Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree won’t be hanging out with each other anytime soon.
“It’s much more of just I don’t like the dude,” Sherman said during an appearance on Wednesday night’s episode of “American Muscle,” which was viewed early by For The Win. “You know what I’m saying. And I think he’s sorry. So it’s really what it comes down to.”
Sherman’s ire at Crabtree dates back to an incident at Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald’s charity softball game, which both men attended before the 2013 season. The animosity continued when Sherman went on national television and ripped Crabtree moments after the NFC Championship Game last season.
“It’s just about him, it’s just about Crabtree,” Sherman says on tonight’s show.
“It’s not going to be something that goes away. I hope to play him every year for the rest of my career and choke him out. There’s not much else I can say about the subject. Nobody will understand it but him and me. That’s all that needs to understand.”
