Richard Sherman on Crabtree: “I hope to play him every year for the rest of my career and choke him out.”


Some people just never learn when to stay mum on a situation. As the old saying goes, “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all,” that doesn’t apply to Seattle Seahawks All-Pro CB Richard Sherman. The self proclaimed best cornerback in the league, Sherman again took a jab at San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree on a episode of American Muscle which airs tonight at 9 pm ET on the Discovery Channel.

Sherman who already signed autographs saying, “Sorry Crabtree,” took another hook as he said, “It’s much more of just I don’t like the dude. You know what I’m saying. And I think he’s sorry. So it’s really what it comes down to.”

Sherman went on to say, “It’s not going to be something that goes away. I hope to play him every year for the rest of my career and choke him out. There’s not much else I can say about the subject. Nobody will understand it but him and me. That’s all that needs to understand.”

With a new year on the horizon do not think for a second that Crabtree will be out for blood as he looks to redeem himself against the boastful but very talented former Stanford cornerback.
