Video: Richard Sherman looking forward to reuniting with DeSean Jackson

Monday night’s Seattle-Washington game also means a reunion for Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Washington receiver DeSean Jackson.

Sherman wrote about their relationship in this Monday Morning Quarterback story last April, recalling playing on a Little League baseball team with Jackson that was coached by Jackson’s father.

When Sherman met the media today, he said facing off against Jackson Monday will be fun.

“It’s always fun playing against family and friends,” he said. “You have a good time. It’s competitive, but it’s just the same competitive edge. But it’s a little more to it.”

Jackson is known as one of the more dangerous deep threats in the NFL and Sherman said keeping him from getting behind the defense will be a key Monday.

“Obviously you have to be aware of his speed,” he said. “I think everyone is aware of his play-making ability. Just got to stay on top of it; keep your eyes on him.”

The game also marks a reunion of Sherman and Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams, who had a much-discussed confrontation following Seattle’s 24-14 playoff win there in 2013 for which Williams was later fined $7,875.

Sherman, though, today indicated that bygones are bygones on that front. Williams later apologized to Sherman and Sherman said today  that”I mean it wasn’t a big deal. It wasn’t that big. We walked out with a win. The rest is history.”

You can see some of Sherman’s session with the media in the video below:
