Sherman was arrested three years ago outside of his in-laws’ house in Redmond and faced charges of driving under the influence and two domestic-violence-related misdemeanors.

After that arrest, police said Sherman crashed his SUV in a construction zone and tried to break into his in-laws’ suburban Seattle home.

His father-in-law, Raymond Moss, told officers he armed himself with a handgun and fired pepper spray at Sherman to protect his family.

At the time, Sherman said he was “deeply remorseful for my actions” and that he “behaved in a manner that I am not proud of.” He said he had been “dealing with some personal challenges over the last several months, but that is not an excuse for how I acted.”

He eventually pleaded guilty to first-degree negligent driving, second-degree criminal trespass and speeding in a roadway construction zone as part of a plea bargain and served no jail time.

Sherman spent seven of his 11 seasons with the Seahawks, playing in two Super Bowls with them and winning one. He spent three more seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, losing the 2020 Super Bowl to the Kansas City Chiefs.

He played one final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021.
