(Renton, WA) -- Richard Sherman calls himself the "best corner in the game," and now his salary reflects that. Sherman has signed a four-year, 57-point-four-million-dollar deal with the Seattle Seahawks, with 40-million of it guaranteed. Sherman made headlines during the NFC Championship game earlier this year, when he broke up a pass in the end zone intended for 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree and tipped the ball to a teammate for an interception, sealing the Seahawks' win. Sherman went on a nationally-televised rant against Crabtree immediately following the contest, calling himself "the best corner in the game."
