Richard Sherman Discusses Player-Owner Relationships In The Players’ Tribune Interview

usa-today-8351870-0

Richard Sherman is not only one best cornerbacks in the NFL but the Stanford graduate is also one of the smartest guys in the NFL.

On this week’s edition of The Player’s Tribune’s Players POV, the Seahawks all-pro cornerback discusses the relationship between the NFL players and the owners.

Via The Players Tribune:

We play a violent game that has a one hundred percent injury rate. So now that we’re a couple of weeks into the season, everybody’s banged up — some guys worse than others, some teams worse than others. But everybody’s feeling it. It just comes with the territory — decisions and sacrifices you willingly make coming into this game.

But as dedicated as we players are to this game, it’s getting more and more difficult to ignore the fact that we don’t have a league that shows the same kind of dedication when it comes to taking care of the players who are laying their bodies on the line every Sunday.

It’s a huge issue — one that a lot of players talk about behind closed doors, and would like to talk about more openly. They’re passionate about it and they want to see change.

I feel like I have a voice, and I have the mindset and the courage to come out and say something about it.

Well said, Sherm.
