Richard Sherman says Falcons CB Desmond Trufant is 'a beast'


Richard Sherman may be the most outspoken player in the NFL today and likely one of the most outspoken in the entire history of the game. But while some talk trash and can’t back it up or some talk trash and are just awful at it, Sherman has made it into an artform and seems to be grooming his television career already.

Twitter has been a good friend to Sherman has he constantly interacts with fans and takes an occasional Twitter beef to the next level. But he’s not always bashing other players on Twitter as he had some kind words for second-year Atlanta Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant.

Trufant was one of the best cornerback prospects in the draft last year and is poised to have another great season for the Falcons in 2014. Atlanta’s abysmal season in 2013 sort of overshadowed Trufant’s rookie season and made us forget how touted he was coming out of Washington.

Sherman knows talent when he sees it and his endorsement of Trufant is awesome but shouldn’t be taken lightly.

    Richard is good people on and off the field. Supports his team mates, especially the brothers in the LOB. Supports his community off the field. Always willing to give credit where credit is due. Trufant had a great rookie season, and desrives the acalades. GO HAWKS!
