Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a certified loudmouth who has gained his reputation around NFL circles — players, media, fans — thanks to on-field antics, as well as alleged off-field transgressions. What people often forget is that Sherman is also a very motivated fifth-round pick out of Stanford, who can be rather eloquent at times (Sherm refers to himself as an “enlightened person”). In case you missed it, Sherman has hopped on board with Peter King’s MMQB with a column titled “In This Corner”. He only has three entries so far, but the small body of work is strong enough that we suggest adding it to your NFL blog rotation — if only to gain a perspective of the NFL from one its most outspoken, and probably misunderstood players. Today, Sherman expounds on the effects of cutting a veteran teammate. In this case, Pro Bowl fullback and fan favorite Michael Robinson, whom the Seahawks cut last Friday. Sherman is quick to point out he only played with Robinson for two years, but they struck up such a close friendship that Sherman volunteered at Robinson’s summer football camp in Virginia — 3,000 miles from Sherman’s hometown of Compton. He also talks about how a veteran cut — Marcus Trufant in 2011 — once benefited him, by opening up a spot in the secondary his rookie season. As someone who follows the Seahawks (confession: I’ve never been the biggest Seahawks fan in the world, but I do root for them), Robinson will definitely be missed. His web series “The Real Rob Report” was a refreshing look inside an NFL locker room, as it highlighted personalities of the game we don’t often see in highly-controlled, neatly-packaged NFL productions.
