Richard Sherman: I Don\'t Have A Relationship With Russell Wilson 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Nov 30, 2018 1:18 am

Richard Sherman said he doesn\'t have a relationship with former teammate Russell Wilson.

\"I don\'t really have a relationship with Russell,\" Sherman said. \"We were teammates. We played through a very special time for the franchise.\"

It was mentioned to Sherman that he knew what Wilson was capable of doing making plays outside the pocket. Sherman responded by saying that he\'s also seen Wilson struggle.

\"Yeah, I\'ve also seen him throw five picks in the game, so you see what he\'s capable of on both sides of it,\" he said. \"You understand that he can be defended, so you go out there and give it your best shot.\"

Wilson threw five interception in Seattle\'s 2016 loss to the Packers.

Wilson praised Sherman as being \"as good as it gets at corner\" and said he has a lot of respect for him and how he plays the game.

\"He\'s going to be a Hall of Fame corner,\" Wilson said. \"He\'s a guy that meant so much to our football team when he was here. Just how many plays he made. ... He was always able to teach the younger guys as well.

\"And so, to be able to go up against him in practice every day helped my career and just helped my understanding of the game and just confidence in everything else going against one of the best corners. ... So I\'m grateful for that.\"
