American football cornerback Richard Kevin Sherman (born March 30, 1988) is currently a free agent. In the 2011 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks picked him up in the fifth round.
In 2013, when he helped the Seahawks win their first Super Bowl, he led the NFL in interceptions and was voted to the Pro Bowl for the fifth time and was voted All-Pro for the fifth time, three times to the first team. Sherman was a football player at Stanford, where he started off as a wide receiver before switching to cornerback as a junior.
The Seattle Seahawks selected him in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He entered the league with the highest interception and pass-defense totals among all active players, and he has maintained that lead ever since.
Sherman spent his formative years in Los Angeles, where he attended Dominguez High School and excelled in both football and track & field. In 2005, as a senior, he had a total of 870 receiving yards on 28 receptions and 3 punt return touchdowns for a total of 1,030 all-purpose yards.
The defensive back had 45 tackles, eight pass breakups, and an interception in the championship game as Dominguez defeated Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High School, 41-14, to win the CIF Southern Section Division III championship. When he was a senior at Dominguez High School, his peers voted him “Male student most likely to achieve,” and he went on to earn his diploma.
Sherman was a key member of the Seahawks‘ starting secondary, known as the “Legion of Boom,” which helped Seattle have the best pass defense in the NFL in 2013. The Seahawks’ 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII was the third largest margin of victory in Super Bowl history, and it was aided along by this unit.
Richard Sherman, a former NFL cornerback, has stated that there is no quarterback controversy involving Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush, but that Rush has earned himself some money.
The 2022 season for the Dallas Cowboys seemed doomed from the start when it was announced that starting quarterback Dak Prescott had fractured his right thumb in Week 1. Instead, Cooper Rush’s performance as a backup QB has led to two straight wins for the Cowboys. Even more impressive is the fact that Rush has never lost a game while serving as the starting quarterback.
Prior to Week 3’s matchup with the New York Giants, owner Jerry Jones indicated he was hoping for a quarterback controversy.
As the veteran NFL cornerback stated on his podcast, “The Richard Sherman Podcast,” there is no quarterback controversy between Prescott and Rush. But he claims that Rush was financially independent.
Cowboys Cornerback Richards Sherman Claims There Is No Quarterback Controversy in The Team
There is no quarterback controversy, and I’ll tell you why: Dak makes too much money. Sherman predicted there would be no quarterback debate because of the high salary. However, it’s great to know that Cooper Rush is financially stable at the moment.
Prescott signed a lucrative $160 million contract before the 2017 season. The deal spans four years. He had a season-ending ankle injury in 2020, therefore that was the result. As a quarterback in 2021, Prescott had a completion percentage of 68.8 and threw for 4,449 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
One game into the 2021 season, Rush had started and led the team to a 20-16 victory over the Minnesota Vikings by throwing for 325 yards and two touchdowns. After losing his first start as a starter for the Cowboys, he helped lead the team to two victories in a row.
Rush completed 19 of 31 passes for 235 yards and a score in Week 2’s 20-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Rush then completed 21 of 31 passes for 215 yards and a score on Monday Night Football in Week 3.
Rush is expected to start Week 4 against the Washington Commanders while Prescott is targeting a return in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Sherman was a member of Marvin Lewis’ North team that lost 24-10 to the South in the 2011 Senior Bowl on January 29. Sherman had two pass deflections in the game. When Curtis Marsh Jr. hurt his hamstring on the first day of practice, the team quickly stepped in to replace him with Sherman.
His draught stock rose after his strong showing at the Senior Bowl. Sherman participated in the NFL Scouting Combine and successfully finished all of the combine and positional workouts.
Sherman tried to do better during Stanford’s pro day on March 17, 2011, after struggling at the combine. His times in the 40-yard dash (4.53 seconds), 20-yard dash (2.56 seconds), 10-yard dash (1.58 seconds), vertical jump (37 inches), broad jump (11 feet, 0 inches), short shuttle (4.29 seconds), and three-cone drill were as follows: (6.72s).
Most NFL draught experts and scouts believed that Sherman would be picked in the fourth through sixth rounds of the draught. It was predicted that Sherman would be selected in the second round by Sporting News, while Peter Schrager of Fox Sports had him going in the fifth round.
