Richard Sherman was called all kinds of names after his raging rant at the end of the NFC championship game. ''I wanted to educate the uneducated,'' Sherman said in a discussion at the Harvard Business School. ''I felt the need to turn the discussion on its head.'' Sherman was mostly known only by football fans before his admittedly overexcited postgame trash-talk about Michael Crabtree after the Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers to win the NFC title. When they called me a 'thug,' I provoked a discussion.'' That discussion took him to Harvard, along with former NFL Players Association President Domonique Foxworth, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Mike McCarthy promises there won't be any bad memories plaguing his Green Bay Packers when they open the NFL season on Sept. 4 at Super Bowl champion Seattle.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are getting their first look at the latest stage of their rebuilding project, an offensive overhaul that includes the loss of several starters. Players went through the second day of offseason conditioning drills Wednesday and were still getting accustomed to not seeing Jones-Drew, Meester and others in the locker room.
