Buccaneers cornerback Richard Sherman returns to the injured reserve with an Achilles injury and will not be able to return this season.
Sherman signed with Tampa in Week 4 for $1.35 million and played in 5 games, starting in 3 due to injuries to the Buccaneers secondary. He recorded 1 interception, 1 fumble recovery, and 11 tackles.
The veteran cornerback said in a recent Tweet that [things] didn’t go how he wanted them to but is grateful for being able to play again. Sherman also mentioned that he will continue with the team throughout the playoffs and help with coaching.
Didn’t go how I wanted it to but I’m grateful for the opportunity to strap it up again! Look forward to continuing this journey with my teammates and coaching my butt off. Thank you for all the support this season. The body gave all it had and I’m grateful.

Many fans are taking to social media and expressing disgust with Richard Sherman, stating that he robbed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for money and was not worth what they paid him. However, Sherman taking on the role of an assistant DB coach has certainly benefited the team very much. If Richard Sherman retires from playing in the NFL at the end of this season, coaching is surely in his future. Possibly, still with the Buccaneers.
