Richard Sherman shares the story behind his relationship with Tom Brady

Rumors surrounding Richard Sherman were thick in the past few weeks. The former Seattle man was linked with a lot of teams, including the Carolina Panthers and his former team, the Seattle Seahawks. Despite multiple options, he eventually zeroed in on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he signed a one-year deal with them.

After the official announcement, Sherman, during his first press conference as a Bucs player, shared how Brady approached him. “He reached out initially and just checked to see if I was in shape. He and I have had a relationship over the years. He’s a great guy. Very encouraging.”

“What happens on the field stays on the field”

Sherman obviously is a veteran in his own right and at one point, both Brady and Sherman were pitted against each other. Despite that, they managed to set aside their differences. “Obviously, we had our history, but what happens on the field stays on the field. Off the field, I think we have a very solid relationship.”

He then revealed how Brady personally reached out to him to play for Bucs, which was too big a gesture to say no to. “And I think we both thought it would be really cool if we had an opportunity to play together at some point in time. Obviously, with our situations, it didn’t seem likely at any point in time, but he reached out and said they may express interest. And obviously, he wanted to play with me.”
