Richard Sherman is an American football cornerback who was picked in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks.  During the peak of his career, Sherman used to be one of the top corners in the NFL. He was an important member of the Seahawks’ Legion of Boom secondary.

But, in his eleven years of a football career, he won’t be on an NFL sideline when the regular season begins. Instead, he became a pre-game and postgame analyst for Amazon in June this year. 

And since he has taken a media job now after suffering a calf injury, it has started appearing like his football career is now close to an end, however, it may not be so necessary. In an interview with NFL Network, when Sherman was questioned whether he has retirement plans now, to which he answered “No, no, I’m still leaving that door open as long as I can,” adding further “I’m obviously going to keep training and staying in shape, but gotta take the opportunities when they’re there, and this is an amazing opportunity with Amazon, so I couldn’t pass it up.”
