Richard Sherman accepts apology from Washington’s Trent Williams

Rihard Sherman calls slap from Trent Williams a ‘cheap shot’
By Danny O’Neil | The Seattle Times


“Received a very classy text from @TrentW71. Great player! This is an emotional game no ill will either way. Have a great Pro Bowl! Well deserved.”

In a decidedly grown-up and accountable fashion, Washington tackle Trent Williams owned up to being out of lined for swiping at the face of Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman after Sunday’s game. Not only that, he reached out personally to Sherman, according to a text from Sherman.

In an era where sorry-if-you-were-offended apologies are as close as anyone gets to saying they were wro, um, wrrrrooooo, um, mistaken, it’s kind of refreshing to see someone own up for a mistake made in the heat of the moment.
