Richard Sherman is one of the NFL's most outspoken players, and the Seattle Seahawks' star cornerback has come to the league's - and its players - defense following criticism by President Donald Trump regarding protests during the national anthem.
In a tweet Saturday, Sherman described Trump's behavior as "unacceptable" and called for all to "condemn" him:
Trump said NFL owners should fire any players who opt to protest during the "Star-Spangled Banner" at a rally Friday in Huntsville, Ala.
Sherman also defended the NBA's Stephen Curry. The Golden State Warriors' superstar guard said Friday he'd vote against a White House visit, leading Trump to withdraw the team's invitation Saturday (though head coach Steve Kerr said the Trump administration hasn't actually invited the Warriors for a visit).
Trump's comments have drawn harsh responses from around the league, including commissioner Roger Goodell, NFL Players Association director DeMaurice Smith, and a host of NFL players.
