Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman won the Good Guy Award from the Professional Football Writers of America for his consistent cooperation with the media. Seattle’s All-Pro follows teammate Russell Wilson as a winner of the award. The Good Guy Award is given to a NFL player for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs. The award was first given by the PFWA in 2005. “Not only is Richard Sherman one of the top cover guys on defense, he’s one of the absolute best for media coverage,” said ESPN’s John Clayton. “He studies every aspect of the game, he’s perhaps the best resource for knowledge of the current game I’ve ever run across.”
