Richard Sherman says he laughs at talk he could be traded

AP

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is aware that there’s been some talk that he could be traded, but he finds it more amusing than anything else.

Sherman said on ESPN that he doesn’t buy into talk that he could be traded, although he believes the Seahawks would miss him if he were gone.

I just laugh it off, man,” Sherman said. “It’s funny to me. But sometimes people need to see you gone to realize what you had. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. But I don’t let things like that bother me. The chips will fall how they’re supposed to.”

The talk of trading Sherman started with former Browns and Patriots executive Michael Lombardi saying Sherman could be available in a trade for the right offer. Of course, every player in the league is available for the right offer, but there’s been no word on what the Seahawks would consider “the right offer” for a player like Sherman.

Sherman doesn’t sound too concerned about the possibility that he’ll be anywhere other than Seattle this season.

    Pete will trade you the second you arent worth your pay. They all would

    Over-Paid…Over-Rated…Over-Screechy…Over-Opinionated…Over-Him.

    I would trade him just to see his reaction .

    Did he pose for that photo?

    How about the Raiders? i’d love to see him have to scrimmage with Michael Crabtree through training camp…

    What about the 5 ‘you knows’ omitted from that quote

    This guy was born to be a RAIDER!!!

    Make it happen Big Reg

    luckily kaela carpenter isn’t the gm.

    A lot of things are laughable…until they aren’t.
    Kind of like when Sherman was yukking it up during SB. XLIX… until he wasn’t

    Sherman is a legend in his own mind. We saw how great he is when the best player in their secondary went down — Safety Earl Thomas.
    Sherman was abused by WR’s after Thomas went down. If it weren’t for his big mouth, he’d be just another DB.

  14. nomoreseasontix says: Mar 24, 2017 6:30 PM

    Of course he does. He may be a loud mouthed idiot, but he’s a wealthy loss mouthed idiot.
    He’ll laugh until the day in the next year or so that the league collectively, but separately, decides he’s no longer a viable corner.

  15. gstewart400 says: Mar 24, 2017 6:42 PM

    One of my favorite moments from this jerk came from seeing his face when Malcolm Butler intercepted the ball. I absolutely cannot get enough of watching that video of this self-important, aggrandizing piece of garbage.

  16. ariani1985 says: Mar 24, 2017 6:43 PM

    Remember when you had the 1 year dynasty Richard?

    You should probably add that he is a loud mouthed idiot that you would instantly love if he played for your team.

    Who cares what he says. He can flat out play.

  19. nomoreseasontix says: Mar 24, 2017 6:50 PM

    I would puke in my very own mouth if the Raiders traded for him.
    Seriously.

  20. nomoreseasontix says: Mar 24, 2017 6:55 PM

    He’s exactly the kind of “look at me” kind of guy that I would stay away from.
    Without the help of the pro bowl safety over the top, he’s been exposed as an average cover guy.
    He’s basically all hat and no cattle.

  21. cadreamer1969 says: Mar 24, 2017 7:05 PM

    It’s just Lombardi being a shock, troll to stir up the flock.

  22. igocommando says: Mar 24, 2017 7:14 PM

    I’m laughing about it too. Who in their right mind would trade for that overrated jerk.

  23. polegojim says: Mar 24, 2017 7:25 PM

    Please LAUGH SILENTLY… take a page out of Marshawns book please.

    Sherman would look good in Green and Gold….

  25. worldizending says: Mar 24, 2017 7:30 PM

    So grateful he is not on my favorite team.

  26. tangotwo22 says: Mar 24, 2017 7:45 PM

    All Db’s have a shelf life…..His is pretty soon to expire. Plus who wants to put up with his Bullcrap.

  27. raidercode says: Mar 24, 2017 8:02 PM

    Who cares what this moron says? he’s beyond annoying… he was funny for about 3 minutes and now he’s just pathetic. Please stop reporting the garbage this clown spews…

  28. holidlove says: Mar 24, 2017 8:29 PM

    I should’ve chose sports over school. I’ll say this: if there were “grumblings” at my job that I was being transferred/fired/whatever, I wouldn’t just “laugh it off.” Unless, of course, I knew for a FACT that my boss wouldn’t have a younger, similarly-talented, cheaper guy replace me.

    I don’t have a “guaranteed employment at [xxx]” clause at work. Neither does he.

  29. nhpats says: Mar 24, 2017 8:45 PM

    When Thomas went down Sherman was exposed as average. He doesn’t have much trade value.

  30. charger383 says: Mar 24, 2017 9:40 PM

    If it happened he would cry louder than T Owens ever did

    “One of my favorite moments from this jerk came from seeing his face when Malcolm Butler intercepted the ball.”

    Thats cool, one of my favorite moments was the look on his face the year before when they demolished the Broncos to the score of 43-8

  32. gpete1962 says: Mar 24, 2017 10:48 PM

    Do us favor, go to Cleveland and just disappear .

  33. tedmurph says: Mar 24, 2017 10:51 PM

    Sherman is a good, not great player. He keeps trying to come off like he’s some together, smart professional. He’s really just a paranoid, insecure, angry mess.

  34. bduncanscott says: Mar 24, 2017 10:54 PM

    I’d Laugh to! He’s the weakest DB on his team. He was just clever enough to realize he could use his mouth to generate attention instead of his performance 😉 name one number WR he ca hang with or shut down without help

  35. higheriqthanyou says: Mar 24, 2017 11:28 PM

    nhpats you’re embarrassing yourself.

    Like most Pats fans don’t really know a lot about football.

    Sherman rated #1 CB in NFL 2017 by NFL.com.

    Devonte Freeman and a 3rd rounder for Sherman. He could reunite with Dan Quinn. Falcons would have one of the best defenses in the league. Maybe they wouldn’t give up any more 25 point leads.

  38. granadafan says: Mar 25, 2017 3:13 AM

    Sick Sherman is easily one of the most despised players due to him being the biggest diva in the league, bar none. Dick really is arrogant enough to believe he’s untouchable. That’s a Stanfurd trait

  39. cakesw says: Mar 25, 2017 7:59 AM

    Apparently… Unbeknownst to Sherman, is that he is slowly falling down the wrong side of the “Great/Annoying” grid….

    Sure, he is a great player, but he’s not nearly as good as he was in the past….

    Sure he has always been annoying, but that portion of his game is gaining traction…

    Once the annoying gets equal to or beyond the great…. Bad things start to happen

  40. Kal Daniels, pull hitter says: Mar 25, 2017 8:33 AM

    Yeah, saying “this player could be available for the right offer” is pretty meaningless. Does Lombardi even have a source?

    My car could be available for the right offer, doesn’t mean that someone is going to make me an offer on it at any time in the next decade.

  41. toybkshr says: Mar 25, 2017 9:08 AM

    If he get’s in the coaches faces again during the games, Buffalo, Cle, Cin, Jests, etc could all be landing spots.

  42. saints12013 says: Mar 25, 2017 10:39 AM

    Maybe Seattle should trade him to the Browns and we’ll see if he’s talking that grass isn’t always greener talk.

    Earl Thomas does indeed make that secondary what it is. He’s just not a big mouth like Sherman so he doesn’t get the publicity.

    And who cares if NFL.com rated Sherman # 1 ? their are 100s of media outlets and rankings are different in all of them. I seen one and they had David Amerson ranked # 1. I seen another one and they had Casey Hayward ranked # 1

  43. anywho123 says: Mar 25, 2017 10:47 AM

    Man, he is one smart guy, eh?
