    Count Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman among those who think the NFL would be wrong to pass a new rule against players using the N-word on the field.

    Asked about the proposal to make use of the N-word an automatic 15-yard penalty, Sherman told Peter King of that the NFL would be making a serious mistake if it passed such a rule.

    It’s an atrocious idea,” said Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman. “It’s almost racist, to me. It’s weird they’re targeting one specific word. Why wouldn’t all curse words be banned then?”
