Pete Carroll believes Richard Sherman warrants some consideration as the NFL’s top cornerback

On Friday, the media asked Seattle Sehawks head coach Pete Carroll about cornerback Richard Sherman’s Twitter beef with jets corner Darrelle Revis.

“It’s obvious that Richard’s got a lot of free time on his hands,” Carroll said, per NFL.com.

“I haven’t read one word he said. I just see the pictures and the mouth open and I know what’s going on. He’s having fun with it. Richard knows what he’s doing. He’s having fun playing with the whole thing. And he had a tremendous season and a very, very good last season, so he’s got something to stand on right now. It’s better (than) when he used to talk when he didn’t.”

Carroll does believe Sherman should be considered as one of the top corners in the NFL.

“I think (Sherman’s) a great corner. I think he’s playing tremendous football. I think not enough people know about him yet, although he’s working on that. … I’ve never known how you scale the very best corner, you know, but he’s up there in consideration.”

While Sherman is certainly one of the NFL’s best cornerbacks, he needs to prove it over the course of several years.
