Football is a business. When the offseason hits and the business of football slows down, that’s when the business of Richard Sherman kicks into gear. That means photo shoots and public appearances. It means opening the doors to his own Wingstop franchise, which he did in August. It means increasing his community involvement by visiting and mentoring kids at schools in and around Seattle.

Below is a lens into Richard’s busy offseason work and play.
