Richard Sherman gets leveled by teammate Bobby Wagner in Pro Bowl

One of the only good things about the new format of the Pro Bowl is that teammates can be drafted to play on opposite teams and go against each other. And while this happens all the time in practice, the cameras aren’t there to broadcast it to the world. Furthermore, in the Pro Bowl, it gets fun when offensive players line up as defenders, and vice versa.

So when Richard Sherman lined up as a receiver on Sunday, teammate linebacker Bobby Wagner was probably licking his chops before the snap at the possibility of being able to tackle him, since they were on opposing teams.

Sherman received a toss on an end-around, and the play spiraled downhill quickly from there. The result of the play was a 22-yard loss, and Sherman was hit hard and driven out of bounds on a tackle by, you guessed it, Wagner!
