They are. Too bad he's not making first round money.... but those are the breaks. He hasn't played an entire season yet. He's played a total of 20 games I believe over the course of 2 seasons. I'm sure he's in line for a nice raise, but many others have had a nice first full season and done little else.
One thing I'd like to see Sherm do is bulk up. He doesn't even weigh in at 200 lbs. That's so skinny. I'm 6'1" and was a decent athlete in my day (no Richard Sherman of course) and at 185 I was breaking down all the time once I hit about 26 or 27 years of age. I had to get up to about 205 to make it through a season of anything. I'd rather see him pick up 10 pounds this offseason and fill out a bit more like Browner has done since he left OSU. Browner has done it and maintained his speed and I have no fear that he's going to get broken in half.
On another Sherman note...... has anybody else wondered if they've ever drawn up and practiced a play with him lined up at WR? He's basically the same size as Sidney Rice and his adjustment to the ball in the air is something that he obviously picked up as a WR in his early college career. I think it would be fun to see him in on a play or two a game at WR like how Darren Woodson used to be used when he was a young CB (and not an old safety like he is now).
I think Sherman would be a better offensive weapon or decoy for us than Tebow is for the Jets.... but then again, maybe Red Bryant would be too. Now that we've had Sidney and Golden throw TD's, it's time for M-Rob to get in on the act since he's a natural QB and Marshawn to throw one. I don't think he has since he was on the Bills. Everybody has a TD throw but Flynn. Ouch.
