Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman doesn't need a spokesman or PR firm to announce his new contract. He turned to a Stanford graduate with a degree in communications who is working on his Master's: himself.
"I am blessed to announce that the Seattle Seahawks and I have reached an agreement on a contract extension," Sherman wrote on his blog today.
Per Sherman, the terms of the deal are "4 years for a total of $57.4M with $40M guaranteed." Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times notes that this is an average of $14.25 million per year, topping the $12 million Darrelle Revis will make in New England this season.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
