Seattle Seahawks Rumors: Richard Sherman Wasting His Time Covering A 'Washed-Up' Larry Fitzgerald [VIDEO]
When the Seahawks battle the Cardinals Sunday night, Richard Sherman is better off covering someone that matters. There's no need for the two-time Pro Bowler to waste his time covering the likes of Larry Fitzgerald.
But don't take our word for it, take Fitzgerald's.
"I haven't had 1,000 yards in three years," Fitzgerald said, per the Cardinals' official website. "I hope he doesn't follow me. Old, grizzly, washed-up veteran.
"Go follow Mike [Michael Floyd] or something, or Smoke [John Brown]."
Nice try, Fitz, but no one is buying what you're selling. Especially entering Week 10.
In 5 games vs Larry Fitzgerald, Richard Sherman has been targeted 17 times. Fitzgerald has caught 5 passes for 87 yards and zero TDs.

In eight starts this season, Fitzgerald has amassed a team-best 55 receptions for 706 yards and seven TDs. Productivity on that level is worthy of attention.
The question is: how much?
Fitzgerald has primarily operated out of the slot under Bruce Arians -- a foreign location for Sherman, who likes to operate on the outside. Shadow coverage would open the numbers for Carson Palmer to dissect.
It's the main concern -- as Fitzgerald points out -- facing Seattle on Sunday.
"Who would he [Sherman] follow, though?" he wondered. "We're all pretty much the same."
Well, not quite. Not every Cardinals WR is as productive and "washed up" as No. 11.
