It’s going to happen here and there in the NFL. A guy who you battled hard against (and maybe even came to blows with) ends up as a teammate.
Richard Sherman has a way of getting under the skin of opponents, and Trent Williams can attest to that. After a playoff game between Sherman’s Seattle Seahawks and Williams’ Washington Redskins at the end of the 2012 season, the two had words at midfield. Williams gave a quick punch to Sherman’s face before they got broken up.
On Saturday the two became teammates as Williams was traded to the San Francisco 49ers.

Not that you’re going to forget a 300-pound lineman hitting you in the face, but Sherman remembered and made a joke about it.
First, 49ers owner Jed York even chimed in.
Hey, after all this time, you’d assume Williams isn’t still angry. Perhaps.
