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."

Colin Kaepernick has harsh words for Richard Sherman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"It was a ridiculous statement," Kaepernick told the Sacramento Bee about Sherman calling Crabtree an average receiver. "Crabtree's one of the best receivers in the league, in my opinion. ... To me, to have someone try to call him out that way is absurd."

Peyton Manning: I do throw ducks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Sherman called Manning the smartest quarterback in the NFL and praised his passes as accurate and on time. But he added what seemed like an insult to anyone but Manning.

"I believe it's true as well," Manning told the Denver Post. "I'd say he's a smart player. I don't think it's a real reach what he's saying there. I do throw ducks. I've thrown a lot of yards and touchdowns ducks so I'm actually quite proud of it."


Peyton Manning: I won't avoid Richard Sherman

"I definitely think he's top five," Sherman said, per NFL.com. "He put together the type of year and done everything in his power to put himself in that conversation. He's made big catches, he's got a lot of run after the catches, he turns some small plays into huge plays, and I think that he's a great receiver. He's a great competitor, and I'm sure it's going to be a fun night for both of us because we're both intense competitors and good players."
