Name the last time an NFL player had a press conference broadcast on CNN. If such was to happen, it was because there was a major story developing or an iconic player (say like Peyton Manning, Brett Favre) were leaving their team. And even a broadcast of that is highly questionable.

Outside of something special, a news network broadcasting an NFL press conference? It doesn’t happen. Well, unless you’re Richard Sherman.

We’re still a week and a half away from Super Bowl XLVIII and Richard Sherman has apparently become so big in recent days that he is having his press conference broadcast on the news network.

CNN isn’t alone in the broadcasting as CBS (not CBS Sports) decided to stream the press conference as well. This all for a player who has played three seasons in the league and has a lone Pro Bowl appearance under his belt (though technically it should be two).

I guess if any player wants to become a national sensation, go crazy in an interview.
