Seahawks players Richard Sherman and Doug Baldwin mocked the NFL's media policies and player safety concerns in a skit during their press conference Tuesday.
Sherman stood beside the podium while Baldwin held a cardboard cutout of himself.
For roughly two minutes, Sherman and Baldwin satirized the NFL's media policies. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was fined $100,000 last week for refusing to talk to the media. Lynch did address the media after Sunday's game, but gave only one-word answers.
Sherman and Baldwin also poked fun at the NFL's emphasis on player safety.
"How do you feel about the NFL making me play two games in five days?" Baldwin asked Sherman.
"Oh my god," Sherman replied. "Jeez, I almost didn’t realize that, because they’ve been talking about player safety so much. And it’s like, two games in five days doesn’t seem like you care about player safety. It’s a little bit much for me."
Before walking off the stage, Sherman jokingly acknowledged he might be fined for the routine.
