Richard Sherman feels healthy, “able to move and groove”

Cornerback Richard Sherman was recovering from a torn Achilles tendon at this time last year and that process lasted well into his first season with the 49ers.

A recent report indicated Sherman never got back to full health in 2018, but Sherman’s second year with the team is off to a more promising start. On Tuesday, Sherman said he couldn’t play as fast as he wanted to last year because the injury created a “kind of inhibition” in his mind before saying that he’s back to playing his preferred style.

“It’s the first time in a few years that I’ve been able to move and groove like I wanted to,” Sherman said, via ESPN.com. “I had the MCL a few years ago, had the Achilles. This offseason, I don’t have anything, thank goodness. And I’m able to just move and explode and just get to the spots I want to. I can stop when I want to stop; I can go when I want to go. It changes the whole dynamic for me.”

The 49ers are sorting out how their cornerbacks stack up and that process will be an easier one if they continue to know that they can count on a healthy Sherman to occupy one of the spots on the defense.

  1. I’d be saying the same thing in a prove or lose it type year. It’s all talk until he takes the field, and we all know how much he likes to talk.

  2. Is this a real healthy or a sort of faked-report (unpunished) lie like half his time with Hawks?

    looking forward to seeing Milli-Vanilli get torched up and down the field this season.

    When is that going to happen? Even on a bad wheel, he only gave up 2.5 completions per game, only gave up 3 TDs all year, and was the least targeted CB in the game, meaning QBs fear him more than any other player. He remains the dominant defensive player of his era and you can’t stand it.

    Richard, good to have you here with us! Loved you when you were last a dominant player, like in 2015.

  5. No, he is no longer a dominant defensive players sorry.

    At best he’s still decent and not a liability yet.

    His dominant days are over.

  6. It’s nice seeing him fade out after the appalling way he treated Revis when his career was winding down.

  7. The guy everyone loves to hate.

    Darn good player when he is healthy, borderline great.

    Also a very sharp guy and has interesting takes on things.

    I flat out don’t like the guy though. He talks too much.

    You’re the instigator, the orator of the town
    You’re the worst when you converse, just a big mouth clown
    You talk when you’re awake, I heard you talk when you sleep
    Has anyone ever told you, that talk is cheap

    A big blabbermouth, that’s what you are
    If you were a talk show host, you’d be a star
    I said your mouth is big, size extra large
    And when you open it, it’s like my garage

    You always like to gossip, just like a girl
    You talk so damn much, it’s outta this world
    When you’re reincarnated, in your second life
    You won’t be a man, you’ll be a nagging wife
