Richard Sherman on potential future NFL lockout: ‘It’s going to happen’

Sep 6, 2018 at 1:50 PM--

Richard Sherman, who has served as one of the NFLPA's vice presidents since 2014, fully expects to see a lockout before a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is reached. The current deal runs through the 2020 season. Sherman warns that after that, fans are likely to see a player lockout similar to the one which occurred during the 2011 offseason.

"It's going to happen," Sherman said on Thursday. "It's not like guys are guessing on that one."

Why does the San Francisco 49ers cornerback believe that a lockout is inevitable?

"Because there was a lockout before (in 2011)," Sherman responded. "We don't plan on changing anything about the deal that we currently have right now. I don't think it's going to be negotiated before the end of the CBA. It's going to cause a lockout, and then we'll deal with it from there."

Sherman recently joined the "Adam Schefter Podcast" and said that players are better prepared this time around for a potential work stoppage.

"I think that the players' side is definitely more prepared for a potential work stoppage this time around," Sherman said. "I think we have more contingency plans in place. Our players are more informed, the process is more transparent, and I think we really have keyed (in on) what we're going to be looking for in these negotiations."

Richard Sherman concerned about 49ers as his former squad faces must-win game

Richard Sherman has been high on his former squad, the San Francisco 49ers. Earlier this month, he predicted a Super Bowl win for Kyle Shanahan's team. Then, two weeks later, after an 0-1 start, Sherman doubled down on that prediction. Is his faith in the 49ers' chances this season starting to waver? San Francisco is now 1-2 after an 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. They say defense win championships, and the 49ers have one of the best in the league right now. While that unit looks to be in mid-season form, the offense has

49ers-Broncos: Jimmy is going to be Jimmy

No matter how you want to spin last night's loss to the Denver Broncos, this one was solely on the quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo finished the game, completing 18 passes on 29 attempts for 211 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. Statistically, Garoppolo was better than Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, but as Garoppolo says, stats don't matter. It's all about winning football games. It's almost like 49ers fans are stuck in an episode of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone when Jimmy Garoppolo plays. One week you get this fired-up style of quarterback that appears willing to do whatever it takes to win a game, and then you have the incompetent type of quarterback that looks lost like a deer in headlights. The first quarter of the game seemed promising. The
