Richard Sherman Admits to Decoding Broncos’ Hand Signals


The Seattle Seahawks were the champions at the Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, thanks in large part to Richard Sherman.

The 25-year-old cornerback helped his team beat the Denver Broncos 43-8, even though he suffered an injury to his foot mid-game.

Richard phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday morning and shared that he’s healing up well and his sprained foot is already feeling better.

The most interesting thing to come out of the big game day was the report that the Seahawks were able to beat the Broncos by cracking Denver quarterback Peyton Manning‘s hand signals to know which plays they were about to carry out.

Richard admits, “Yeah, a lot of film study gave us a lot of time to prepare …  that’s how we were able to be on top of them and hold their offense down.”

As for what the Seahawks did after the big win, Richard reveals they definitely celebrated. “We had a great time. [Coach] Pete [Carroll], everyone, had some drinks. We had a party [and] Macklemore performed.”
