Richard Sherman, the cornerback for the Seattle Sea Hawks, fired back at Antonio Cromartie following remarks that he made earlier last week regarding his play and his position in the NFL.
For those who don’t know exactly what’s going here I will take the time and take you back to last week. While addressing the media last week, Antonio Cromartie, the New York Jets cornerback, said that Sherman is not that good in fact he is not the best cornerback in the National Football League at the moment. He went on further and stated that Sherman is actually a liability given the fact that he doesn’t switch sides while on the field.
Fast forward to this week and Sherman, after he had completed the team’s OTA session, fired back at Cromartie. While addressing the media he called the remarks made by the New York Jets cornerback, Cromartie, as “very unfortunate.”
He did not stop there, the Seattle Sea Hawks cornerback went on to state that Cromartie should actually be thankful given that he was the main reason why Cromartie got a pro-ball bid during the 2014 season.
“Its very sad that he is talking bad about me. If you come to think about it, he should be thankful given the fact that I helped him during 2014 in his quest of getting a Pro Bowl bid….,” he said while addressing the media.
Last season Cromartie was playing for the Arizona Cardinals and he was able to make the Pro Bowl as an alternate due to the fact that the Seattle Sea Hawks and their cornerback, Richard Sherman were taking part in the Super Bowl.
