Coming out of college this gridiron star had a chip on his shoulder. He got some bad press about his attitude and felt that he fell in the draft because of it. But Pete Carroll, the coach of the Seattle Seahawks saw something in this warrior that he felt was going to be special. He drafted him, signed him and Richard blossomed into the lockdown cornerback that he knew he could be.
After leading the number one defense in the NFL to a Super Bowl victory two years ago, Sherman received a nice fat contract extension, making him one of the highest paid defensive players in the game. He rewarded himself by purchasing his $2.3 Million dollar mansion where he can rest and recuperate after chasing receivers all day long.
This gorgeous home has 4 bedrooms and over 6 bathrooms. He has a wet bar, a full-sized regulation basketball court and a couple of beautiful fireplaces that he can enjoy if he ever slows down for a couple of minutes. As for that bad press he got coming out of college…they say success is the best revenge. Well played Richard.
