Richard Sherman defends DeSean, shows pic from same Little League team "No one should be judged by the actions of others!" Sherman tweeted. Richard Sherman came to the defense of DeSean Jackson (above) on Twitter. Drew Hallowell Mar 29, 2014 at 5:43p ET Richard Sheman tweeting out an old picture of himself with DeSean Jackson served two purposes. First, it showed the Seattle Seahawk speaking out in defense of embattled pal Jackson, who was released from the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday amid a wave of controversy. Second, the 1999 photo showed Sherman and Jackson were cute-as-a-button kids who played on the same Little League team (go Holly Park Marlins) back in the day. Here's what the Seattle Seahawks star posted on Twitter Saturday morning: @DeseanJackson10 and me have been boys since we were kids... No one should be judged by the actions of others! #fam pic.twitter.com/Q7yuxMcz6a— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 29, 2014 H/t Twitter via Bleacher Report.
