Richard Sherman says he's 'done' talking about Michael Crabtree

Friday July 11th, 2014

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said on a recent appearance on NFL Network that he is "done" talking about San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.

Sherman's full quote from the interview, when asked about his rivalry with Crabtree: "I’m pretty much done talking about that. It’s getting old, it’s getting old to me. I’m tired of people asking me about it."

The cornerback also said that he isn't looking forward to playing the 49ers this season any more than any other game on Seattle's schedule.

Earlier this week, on the premiere of Discovery Channel television show American Muscle, Sherman said he wants to play Crabtree every year the rest of his career and "choke him out." Thursday, Crabtree evaded an interview question about those comments from Sherman.

The Sherman-Crabtree feud reportedly dates to a near fight at a charity event hosted by Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald last summer.

The players' testy relationship entered the public eye following last season's NFC Championship Game between the Seahawks and 49ers, when Sherman insulted Crabtree in a post-game interview right after making the victory-clinching deflection on a pass intended for the 49ers receiver.
