Now Richard Sherman Is Getting Paid Like The Best Cornerback In The League

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has said he's the best in the league at his position. Now he's getting paid like it. The two-time All-Pro signed a lucrative contract extension with the Seahawks on Wednesday, making him one of the highest-paid cornerbacks in NFL history, the Associated Press reported.

Not surprisingly, Sherman announced the deal on another platform where he dominates: Twitter.

"The terms of my deal are 4 years for a total of $57.4M with $40M guaranteed. There is no other city or team that I would want to play football for," Sherman wrote on his blog. "Greatness is realized from countless hours of work, studying, practice, sacrifice and courage. This is just the beginning and I will continue to set the bar higher and higher on and off the field."
