“I think he’s that type of player. I might get some flack for that, but I’ve seen the game. I’m a student of the game. I understand players, and what they’re doing. He’s an amazing player.” — Richard Sherman, when asked about Baldwin joining Jerry Rice as the only NFL players with 10 touchdowns in a four-game span.
