Redskins OT Trent Williams Apologizes For Shoving Seahawks DB Richard Sherman
After Washington's 24-14 loss to the Seahawks, Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams approached Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman and the two men exchanged a few words. Within seconds, Williams shoved Sherman in the face, forcing the smaller defensive player backward.
Both men attributed the incident to the high intensity of NFL playoff football, and Williams took the blame for his actions, JP Finlay of CSN Washington reports.
“Just high emotions, man, and, you know, I let them get the best of me. It is nobody’s fault but mine,” Williams said to the media after he was able to collect himself from the postgame brouhaha.
“I’ve got to calm down a little bit. It is just when you lose a game like this with high intensity, you are on edge and I reacted in an immature manner,” Williams said.
“I am taught better than that. [I’ve] just got to be better. It takes a big man to walk away and next time I just have to be a bigger man.”
As far as a penalty for Williams, Sherman said that he expects the NFL to handle it, Sherman said he hopes the incident won’t become a big deal, but he expects it will be handled appropriately.
In the hours after the game, Sherman posted on Twitter that he received a text message from Williams apologizing for the shove, and that Sherman has no ill will towards the Redskins tackle.

i really don't think sherman got the bad side of the exchange but maybe i'm in the minority. yeah, he got made look like a punk but he handled it perfectly to make williams look bad and any fallout falls on williams. frankly, sherman is an irl troll and he's winning.
