Why Nahshon Wright Reached Out To Richard Sherman

So we spoke and we have kind of a mutual respect.”

Wright’s initial comparison drew surprise from Sherman on Twitter, but apparently the 10-year veteran didn’t take offense.

“He told me if I ever needed help that I could reach out to him,” Wright said. “Richard is a great guy.”

He’s off to a good start in rookie minicamp, with an interception and a pass breakup on Saturday.
