Richard Sherman says teammate Earl Thomas should be Defensive MVP
Media in Washington state is the best, especially when they interview Richard Sherman the cocky but confident corner back for the Seahawks.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is tied for the league lead with six interceptions. His teammate Earl Thomas is one behind with five interceptions. So who would Sherman vote for right now at the NFL’s defensive player of the year?
“I would have to give it to Earl,” Sherman said. “I think if there is anywhere that the defensive player of year should be, it should be in Seattle, whether it’s myself or Earl. But Earl is having a fantastic year. He’s flying around tackling everywhere, forcing fumbles, getting interceptions. I don’t think there is anybody out there playing better defense, and our defense is number one in the league. So I think he should get it.”
