Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Richard Sherman wasted no time in his first practice with his new team, immediately giving tips and advice to young players on defense.
Safety Jordan Whitehead absolutely enjoyed being around Sherman as he thinks the Buccaneers needed a leader like Sherman on defense.
Sherman, who spent the summer and the first three weeks of the season as a free agent, had multiple offers but ultimately decided to sign with the Buccaneers.
“He was teaching us things, some pointers,” safety Whitehead said. “From the walk-throughs, he was teaching and asking us questions and giving us hints so it’s good to have him out there. … We told him, ‘We’re all young. We kinda need that leader.’ He came in today and he started giving us lots of tips, he was talking ball with us. He fits right in. It’s like he’s been here for a while.”
