Sherman says reports of racial tension at Seahawks are just lies

Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman dismissed the reports of racial tension in the Seahawks' locker room after online reports detailed alleged issues with quarterback Russell Wilson.

Last week, a report by Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman detailed that some Seahawks players did not feel starting quarterback Wilson was "black enough," as Freeman put it.

Freeman stated in his piece that those comments were backed up by Seahawks players he had spoken to, but never one to say no to getting involved in a bit of controversy, cornerback Sherman decided to give his take on the so called racial tension in Seattle.

Report was all lies

Following Seattle's 13-9 victory over Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Sherman took full flight in his criticism of the report.

"Nobody in here said that," Sherman said. "It's made up."

Tough times for the World Champs

There is no coincidence that reports, false or true, like this are coming out of Seattle during a tough time for the franchise.

Last year was a world-wind season for the Seahawks, but in the 2014 NFL season they have already equalled their loss record from a year ago.

But as we saw on Sunday, the Seahawks are far from done this season. Seattle's impressive defense strangled the Panthers on Sunday and restricted them to three field-goals.

Don't count out Seattle just yet, no matter what issues they may have going on in their own locker room.
