It appears Richard Sherman was given some hefty public relations training prior to taking part in Media Day for the 2014 Super Bowl, suggesting he regrets ‘attacking’ Michael Crabtree.

Sherman went basaltic after the Seahawks won the NFC Championship, not only in his interview with Fox Sports’ Erin Andrews but on the field as well, taunting the San Francisco 49ers – Crabtree in particular.

But the Pro Bowl talent says he regrets doing that, telling the NFL Network and Deion Sanders that he took away from his team and suggested one should never treat another man like he did Crabtree.

In addition to apologizing (if you want to call it that), Sherman also said that he wants to be a better role model for the youth.

Sherman also told Sanders that if he wasn’t playing football, he’d still be involved in the sport somehow – be it through coaching or scouting.

Might be a little too late to apologize for his actions, but I’m sure his teammates appreciate the sentiments considering so much of the focus was taken off their impressive play and shifted towards the antics of Sherman.
