The hall of famer and current Atlanta Braves Senior Vice President tweeted for the first time in six months to the controversial Seattle Seahawks defensive back:
"Hang in there & keep playing as well as you did Sunday. Excellent job - you have my support."
Aaron had not tweeted from his account, which has 40,000 followers since last July but broke his twitter silence in order to give Sherman a vote of confidence, not that he needs it.
Sherman sparked a twitter storm on Sunday night as he was involved in the winning play of the NFC Championship game and then berated San Francisco 49ers receiver, Michael Crabtree in a live television interview.
The Seahawks player has since apologised for taking attention from his team in their moment of glory.
It is not yet clear whether the 25 time All-Star and one time Pro Bowler have any deeper connection or maybe Aaron is just angling for free Super Bowl tickets for next week.
