Doug Baldwin happy Richard Sherman received tribute from Seahawks

first_imgEven though Richard Sherman’s time with the Seahawks came to an abrupt and slightly caustic close, his former Seattle teammates wanted him to know how much he meant to the organization.Sherman returned to CenturyLink Field for the first time as a member of the 49ers Sunday, where Seattle dismantled San Francisco, 43-16. “That was a tribute to my boy,” Baldwin said, via the Tacoma News Tribune. “I know all you guys think that we’re robots and that we’re not humans and that we don’t have emotions, but when you spend so much time with guys and doing what we do, day in and day out, it’s hard. You spend those hard days with guys that you love.”Sherm is obviously one of those guys that has done so much for this organization that we thought it would be nice to give him a tribute and we had an opportunity to do so. I know it was kind of weird, we’re scoring, he’s on the other team, we’re doing the tribute. But that was in our hearts this week.”Sherman said he didn’t see the tribute, but he gave Baldwin a quick hug before they ran back to their huddles. “That was a funny play,” Sherman said. “He ducked in and ducked out. That was pretty funny between us.”Sherman made headlines coming into the game about how he felt he was unfairly treated after the Seahawks cut him while he was recovering from an Achilles injury.However, Sherman’s return to Seattle seemed like a happy occasion. He was seen chatting with Baldwin and other former teammates after the game.
