Seahawks Sherman Named NFC Defensive Player of the Month
Seattle’s All-Pro cornerback received the honor for his shutdown play in September.
Here are the stats on Sherman so far this season: eight tackles, six passes defensed and four interceptions, one returned for a touchdown.
It’s the first such mention for the Stanford grad, and the first time ever that a Seahawks corner has been named a defensive player of the month.
Sherman took to Twitter to respond:
Thank you everyone but this is an award for the entire defense! LBs… D Line… And of course my brothers in the L.O.B.
