Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman made it clear on Sunday that he has a lot of respect for Champ Bailey.
“I think he’s going to be a Hall of Famer once his career is done,” Sherman said of Bailey, a 12-time Pro Bowler who’s making his first-ever Super Bowl appearance in his 15th season in the league.
“He’s kind of laid out the base work to be a lockdown corner in this league. He did it for a long time, and he’s still doing it. For him to get to a Super Bowl I think is a great accomplishment for him, especially in 15 years in the game, man. That’s not easy to do.
“I think you’ve got to tip your hat off to him.”
