Congrats, Bro! Richard Sherman sends surprising message to Eagles’ McCoy
SEATTLE — If you listen to national sports media, you’d think the Seahawks Richard Sherman is nothing but a trash talking, arrogant cornerback who has nothing but distaste for other players.
But us 12s know this isn’t true.
Following the Seahawks 24-14 win over the Eagles Sunday, Sherman sent his jersey to Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, Bleedinggreennation.com reports.
But rather than trash talk or an in-your-face attitude, Sherman sent the jersey and signature as a congratulatory sign of respect to McCoy, who broke the Eagles’ all-time single-season rushing record last year.
McCoy ran for 1,607 yards on 3013 carries in 2013, passing a record posted in 1979 by Eagles running back Wilbert Montgomery
The message on the back of the Sherman’s jersey read, “To Shady: Bro, congrats on the record! you have earned everything you have gotten. Have respect for you and your game.”
In many sports such as soccer, exchanging jerseys after a game is done as a sign of respect for the other team. On Sunday, Earl Thomas was spotted wearing Eagles safety Chris Maragos’ jersey after the game.
Though McCoy has had a strong season, his day against the Seahawks was less than stellar, running for 50 yards on 17 carries and no touchdowns.
