Richard Sherman Laughs At The Idea That He Was 'Exposed' By The Chargers

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Even after a loss, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was able to laugh on Sunday. That's because the two-time All Pro apparently heard everything San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen had to say after his team's win over the defending Super Bowl champs. Allen, who had five catches for 55 yards and no touchdowns, took some shots at Sherman following San Diego's 30-21 victory.

The 22-year-old second-year receiver called Sherman "just a normal guy" and claimed that he's "not really a shutdown corner," per The News Tribune. According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, other Chargers players used the word "exposed" when referring to Sherman.

"All week we said we were going to throw at him because he's not what he's hyped up to be," Allen said, via utsandiego.com.

Rather uncharacteristically, Sherman actually didn't speak to media after the game. But, as the chatty Pro Bowler tends to do, Sherman eventually brought the discussion to social media and shut down Allen's trash-talk in fewer than 140 characters.
