Sherman Says NFL Caved in Pressure to Fine Him for Hit on Bills Kicker

Richard Sherman

Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman said Thursday he will not appeal a fine levied against him by the NFL for what was determined to be a late hit on Buffalo kicker Dan Carpenter in Seattle’s 31-25 win over the Bills Monday night, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

That doesn’t mean he agrees with it.

Sherman said he received a letter from the league informing him of the fine and said the league’s reasoning is that Sherman “hit him after the whistle.”

Sherman insists there was no whistle, despite the fact that the NFL says there was one.

Sherman said that dispute makes it meaningless to try to fight the fine.

“They made sure they made it unappealable because they said they can’t hear the whistle on the film,” Sherman said. “And they said I hit him after the whistle, which was not true. But you can’t really appeal something that is ‘he said, she said.”’
