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.

    Please get the facts straight in this article! McCoy set the ALL-TIME Eagles record during this game, not single season record. He didn’t have 3300 carries in a season, and certainly not for a 0.5 yards per carry average as you’ve claimed. Please edit your article!
