Sports Illustrated says Richard Sherman isn't putting on any sort of act - he is a tough guy with bravado that can't be kept quiet. It might be at least part of the reason why he was picked for this week's cover.
In the feature article, SI says Sherman lets loose on his infamous Twitter beef with Darrelle Revis and his eventually over-turned suspension for allegedly taking Adderall.
While he's got the mug for the cover, Sherman also recently agreed to write a regular column for the magazine's new all-football website, MMQB (short for Monday Morning Quarterback). Sherman writes that he hopes his column will give readers "an unfiltered look into my life, my team and the lives of all NFL players."
