Richard Sherman Says Falcons WR Roddy White Is 'An Easy Matchup'

    A month after the Seahawks lost to the Falcons in the NFC divisional round, cornerback Richard Sherman has weighed in on Atlanta wideout Roddy White.

    During an appearance on ESPN's NFL Live last week, Sherman called White "an easy matchup. He'll be another easy matchup next year. This is just fact.â€￾

    Sherman expanded upon those thoughts Friday.

    "[White's] strengths are in their system, within their system," the cornerback said. "His strengths aren't his own.

    "Julio Jones' strengths are his own. Julio Jones is a dynamic playmaker. It doesn't matter what scheme he's playing in, he's going to play well. If he's out wide, if he's in the slot, he's going to present problems. Roddy can present problems for certain people, but he's a product."

    OK, Richard, then how do you explain White's 47-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter of last month's playoff game? The one that came with you in coverage?

    "During that game, for example, the play where he caught the touchdown, the touchdown wasn't really on me, to tell the truth," Sherman said. "But I'm not going to throw a teammate under the bus, because I'm not that kind of player. If that's what you guys want to say, I'll take it."

    Sherman added that the Falcons keep White close to the formation to help him against press coverage. Or as Sherman put it: "The big, bad corners of Seattle."
