman could be in for a quiet season. After leading the NFC with nine interceptions last year, Sherman didn't see much action in Thursday's opener. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers avoided throwing to his side, which says a lot about Sherman's reputation as a cover corner but does very little for his stat line.
09/05/14 - CB Richard Sherman did not make a tackle or appear in the stats in any manner as Aaron Rodgers did not throw the ball in his direction once the entire game.
05/07/14 - CB Richard Sherman signed a four-year, $57.4 million contract on Wednesday that makes him the NFL's highest-paid cover man.
Sherman said the deal includes $40 million in guaranteed money.

There is no other city or team that I would want to play football for."
Seahawks general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll attended Wednesday's press conference alongside Sherman.
"This is truly a great American story right here," Schneider said. "I'm personally very happy for Richard. For his family. I look forward to a bright bright future with Richard and the whole defensive backfield and the whole team."
The 6-foot-3 Sherman led the league with eight interceptions last season when the Seahawks won their first Super Bowl championship in franchise history.
"This is a great moment for the family -- for Richard, for the club and all that," Carroll said. "It's also a great statement about a young man that really demonstrated an extraordinary belief in himself and dedication. ... He's really special. He's a tremendous teammate."

"I guess this is how it feels to be a first-rounder," Sherman said. "I don't think you can ever plan this as part of any journey. ... It's one of those thing
