Infamous Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has ruled out a move into politics when he finishes his NFL career, according to reports in the U.S.

In a recent article the 25-year-old, who has been in the headlines for a number of reasons lately, detailed that despite the growing amount of people wondering if he will take his tell it how it is attitude to congress once he hangs up his cleats, he has no intentions of leaving the game.

“People have asked me about a life after football, and more than once I’ve been asked about a life in politics,” he wrote.

“Sorry, but it’s not for me. I want to stay around the game of football and teach as many kids as I can. I want kids to experience football as a gateway to visit places and see new things, the way it was for me. It’s been a gift from God to be able to play the game and understand it at a high level, and I think I need to share it.”

Sherman was the talk of the town last month following his interview with Erin Andrews after the win over the San Francisco 49ers that put the Seahawks into the Super Bowl. Of course then he went on to be a major part of the solid defense that shut out the Denver Broncos and bought the championship back to Seattle.

Judging from the reputation he’s forged for himself during his football career, Sherman would likely have plenty of people backing him were he to set his sights on politics. For now though, fans will have to be content with his ever-entertaining antics being confined to the NFL.
