Seattle's Richard Sherman thinks he's the best cornerback in the NFL. Earlier this week, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he didn't think Sherman was the league's best cornerback. So it only makes sense that the man who brought "U mad, bro?" into the sports-insult lexicon would try to crown himself king of postgame rants after the Seahawks defeated the 49ers, 23-17, in the NFC championship game on Sunday. After deflecting a pass intended for Crabtree in the end zone that led to a Seattle interception and clinched the win, Sherman gave a brief, but memorable, interview to Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews immediately after the game: "Well, I'm the best corner in the game.

Russell Wilson is a Super Bowl champion. He's the face of the Seattle Seahawks. He's a superstar who has endorsement deals with Nike, EA Sports and Levi's, to name a few. And he is now the third-highest paid quarterback on the Seahawks' roster. On Monday, Seattle traded for former Oakland Raiders starter Terrelle Pryor, who is set to make $705,000 next season. He will compete for the No. 2 quarterback spot with Tavaris Jackson, who will earn $1.25 million. Wilson is locked in next year for $662,434 -- and there's nothing anyone can do about it because rookie contracts cannot be renegotiated until after the player's third season.

Nike revealed its new NFL uniforms Tuesday. And unlike the somewhat unconventional looks of the company's college apparel, the pro football garments are sticking with a mostly traditional look ... with one exception. The Seattle Seahawks were the only team that requested a new look from Nike, which took over the NFL clothing license from Reebok on April 1. And, boy, did they ever get a new look. Anyone who thinks neon went out in the '80s with lip gloss and plastic bracelets may need to think again.

Film and football fans who turn out to see Kevin Costner's NFL drama "Draft Day" when it opens this weekend will watch many real-life teams in fictional action, including the Cleveland Browns that Costner's general manager character runs and the Seattle Seahawks with whom he wheels and deals. One team you won't see: the New York Jets. The colorful, sometimes embattled franchise of Namath, Maynard, Martin and Toon was scheduled to play a key role in the picture, directed by veteran helmer Ivan Reitman.

The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed they will hold a tryout for Brian Banks, the former Long Beach Poly football star who was freed after serving five years in prison for a rape case in which he was falsely accused. Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll did not speak to reporters after the Seahawks' off-season workout on Wednesday, but the team confirmed that Banks will work out for the team on June 7. Banks, now 26, pleaded no contest 10 years ago on the advice of his lawyer after a childhood friend falsely accused him of attacking her on their high school campus.

SEATTLE - First came the Seattle Seahawks' blowout victory, one of the most lopsided final scores in Super Bowl history. Then the unofficial celebration burbled up, a little Sunday night mayhem in polite Seattle fashion - a few torched sofas, a damaged historic building, maybe half a dozen arrests. A Twitter hashtag (#HowSeattleRiots) followed, with tweets mocking the ways a laid-back citizenry goes crazy when its home team wins the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the first time: “Throw garbage in the compost-only bin.” “The Priuses are honking.” “Wearing sandals without your socks.” Tuesday, the president called.

LenDale White was supposed to be a short-yardage weapon for the Seattle Seahawks. Instead, the former USC standout was just a short-timer. White was cut Friday, a mere month after the Seahawks traded for him. It was an indication from new Coach Pete Carroll that he doesn't plan to extend any special treatment to his former college players. Team insiders say White was not as committed to the program as he should have been and seemed to approach his job as if he were "on scholarship."

RENTON, Wash. - They are remarkable. They are unstoppable. They can't be beat. Ken Norton Jr. will gather his Seattle Seahawks linebackers before Saturday's playoff game and remind them of this, raising his voice like a corner man in boxing, and for good reason. It's a strategy he knows well, and an homage to his dad. "Boxers need to be extremely confident. If you've got any insecurities, you're going to lose," Norton said this week. "It's the same way in football. You've got to break them down, but then you've got to build them up. You've got to make them feel on game day that they prepared so well they can't possibly lose.

Sam Farmer's pick: The Cardinals are capable of surprising, but that's not likely against an opponent that crushed them, 58-0, in their last meeting. It doesn't help that defensive end Calais Campbell is iffy because of a bruised spine. Seahawks 31, Cardinals 17

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are under investigation by Miami police in connection with an alleged sexual assault. Kaepernick, along with teammate Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette, are named in a Miami police report filed by a woman. The woman, who told police she's previously had a sexual relationship with the star quarterback, said she met the players April 1 at an apartment where they were mixing drinks and watching a basketball game.

The NFL on Tuesday reinstated former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner from an indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The suspension for using marijuana ended Browner's season in December and thrust the 29-year-old's career into doubt. In a  dispatch on Twitter , however, the open-ended punishment went up in smoke. “I realize now more than ever that being part of the NFL is not a right but a privilege,” Browner wrote. “I am grateful that Commissioner [Roger]

Pete Carroll returned to USC on Wednesday night for his first public appearance at the school since he led the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl title. And the NCAA sanctions levied against the school after Carroll left the Trojans for the NFL in 2010 are still apparently on his mind. Carroll addressed a crowd of about 1,200 at Bovard Auditorium as part of an event sponsored by the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the upbeat evening taking on a lighthearted feel when actor Will Ferrell came on stage and kicked a football into the balcony.

With a 43-8 dismantling of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seattle Seahawks became the undisputed champions of the NFL on Sunday night. So that means the Broncos are the league's second-best team, right? Well, not necessarily. Outspoken Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman declared during a Super Bowl after-party that the Seahawks' bitter NFC rival, the San Francisco 49ers, were actually No. 2 in the NFL. After all, it took a big defensive play in the end zone by Sherman and teammate Malcolm Smith to preserve a 23-17 victory over the 49ers in the NFC championship -- an extremely close contest that didn't at all resemble the blowout that took place at MetLife Stadium two weeks later.
