Free agent cornerback Richard Sherman is saying he is ready, both physically and mentally, to play again in the NFL.
After Sherman was released from the 49ers, he was charged with five misdemeanors which include a DUI and a trespassing charge with a domestic violence element in July. A disturbing video that was released of Sherman shows him banging on his wife’s front door aggressively, and he appeared visibly angry.
Sherman, in an interview with Doug Farrar of USA Today, admitted that he’s sought out help and his resume should stand more firmly than a momentary lapse of judgment (h/t Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk).
“I’ve got a decade worth of resume that should stand more firmly than a momentary lapse in judgment. I’ve got a decade of character and tape to be judged off of. If you’re judging me off of a momentary lapse, I’m probably not the player for you either way,” Sherman said.
Although Sherman says his court case won’t be resolved until the end of the season, he hasn’t heard anything from the league about being disciplined for his July arrest.
Sherman, 33, has played his last three seasons for the 49ers after playing for the Seahawks for seven. Sherman believes he’s in the best physical condition he’s been in since he torn his achilles during the 2017 season.
Some of the teams that have expressed interest in Sherman include the Buccaneers in addition to the aforementioned Seahawks and 49ers.
