Richard Sherman: Demaryius Thomas is a top five receiver

On Saturday,  Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas made it clear that he wants Richard Sherman to cover him during the Super Bowl.

Sherman told the media on Sunday that he believes Thomas is a top five wide receiver.

“I definitely think he’s top five,” Sherman said. “He put together the type of year and done everything in his power to put himself in that conversation. He’s made big catches, he’s got a lot of run after the catches, he turns some small plays into huge plays, and I think that he’s a great receiver. He’s a great competitor, and I’m sure it’s going to be a fun night for both of us because we’re both intense competitors and good players.”

Well, at least Thomas has Sherman’s respect unlike Michael Crabtree.
