Sherman, Bates Part Of Scuffle During Seahawks Minicamp

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Tempers flared during the second day of the Seattle Seahawks’ minicamp, with cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Phil Bates in the middle of a heated scuffle.

Wednesday’s practice became more intense after wide receiver Bryan Walters caught a pass and appeared to injure his shoulder falling while being closely defended by safety Earl Thomas.

That started heated words between the offensive and defensive players. On the next play, Bates and Sherman locked up, both having their helmets knocked off and arms flailing before teammates separated the pair. Thomas, Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin were all jawing back and forth as well.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll called the team together. By the end of practice, all the players involved were shaking hands and laughing about what happened.

“We’re all so competitive if you press one wrong button, everybody will clear the benches,” Thomas said.
