Richard Sherman said it was "really cool" to wind up a Tom Brady teammate. In the 2014 Super Bowl, the New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks in one of the most dramatic Super Bowl finishes. At the time, Brady was the Patriots' quarterback, while Sherman was one of the key pieces of the Seahawks' defense.
Last season, Sherman signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and played out one full season with Brady. "It coming full circle like that was really cool," Sherman said of his relationship with Brady on the All Things Covered podcast, per CBS Sports.
"He studies hard as (expletive). I'm like 'After 22 years, you ain't bored watching film?'"
Sherman on being pushed by Patrick Peterson
For many years, Sherman and Peterson were considered as two of the top cornerbacks in the league.
Sherman admitted that his rivalry with Peterson pushed him to become even better version of himself. "You really pushed me," Sherman told Peterson. "You really set the bar for me and the barometer of where to chase."
Sherman and Peterson had a great level of respect for each other but Sherman never really got along with Darrelle Revis. Sherman felt Revis never really respected him so there wasn't really much love between the two.
"I don't think me and Pat ever had anything personal," Sherman said. "With Revis, I don't know if he ever looked at me as a peer. You ain't about to talk to me any kind of way, like I'm just a slouch."
Also, Sherman expressed his hope that one day he and Peterson would enter the Hall of Fame. "I feel like we deserve it," Sherman said. "I feel like it's going to happen but I don't want to assume because that would be a heavy disappointment." During his career, Sherman made five Pro Bowls, earned three First-Team All Pro nods and won one Super Bowl.
