As if there weren’t enough story lines to sustain Sunday’s game between the Seahawks and the Redskins, a new angle has been added on Friday, courtesy of Washington defensive lineman Kedric Golston.
As linebacker Lorenzo Alexander was being asked whether Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman should be on the field on Sunday given the positive drug test that was overturned on appeal, Golston interrupted.
“He’s a cheater,” Golston said of Sherman, via Jim Corbett of USA Today.
Cornerback DeAngelo Hall opted, uncharacteristically, to take the high road. “I’m happy he won it,” Hall said of Sherman’s appeal. “I don’t know all the details of it. If he won his appeal, he won his appeal. We obviously would have been better off it he wasn’t playing, but he’s out there. We have to deal with who’s out there. There’s nothing we can do about it.”
Other than, you know, call Sherman a “cheater.”
