Richard Sherman feels the best way the Seattle Seahawks could show him their appreciation is by showing him the money.

"Whatever they feel I am due. I will take it as respect," Sherman told NFL Network. "It's all about respect in this game and the only way people show respect is the dollars. We'll see what happens."

Contract negotiations between the Seahawks and the Pro Bowl cornerback are ongoing, but a source directly involved in the talks has told ESPN's Ed Werder that the sides are not as close as some reports have indicated.
