Mandatory Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY SportsWhen asked about his suspension that was eventually overturned, Richard Sherman made the assertion that half of the NFL was on Adderall.

Later, he backpedaled on that statement, claiming that he was misquoted by the Vancouver Sun and long-time NFL writer Mike Beamish.

In an attempt to clear Beamish's good name and clarify the situation, the Vancouver Sun posted video of the interview, in which Sherman clearly says exactly what Beamish reported that he had said.

In case you missed it, the video is posted here.

Even after the video was posted online, Sherman continued to deny it and continued to tweet that he had been misquoted.

I understand that Sherman is desperate for attention, and he loves to get it by running off at the mouth.

Still, there's no excuse for questioning the integrity of a journalist who has built up a career by doing the right thing.

Play the game on the field, Mr. Sherman. But step up and stand by what you've said, instead of being a coward and calling a truthful man a liar.
