The Seahawks star defender also suggested ESPN may have made it all upWritten by: Joseph Czikk
There’s been no shortage of drama revolving around the Richard Sherman – Russell Wilson locker room story that came out in ESPN a few weeks ago.
Now star cornerback Richard Sherman is telling USA Today that he wants to tell his own story. Not the story that was written with the help of “cowards,” by writer Seth Wickersham.
“He asked a few questions to a few cowardly people. And I’ll be calling you cowards if you’re afraid to put your name on it,” Sherman told USA Today’s Seahawks Wire. If you have a comment, if you’ve got something to say, you’ve got something to ask or something and you’re not willing to put your name on it, you’re kind of a coward.”
Sherman continued to suggest that Wickersham, the author of the ESPN story, could have made up his sources or his quotes.
“But maybe they’re not cowards and maybe these people never existed,” added Sherman. “Because who knows? You don’t even have to exist. You don’t have to prove anything in this world anymore.”
Wickersham’s articled alleged that the Seahawks defense won’t let go of coach Pete Carroll’s decision to throw the ball in the final moments of Super Bowl LXIX. The play resulted in Patriots corner Malcolm Butler’s game-saving interception.
As well, Wickersham alleged that the defense as a whole holds resentment towards Carroll’s over-optimistic outlook. They also hold resentment towards Wilson, who constantly seemed to hold a similarly over-positive attitude, even when the offense struggled mightily last season.
According to USA Today, Sherman may choose to write his own story in The Player’s Tribune, a website in which he holds a financial stake in. Sherman’s (unrelated) last post for the site came on Thursday, entitled “Stand Up.”
