Early Life and Career Beginnings

Richard Sherman is a defensive back and wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks, born in 1988 to two college athletes. In 2005 he led his Dominguez High School team to victory as its senior class president while also winning state championships in both football and track & field jumping events.

After graduating from Stanford University, Sherman found his niche as a cornerback. Beginning with the football team in 2008 he racked up 112 tackles before switching to cornerback where he continued playing until 2010 when one of his knees was injured and ended that year’s season. He graduated college with a BA in Communications after winning 12-1 for the best record since 1975 which is also three years following their last Rose Bowl win against Iowa on New Year’s Day 2006.

Start with the Seattle Seahawks

In 2011, Sherman was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks and signed a four-year contract worth $2.22 million. His debut in professional football came when he played against the San Francisco 49ers following his draft selection; it ended with an unfortunate loss for him as well as many other players on his team. A few weeks later, he made is first solo tackle during Atlanta’s game which ended up being another defeat for them but this time leading to better stats than before: six tackles total versus two earlier games combined!

Despite these defeats usually occurring around once every week or two of playing with a losing record so far from both teams that are just too experienced at winning – they weren’t ready yet–Sherman notched himself some wins after intercepting a pass during the 2011/2012 playoff games.

In 2013-14, Sherman was voted to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career and made it to Super Bowl XLVIII. He then won against Denver with a score of 43-8; this makes him one of only four players from Seattle’s team who have ever been on championship teams that we’re able to win both conference championships as well as an appearance at Superbowls.

On Sunday, January 22nd of 2017, the Seattle Seahawks made a major announcement via Twitter: “Seattle has traded cornerback Richard Sherman and its 2018 second-round draft selection to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for their 2018 third-round selection.” This was shocking news considering that just two days prior on Saturday night (January 20th) at around 11 pm PST Time Zone he tweeted out “I’ll be back…you can count on it.” The tweet received more than 18 thousand retweets but this time would not have been true. He concluded his message with #12s we’ll miss you! referring to fans who cheered him during games wearing 12 jersey’s or shirts. A fan then replied saying shucks, 12s will miss you too.

Final Years with the Seahawks

Sherman, who was released from the Seahawks a day after his release to join the 49ers for their season and Super Bowl LIV, had mixed success. His first interception with San Francisco in 2018 came when he scored his first touchdown against Green Bay during an NFC Championship Game victory at home 37-20; however, Sherman’s efforts were not enough as they lost 39-27 to Kansas City Chiefs during Super Bowl LIV.

San Francisco 49ers

Sherman was sidelined with a calf injury in September of 2020, but he managed to make his return on November 20th. His first interception came soon after that and helped the 49ers win their 23rd game of the season. Sherman became a free agent at this point due to being released by San Francisco following an impressive year where he recorded four interceptions total for 21 yards gained while also making 44 tackles over 16 games as well as recovering one fumble before sustaining another leg injury which brought him back down into inactive status once again until shortly thereafter when he signed with Oakland Raiders temporarily last April 1st just so they could use some additional help defensively during training camp since it’s common knowledge now that injuries happen all too often these days especially late in seasons or early ones.

In July of 2021, just five months before his arrest in May of 2022, he was arrested under suspicion for a felony charge that later got dropped and replaced by 5 misdemeanours such as resisting arrest and driving while intoxicated.
