Richard Sherman: Players can't trust the NFL
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman opened up about the NFL's relationship with players, saying the league cannot be trusted in a new video for the Players Tribune.
Sherman opens by saying the league could "really care less about its players" and described the business of the NFL as a "bottom line business."
“We really don’t have reason to trust the NFL, and I don’t think they mind either way,” Sherman said. “At the end of the day, they’re going to do what they have to do to make their money and as much money as they can for the owners. And our union’s going to do what they can to protect the interests of the players and the rights of the players and help make them as much money as possible. That’s the way it’s always going to be.”

Sherman is one of the most outspoken NFL players and has openly criticized commissioner Roger Goodell for decisions in the past. He serves as a member of the NFL Players Association's executive committee and was a part of the Seahawks' union representatives.
