Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had a lot to say as he met the local media Wednesday for the first time since the team considered trading him in the offseason.
Here is all that Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had to say Wednesday when he met with local media following the second of the team’s three mini-camp practices.
It was the first time Sherman had talked to local media since last season and his first time to address offseason trade rumors.
On his offseason: “It’s been great, outside of running around with kids, blowing up toys and watching them get destroyed, buy more toys, buy a car, lose a car, break a car, getting kicked in the face by kids . . . outside of that, it’s fantastic. Football is football.”
On what he thinks led to the trade talks: “It’s just a conversation they have every year. I guess this year, more people knew about it. It’s a conversation they have every year — everybody’s open, everybody’s available. They just made sure I knew, and you guys found out. Pretty open about it. It was never a situation where anybody asked for it. It was just a conversation.”

On if he was okay with the team considering trading him: “I didn’t mind. You know this is a business, football is always a business. You understand that from the day you get in it. You don’t have much choice in the matter. You just gotta live your life. Don’t worry about it.”
On if he thought he would still be with the Seahawks this season: “I wasn’t worried about it in the least. Bobby (Wagner, who was watching with the media) was worried about it — he has veins in his head. Bobby is assistant GM. But he wasn’t worried.”
