Superbowl’s Richard Sherman becomes highest paid Corner

Richard Sherman has been offered $57.4 million dollar deal for a four year extension with the Seattle Seahawks. It seems his “confidence” has paid off, as this is the highest amount a cornerback has received in the history of the NFL.

Announcing the news on his blog, Sherman includes: “This is a great moment for my family, foundations and the people who supported me to this point. Hard work and execution got me to this moment, the Seattle Seahawks have backed up that respect with this contract. The terms of my deal are 4 years for a total of $57.4M with $40M guaranteed. There is no other city or team that I would want to play football for.”

We are happy that Sherman is expressing a moment of gratitude, but let us see if his attitude on the field will change. We will see if he is the “best corner in the game,” at least for now he is definitely the highest paid. As for Michael Crabtree? Well he has a mere $3.5 million remaining on his rookie contract for his last year with the San Francisco 49ers.

Do you think this deal is fair? He did lead the Seattle Seahawks to their first Superbowl Championship.

Kevin Durant wins 2013-2014 Most Valuable Player over Lebron James

Kevin Durant wins the 2013-2014 MVP for the first time in his professional career.

Oklahoma City’s Durant took 119 of the 125 first place votes with Lebron James taking 6 of the remaining first place votes.

Durant has gained many nicknames in his career, “Durantuala,” “Slim Reaper” (this one he doesn’t claim), and the most recent “Mr Unreliable,” named on the cover of The Oklahoman and within 24 hours changed to “Kevin Up” as an apology from the editor.
