I can differentiate between illegal actions and non illegal actions..

I am telling you that what Richard did was NOT much different than Incognito and Cooper.. Both Incognito and Cooper have a MOUTH problem as does Sherman.. get it?!

I am NOT comparing him to Aaron Hernandez

Sherman's agent, Jamie Fritz, told CNNMoney that interest in his clients has boomed since the remarks. While Sherman's current endorsements amount to just a bit more than his $550,000 NFL salary, Fritz believes there are millions in deals that will be signed soon, -- some before the Super Bowl is played Feb. 2.

"We have some new players who have come to the table who are starting the conversation," Fritz said.

The remarks caused an immediate sensation -- positive and negative -- in social media and on sports talk radio, among fans accustomed to bland comments from winning players.

Some advertisers fret about the controversy generated by the rant. But Fritz thinks the rant was more positive than negative for Sherman's image.


Richard Sherman's $5 million rant - Jan. 24, 2014
I think this is more Fritz trying to SPIN some BAD PR into something else. He might get an odd local endorsement out if it but I don't think we will see him in a Subway commercial or any national commercial anytime soon..

You can tell me whatever you like, but I'm just pointing out what you said is ridiculous. And it's not unfair that people who think about things will differentiate actions from different actions and treat them appropriately (ie incognito and Cooper) vs this.

There is only 1 player in the NFL top 10 in jersey sales for this past year that plays defense (which makes them the highest selling defensive player) .......... this player is a 5th round draft pick, from a relatively low exposure university known more for academics, playing in the far NW corner of the county and just completing his 3rd season

I'll let you take a guess to who that player is

What's your point?

90% of those jerseys are bought in the PNW! Perhaps he could get a spot with Starbucks!

shouldn't you be forwarding these stats to a large retailer vs me.. I'm not gonna get him a gig with Subway?

yeah - the PNW is a large enough market to get 3 players in the top 10 without any sort of national sales................

the point is pretty clear - no other defender has sold more jerseys than him in 2013, not even stars in large markets or that play for iconic franchises

however, even if it was all local sales that is an incredible draw that would be worthwhile to national companies that sell product in that area for a targeted approach

either way, he's positioned to cash in a lot more than any other 5th round defensive player in their 3rd year that I can remember

I think it is better to be drafted later then you think you should of been drafted. How many times do you see players get drafted in the first round and fail in the NFL?

Also I think when a player gets drafted high some times he is like yea I am good I do not have to work as hard any more and slack off . They get an ego and people telling them how great they are.

It seems if you get drafted vary late you have this chip on your shoulder and have something to prove to all the doubters or haters.

And no doubt Justin Beiber's behavior probably helps him sell more music. There should be no doubt Dennis Rodman's antics were calculated and it made him relevant and richer. I sound like the old guy I swore I'd never be but it's just a F'd up world when bad behavior is rewarded.
