Richard Sherman named among NFL’s 30 best players over 30

Aug 8, 2020 at 1:38 PM--


Who doesn't love a good random ranking during training camp? NFL Media posted its list of the league's 30 best players over 30, and San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman comes in around midway through the ranking.

A player will have to be 30 years old as of the scheduled start of the season on September 10 to qualify for this ranking. Sherman is 32. Then the players are ranked by Ali Bhanpuri and Tom Blair according to who they feel is best right now.

Sherman came in at No. 16, one spot ahead of future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bhanpuri and Blair wrote the following about Sherman's placement within the ranking:

"Did you think Richard Sherman was donezo following his injury-shortened final season in Seattle and lackluster first year in San Francisco? Shame on you. Shame on me. Shame on us all. Sherman was the top-graded cornerback by PFF in both overall and coverage grades (minimum of 800 snaps) -- yes, over Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore. He also ranked 11th in passer rating allowed (59.6) among DBs with 40-plus targets, per NGS, helping the top-ranked passing defense push San Francisco to Super Bowl LIV. Sure, he gave up a big play in The Big Game, but he's not worrying about it, so why should you? After a little wobbliness, Sherman put himself on track to close his career as the elder statesman on a top contender."

Sherman is entering the final year of the three-year deal he signed with the 49ers in 2018 after seven seasons with the division-rival Seattle Seahawks. He was Pro Football Focus' highest-graded (90.3) cornerback last season.

The Arizona Cardinals went into Levi's Stadium on Sunday and upset the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20. It was not the start Richard Sherman and his team wanted for what they hoped would be a bounce-back season in response to February's Super Bowl defeat. Sherman was asked after the game what the 49ers can take away from the loss, and what it might mean for the team moving forward. "It just comes down to executing down the stretch," Sherman responded. "Any time you get to play, we got to knock the rust off some things, some communication things we have to do better, but I think overall, we feel good about where we are. "They played a good game. They made some plays at the end. [Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray] made some plays with
