Pete Carroll on Richard Sherman: ‘I know there have been some issues and stuff. I’m anxious to see him handle everything’

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll thinks cornerback Richard Sherman will bounce back just fine after a trying 2016 season.

“I’m anxious to see him come back,” Carroll said, via the Seattle Times.

“I know there have been some issues and stuff. I’m anxious to see him handle everything and do really well and represent himself and his teammates in great fashion. … He’s a fantastic battler. The only thing that happened is that he didn’t come back, he didn’t re-set as he has. He always found his way to reset [in the past] and he kind of stayed on the edge throughout the season, which was very challenging for him. … So I’m hoping that things balance out moreso for him so that he doesn’t have to carry an additional burden of just trying to be one of the best players in the NFL that he is. So I’m expecting him to do a really good job. He always has. Sometimes the turnaround time just takes a little bit longer than others.”
