Sports agent Leigh Steinberg’s insider perspective on Richard Sherman

January 21, 2014

Legendary sports agent and the inspiration for Jerry Maguire, Leigh Steinberg, tells Pete what advice he would give Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman following his controversial interview. And interestingly why he thinks the entire thing was calculated.

“Richard Sherman is a very bright guy… I think he saw Miley Cyrus twerking, which was intensely controversial to people who are older but actually jump started her career. And he made a decision that whatever happened in that game he was going to get interviewed, he was going to make such a scene that he would be branded, in his mind in a positive way,” Steinberg said.

This is just a sneak peek into the “Stand Up! With Pete Dominick” show on SiriusXM Indie, Ch. 104.
