The NFL has seen several fiery and outspoken players throughout its history with Richard Sherman being a good example of that.
Sherman was one of the most competitive and talkative players during his time in the league and the former cornerback has taken that edge with him during his media career.
Shortly after retiring, Sherman was able to land a job as an analyst on “Thursday Night Football” on Amazon Prime Video where he provides his insight and analysis on the game.
However, the former Seattle Seahawk also recently became a regular on FS1’s “Undisputed” which features Skip Bayless.
Along with Bayless, Sherman also is joined by Keyshawn Johnson and Michael Irvin and managed to cause drama on set when he said that the cornerback position is harder than wide receiver.

After the clip made waves on social media, Brandon Marshall weighed in on the debate via the Paper Route podcast.
“A cornerback is a failed wide receiver,” Marshall said.

Most of the time, individuals who play cornerback have tried their hand at playing wide receiver so Marshall has a bit of a point.
While that’s not necessarily the case for every cornerback, there are numerous examples of people switching because they couldn’t cut it as a receiver.
Sherman knows the transition well as he started as a wideout at Stanford before being moved to corner.
Regardless, Sherman knew exactly what he was doing by making those comments on air and Marshall surely won’t be the only one to give their two cents on the matter.NEXT: George Pickens Receives Big Praise From Steelers Teammate
