Richard Sherman has secret room for opponents' jerseys

Tuesday January 13th, 2015

The MMQB's Robert Klemko sat down with Richard Sherman to watch the Cowboys-Packers game on Sunday as the Seahawks corner scouted out potential matchups for the NFC Championship.

And what does a multimillionaire athlete eat in a food-rich region like Seattle while watching football? Well, Sherman opts for Domino's Pizza.

The Pro Bowl defender lives a 40-minute drive from the heart of Seattle, but even a cursory Google search for pizza near his home turns up plenty of other options.

Among the other quirks revealed by the profile is the hidden room in Sherman's home filled with opponents' jerseys.

The foyer stairs lead to a bookshelf, which Sherman pushes back to reveal another staircase that leads to a hidden room featuring more jerseys: Andre Johnson’s, Larry Fitzgerald’s and Tony Gonzalez’s. He’s got about a dozen more still in need of framing, including LeSean McCoy’s, DeSean Jackson’s and Patrick Peterson’s.

“I ask to trade jerseys with a guy if I really respect his game,” he says.

The article contains lots of interesting information about Sherman, but the spotlight definitely belongs to his father, Kevin, who still drives a garbage truck in Los Angeles, despite his son's success.
