Richard Sherman explains sideline outburst; threatens to 'ruin' reporter's career

RENTON, Wash. – Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman addressed his sideline outburst during a press conference.  

Sherman remained adamant Tuesday that yelling in the direction of offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell was not out of line in Seattle's 24-3 win over the Rams.

Sherman was angered by the decision to pass the ball on first-and-goal from the 1-yard line, a throw that was intended for Jimmy Graham and was nearly intercepted. Seattle scored two plays later on a pass from Russell Wilson to Doug Baldwin.

Sherman met with Carroll on Friday morning and said the meeting was productive, but added he had no regrets for his actions. "Sometimes things need to happen like that," Sherman said.

The outbursts continued, as Sherman threatened a reporter for his line of questioning while leaving the podium at the end of the conference. Sherman told 710 ESPN’s Jim Moore, “Don’t go there,” and “I’ll ruin your career.”

Moore asked how Sherman how he would do that.

“I’ll make sure you don’t get your media pass anymore,” Sherman said.

Hours after that interaction, Sherman tweeted: "I appreciate the role the media plays and they have a tough job. I let it get personal today and I regret that. Next one should be fun." He followed up with a lighter hashtag to explain: "Pete said I don't control credentials."
