News comes that Richard Sherman, perhaps the greatest cornerback pro football has seen, a player who helped the Seattle Seahawks take the 2014 Super Bowl, has been released by the team.
This brought to mind some of Sherman's many memorable words (he is as good behind a microphone as he is blocking a pass). He said, "It gives me something that nothing else does--that rush, a sense of belonging. It's where I'm at home. The game is my muse. It's my release, my stage, my family. It's the place I feel like I'm made for."
After the announcement of Sherman's release, Las Vegas bookmakers dropped the odds of the Seahawks taking the 2019 Super Bowl to 30-1.
