NFL Note - Seattle Seahawks Sherman, Richard

1:21 AM

CB Richard Sherman declared NFL players need to be willing to strike in order to secure large guaranteed contracts like those being signed this offseason by NBA players. When asked by ESPN's Jalen Rose on Wednesday if NFL players would have to consider such a stance to get similar deals, Sherman was quick with a response. "Oh, 100 percent," said Sherman, who is also a member of the NFL Player Association's Executive Committee."If we want as the NFL, as a union, to get anything done, players have to be willing to strike. That's the thing that guys need to 100 percent realize. You're going to have to miss games, you're going to have to lose some money if you're willing to make the point, because that's how MLB and NBA got it done. They missed games, they struck, they flexed every bit of power they had, and it was awesome. It worked out for them."
