Richard Sherman is not going down quietly. Last week, the Seattle Seahawks decided to release Sherman, After signing with the Niners, the four-time pro bowl cornerback spoke with Bleacher Report’s Uninterrupted and took some parting shots at his former team.
“I think they’ve kind of lost their way a little bit in terms of how they see players and how they evaluate players
It just became an issue of devaluing core players that are playing at a high level and really being curious about younger players and curious about the unknown,” he added. “They say, ‘Maybe this guy is going to be the next guy’ instead of saying, ‘Hey, you have Hall of Fame talent in your secondary, how about you ride this out?’ It would be like Pittsburgh saying, ‘Troy Polamalu is great but let’s figure out what this guy behind him has.’ ”
Sherman also took aim at coach Pete Carroll, whose philosophy appears to have grown thin with many of the Seahawks veterans.
“A lot of us have been there six, seven, eight years, and his philosophy is more built for college,” . “Four years, guys rotate in, rotate out, and so we had kind of heard all his stories, we had kind of heard every story, every funny anecdote that he had.
“And honestly because he just recycles them. And they’re cool stories, they’re great for team chemistry and building, etcetera, etcetera. But we had literally heard them all. We could recite them before he even started to say them.”
Sherman gets to play the Seahawks twice next season and I can guarantee that he’s going to be talking up a storm before and after those games.
