San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman offered flattering remarks for Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson. While speaking at his Pro Football Focus podcast with NBC’s Cris Collinsworth, the 5-time Pro-Bowler suggested the 21-year old has a “very unique” route-running game and has looked like he has played in this league a long time.
Via Steve DelVecchio of Larry Brown Sports:
“I can’t think of a comparison,” Sherman said. “He’s very unique in his route-running. I think if you put some Marvin Jones, some Allen Robinson in there … He’s very veteran, even his slants he’s able to put a little extra wiggle in the short amount of time you have to run those routes.
