Richard Sherman, cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks, is still riding high from his teams Super Bowl win on Feb 2nd. The Stanford grad is a relative newbie to professional football but has already earned himself a reputation for being incredibly outspoken, never shying away from offering his opinion or saying what’s on his mind.

Tom Brady is familiar with Sherman’s antics, on Oct. 14, 2012, following a victory over Brady’s team, the New England Patriots, Sherman taunted the quarterback.

Terrell Owens is now a retired wide receiver who played 15 seasons in the NFL, his last team was in fact the Seattle Seahawks. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Owens holds or shares several National Football League records, and features in the all-time top-five in several receiving categories, including yards and touchdowns. Now he spends his time lending his celebrity to charitable causes, making personal appearances and fulfilling his endorsement obligations. Notoriously known by his initials, T.O., he is known for making a statement on and off the field. Here, he wears the Altair A4027 optical style at a personal appearance last fall.
