Motormouth Richard Sherman gets slapped

Richard Sherman likes to talk.

Apparently, Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams didn’t want to listen.

After Seattle’s win over the Washington Redskins – a chippy game that included trash talking from both teams leading up to the contest, Williams approached Sherman at midfield.

But instead of the customary handshake, Williams, who kept his helmet on, greeted Sherman with an open-handed slap.

Sherman said that Williams came up to him and told him he was going to take a swing at him.

“Then swing,” Sherman said. “He thought I was going to be scared. I’m not scared of him.”

Williams followed through with his threat, hitting Sherman with an open hand before a Seahawks team employee stepped in to break things up.

Seattle receivers coach Kippy Brown pulled Sherman away from Williams as the Seattle cornerback waved goodbye to him.

“You know, it’s the playoffs – everybody gets a little frustrated,” Sherman said. “If you lose, your season is over. You want to keep advancing. It was a frustration play – I guess is what you can call it. But you never kind of want to be involved in that. I wasn’t looking for anything. I was trying to shake hands, and that’s how it happens sometimes.”

Sherman finished without a tackle, as Washington stayed away from his side of the field most of the day.

Williams apologized in the locker room while talking with reporters.

“Just high emotions, man, and you know, I let them get the best of me,” Williams said. “It’s nobody’s fault but mine. I got to calm down a little bit. It is just when you lose a game like this with high intensity, you are on edge and I reacted in an immature manner.

“I am taught better than that, just got to be better. It takes a big man to walk away and next time I just have to be a bigger man.”
