LOOK: Rams punter burns Richard Sherman on fake punt, Twitter
Johnny Hekker burnt Richard Sherman on the field and then burnt him off it.
The Pro Bowl is a time for shenanigans, tomfoolery and hijinks. Also, fake punts.
Good on Rams punter Johnny Hekker for getting to deliver in crunch time with a beauty of a fake punt. Hekker's known as somewhat of an accurate marksman in the NFL, and he didn't disappoint on Sunday night with his throwing arm.
And because you're allowed to tweet from the sidelines of the Pro Bowl, Hekker was able to fire out a little trash talk in the direction of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who was in coverage on the play.
A sick burn made even sicker by the fact that Hekker nearly got his clock cleaned by some Seahawks defenders earlier in the year after engaging in an ill-advised, near-physical battle with Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.
Also of note here? Hekker threw the fake punt to Seahawks wideout Tyler Lockett and after it, as you can see in the photo above, he stiffs Falcons wideout Julio Jones on a high five and then does the "too cool for school" swipe past his ear.
