If Richard Sherman ran for president of the United States, he’d win, right? During a radio interview with ESPN’s John Clayton, Sherman laid out some of his platform, which includes no longer having taxpayer money put toward funding new stadiums.

The rest of Sherman’s plan could include prison time for owning puppies and outlawing pizza and he’d still be a worthy candidate.

“I would respectfully accept that nomination,” Sherman told Clayton. “I think I’d have a pretty ingenious plan for our economy to spark more jobs. I’d obviously lower my own tax bracket, but compared to the candidates we have, I’d do a great job. So would young Tyler Lockett. (He) would be a phenomenal candidate except, his age.”

“I’d get us out of this deficit,” he said. “I’d stop spending billions of taxpayer dollars on stadiums and probably get us out of debt and maybe make the billionaires who actually benefit from the stadiums pay for them. That kind of seems like a system that would work for me.”

Somewhere, Bernie Sanders is angry that he didn’t announce Sherman as his running mate months ago.

The only part of this campaign promises that will cause him to lose votes is saying he wants to make defensive pass interference worth the same as offensive pass interference — 10 yards. Sherman revealing he in the pocket of Big Defense will definitely be his demise.
