Warning: Story contains coarse language

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman vehemently denied the notion that he doesn’t get along with quarterback Russell Wilson during an interview Thursday.

ESPN The Magazine’s Seth Wickersham wrote a story titled “Why Richard Sherman can’t let go of Seattle’s Super Bowl loss” detailing a June 2014 incident where the cornerback allegedly yelled “you fucking suck” at Wilson after intercepting him in practice.

Wickersham also reported that Sherman took the Seahawks’ Super Bowl XLIX defeat harder than anyone.

The four-time Pro Bowler appeared to be incensed by Wickersham’s story.

“It’s just a bunch of nonsense from ‘anonymous’ sources. Can never put much gravity of things like that,” Sherman said on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was also infuriated by the story, deeming it “trash” and “gossip” in a tweet.

Sherman was reported to be on the trade block after the 2016 season ended, with the New England Patriots allegedly expressing interest in him, but no deal came to fruition.

For the time being, the Seahawks are coming together in defense of their teammates.
