"If the play is called for me to read it to Richard’s side, by all means I’m going to do it," Newton said, per ESPN. "And I’m going to give each and every receiver an opportunity to make plays. I’m not going to force it. I’m not going to be an idiot. I’m going to do a great job of protecting the football and be aggressively patient in taking what the defense gives me."
Sherman will likely draw rookie receiver
"You can tell he loves the game," Benjamin said. "He brings the passion to it. He has fun. He talks a lot of smack out there, but this is football. I’m just going to come out there and match his intensity; play fast and be sound in all my assignments."
Opposing teams have completed just 7 of 15 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown against Sherman in 2014.
"If you go into that game with these guys, you wouldn’t really snap the ball," Garrett said of shying away from Sherman, per ESPN. "They have good players outside, they have good linebackers, they have good rushers, the free safety is fantastic. We have to go play. We have a healthy respect for their team -- all you have to do is put in the tape -- but we have to do what we do."
"I’m still the guy scrapping for a spot," Sherman said. "You never lose that mentality. You can take a ragged dog that’s been on the streets for 10 years and put him in a new house with steak, lobster every night and he’s still the raggedy dog you got off the street.
"I’m still the raggedy dog off the street. That mentality isn’t something I could change, I don’t think, even if I wanted to. Even if wanted to be, ‘Yeah, I’m a millionaire.’ I can’t do it. It’s not a switch that I have. I’ve been in this mentality. I don’t know anything else. This is how I’m going to be until I hang the cleats up. Then, I might try to eat caviar and drink wine, or whatever they do."
Sherman made $555,000 last year and was entering the final year of his contract.
