Richard Sherman praises Emmanuel Moseley, remains confident in third-year corner

Aug 5, 2020 at 6:38 AM--


Veteran San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman recently said third-year cornerback Emmanuel Moseley would greatly benefit from the first-team reps he is about to get in training camp. That sounds like a vote of confidence from Sherman that Moseley is a shoo-in to fight off any competition for the starting job opposite him.

"I think he'll have a whole training camp of starting," Sherman told The Athletic. "It's a different preparation and a different mindset when you come into the year knowing where you stand and being able to prepare in that way. And I think that will be good for him."

Sherman sat down — virtually — with the media on Tuesday and was asked about Moseley and if he could elaborate on his praise of the young defender. Sherman responded by rattling off a lengthy list of attributes that make Moseley, in Sherman's eyes, so talented.

"He does a lot of things well," Sherman said. "He's really smart. He adjusts as he goes. He learns. He gets smarter throughout the game. He's poised. He's poised in big games. The moments are never too big for him. He's consistent. He's consistent in practice. He's consistent in the games. And he'll only get better."

The 49ers signed Moseley as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2018. He registered 50 combined tackles, eight passes defensed, and an interception through 16 games in 2019.

Nine of those 16 game appearances were starts after Moseley replaced injured cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon. Witherspoon returned to his starting role in the playoffs but was quickly replaced by Moseley.

Moseley started in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers and recorded an interception against Aaron Rodgers. He went on to start in Super Bowl LIV against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Trent Williams received a video from his head coach on Sunday after the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was the block he had on linebacker Jordan Hicks during the game. "Wow, it's good to have you back," Kyle Shanahan said in the message that included the highlight. That block went viral on Sunday, and rightfully so. Williams absolutely obliterated the defender on the play, which featured tight end George Kittle on an end-around run. Here's some cleaner video of that viral clip of Trent Williams killing a man in broad daylight.

At some point, Richard Sherman will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He'll have to wait until five years after retirement to do so, and some wonder when the San Francisco 49ers' veteran cornerback will decide to call it a career. It sounds like that will be after the 2023 season. And Sherman hopes to continue playing for the 49ers. "I do believe that I have good years left in me," Sherman told reporters after Thursday's practice. "I'm only going to play three after this. That's what the wife (Ashley) told me. I don't call any shots after that. "Three years after this, if the good San Francisco 49ers would love to keep me on this ball club, I'd love to be here. But after that, I'm going to go into the booth." Sherman is entering his

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh spoke with reporters after Thursday's practice as his team prepares for its Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. When you look at the Cardinals offense and the fact that they were able to run the ball so effectively, particularly after getting Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake last year despite using a lot of three or four wide receiver sets. Why do you think that it is and how difficult is it to defend an offense like that given that they like to spread defenses out? "Give them credit. They've got a good system. They've evolved as the course of the year went
