More NFL offseason: League minicamp dates | Latest news, notes

Fights in football practices are about as common as coaches dropping F-bombs or reporters diligently trying to keep themselves awake while watching drills. But minicamp tussles don't often involve one of the best defensive players in the league.

Thus, we present to you video of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and receiver Phil Bates getting into a physical battle on Wednesday.

Apparently, the tempers began to rise when receiver Bryan Walters apparently hurt his shoulder after Earl Thomas landed on him while Walters dove to make a catch. The next play is when Sherman and Bates went at it.

A GIF (with punches thrown!) for your viewing pleasure.

Luckily for all involved, it ended in peace.
