Richard Sherman is an NFL player currently on the Seattle Seahawks. He led the league in interceptions in 2013, helping the Seahawks lead the league in total defense.
Sherman played college football at Stanford, where he began his career as a wide receiver. He played his final two college seasons as a defensive back and was selected by Seattle in the fifth round of the 2011 draft.
Sherman was named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie Team in his first season and was an All-Pro selection in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2014, Sherman was chosen by his peers as the No. 7 player in the NFL Top 100.
In addition to his reputation as one of the game’s best players, Sherman is also known for his outspoken demeanor.
He gained national attention for calling Michael Crabtree a “sorry receiver” in a postgame interview following the 2013 NFC championship game. In a column he wrote for The MMQB, Sherman said the interview was just a small part of the person he is.
In Nov. 2014, Sherman and teammate Doug Baldwin satirized the NFL’s media policies in a two-minute press conference skit.
