Report: Seahawks' Richard Sherman finishes elbow treatment


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Seahawks' Sherman disappointed he won't receive gifts from Pro Bowl


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) In case you missed Sunday's Pro Bowl, Team Irvin knocked off Team Carter, 32-28, thanks to a second-half rally, which included touchdown catches by Emmanuel Sanders and Jimmy Graham.

While many Pro Bowl players that made the original roster were absent from the game due to injuries, Pro Bowl players from the Patriots and Seahawks also did not play due to preparations for next Sunday's Super Bowl.

One player who seemed upset about missing the Pro Bowl was Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. However, it was for a reason you probably wouldn't suspect.

“Only thing I’m disappointed in is they won’t give us our gifts from the Pro Bowl, which is kind of dumb,” Sherman said, per The Boston Globe. “The NFL is the only league that punishes the players who actually make the All-Star game by not giving them their gifts. It’s supposed to be watches and some other stuff, but we don’t get them so I couldn’t tell you.”

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman notches two INTs vs. 49ers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman picked off two passes to help spearhead a dominant performance by the Seahawks defense in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.

The Seahawks were relentless against the 49ers offense on Thanksgiving, holding the opposition to only 164 total yards on offense and just 3.2 yards per play. Sherman's first interception came on a misfired 20-yard pass from San Francisco's 30-yard line that made it appear the Seattle cornerback was the intended target. His second pick came on one of San Francisco's few trips into Seattle territory as Colin Kaepernick appeared to lose the cornerback in coverage and threw another pass directly to the defender.

The Seahawks defense managed a total of four sacks and three turnovers in the win. They'll look to keep rolling in Week 14 against the Eagles.

Sherman was Stanford's leading receiver as a freshman and a sophomore before transitioning into a corner. He came down with 73 receptions for 1,232 yards seven touchdowns in those two seasons at Stanford.

The Seahawks traded away Percy Harvin, one of their only playmakers at wide receiver. The team is currently ranked 30th in the league with 191.8 yards per contest, having failed to surpass the 200-yard mark in each of the previous four games.

Panthers ready for challenge of facing Seahawks' Richard Sherman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he won't be afraid to throw against Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in Week 8. However, he knows he has to be careful when he challenges one of the league's best cornerbacks.

"If the play is called for me to read it to Richard’s side, by all means I’m going to do it," Newton said, per ESPN. "And I’m going to give each and every receiver an opportunity to make plays.  I’m not going to force it. I’m not going to be an idiot. I’m going to do a great job of protecting the football and be aggressively patient in taking what the defense gives me."

Sherman will likely draw rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin for most of the afternoon Sunday. Benjamin is ready for the challenge.

"You can tell he loves the game," Benjamin said. "He brings the passion to it. He has fun. He talks a lot of smack out there, but this is football. I’m just going to come out there and match his intensity; play fast and be sound in all my assignments."


Cowboys will not be afraid to test Seahawks CB Richard Sherman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Opposing teams have completed just 7 of 15 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown against Sherman in 2014.

"If you go into that game with these guys, you wouldn’t really snap the ball," Garrett said of shying away from Sherman, per ESPN. "They have good players outside, they have good linebackers, they have good rushers, the free safety is fantastic. We have to go play. We have a healthy respect for their team -- all you have to do is put in the tape -- but we have to do what we do."


Richard Sherman 'still the raggedy dog'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said his $57 million contract extension won't change the way he approaches the game. He still has a chip on his shoulder from being drafted in the fifth round, after 23 other defensive backs, reports The News Tribune.

"I’m still the guy scrapping for a spot," Sherman said. "You never lose that mentality. You can take a ragged dog that’s been on the streets for 10 years and put him in a new house with steak, lobster every night and he’s still the raggedy dog you got off the street.

"I’m still the raggedy dog off the street. That mentality isn’t something I could change, I don’t think, even if I wanted to. Even if wanted to be, ‘Yeah, I’m a millionaire.’ I can’t do it. It’s not a switch that I have. I’ve been in this mentality. I don’t know anything else. This is how I’m going to be until I hang the cleats up. Then, I might try to eat caviar and drink wine, or whatever they do."
