The CB’s contract extension is well-deserved. It’s also reportedly worth $57 million over four years.
In addition to his name being in the news for a new contract, Sherman also has people talking because of his latest TV spot. Check out the LOB star has he sells you beef jerky. Kind of:

Here we are again comparing Sherman to a professional wrestler. It happened last year after his infamous post-game promo with Erin Andrews and now he’s one of the top jerky salesmen with the late great Randy Savage.
Now all Sherman needs is a catch phrase. Maybe even a couple of catch phrases. Either way, he’s rich now.
