Patrick Peterson recently became the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL with a $70 million deal that includes $48 million guaranteed. Sherman signed a new contact in the spring worth $56 million, with $40 million in guaranteed money, but that didn’t stop Sherman and Peterson to talk trash to one another on twitter. Well Sherman told 710 ESPN Seattle that his comments about Peterson is just fun and games, while his hatred for Crabtree is still real.
“It’s all fun,” Sherman said Monday on 710 ESPN Seattle. “We’re just trying to see who’s the most clever. We’re friends. We’ve known each other since the [NFL] combine [in 2011]. We’ve worked out together and he’s a great dude.”
Peterson said last week that he also has fun with his tweets to Sherman.
So are Sherman’s feelings about Peterson different from his feelings about Crabtree?
“Much, much different,” Sherman said.
I love Richard Sherman, because the guy is a real individual. It will be interesting to see how this years game turns out between the Seahawks and Niners.
