"The state of things in the world today is very ... interesting," Sherman said. "You have players who are trying to take a stand and who try to be aware of social issues to try to make a stand and increase people's awareness and put a spotlight on it, and they're being ignored. I mean, whether they are taking a knee or they're locking arms, they're trying to bring people together and unite them for a cause. I think the last couple of days, a couple more guys have gotten shot and killed in the middle of the street. More videos have come out of guys getting killed."
