Wallace wrote the omission of the leaking cup from the report was a “big deal,” and that, “insuring a sample is collected properly is the cornerstone of the program and when an event occurs that does not happen routinely or that the collector has never experienced while collecting the sample it is incumbent upon that collector to note what happened.”
Sherman said when he got word on Nov. 12 of the failed test he knew it had to do with the sample collected in September.
“It was a weird day, a weird testing procedure,” Sherman said. “A lot of things went wrong on that day and that’s why the result came out the way it did because he made mistakes and he did things wrong.”
Seattle has played the last three weeks without fellow starting cornerback Brandon Browner, serving a four-game suspension for a banned substance violation.
Browner’s suspension expires after Sunday’s game against the Rams, so Seattle will have both of its starting cornerbacks for the postseason.
“It definitely feels good for him to take this journey and keep being on this team with us,” Seattle safety Earl Thomas said. “We’re getting (Browner) back and the depth that we have and the young guys got a chance to prove who they are and it’s all just coming together for us.”
According to STATS, Sherman is tied with Pittsburgh’s Keenan Lewis for the NFL lead with 23 passes defensed. He is tied for second in interceptions with seven.
Sherman was a surprise omission from the Pro Bowl roster announced Wednesday. Despite his impressive numbers, Sherman was a first alternate at cornerback for the NFC, behind the Chicago duo of Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman, and Arizona’s Patrick Peterson.
“I appreciate the league for allowing justice to be served and allowing me to continue to play,” Sherman said.
