Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman ripped commissioner Roger Goodell and his proposed personal foul rule in an interview with ESPN on Sunday.

At a press conference in February, Goodell mentioned a potential new rule that would eject players after committing a second personal foul penalty in a game.

“I think it’s foolish,” Sherman said. “But it sounds like something somebody who’s never played the game would say, something that they would suggest, because he doesn’t understand. He’s just a face. He’s just a suit. He’s never stepped foot on the field and understood how you can get a personal foul.”

Sherman was elected to the NFLPA executive committee this year. He is sntering the third year of a four-year, $56 million deal he signed before the 2015 season.
