(Bleacher Report) – Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he’s matured over the past year since his first Super Bowl appearance. Yet as he prepares to help lead his team into a clash with the New England Patriots in hope of repeating as champions, he remains outspoken.

In a column for The MMQB, Sherman talks about a wide range of topics, including the teammates who’ve helped him become a star and his first child on the way. Most interestingly, he provided his thoughts on commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL‘s current leadership structure.

The fourth-year player out of Stanford understands the league’s commissioner is acting in the interest of the owners. He’s disappointed, however, that former players like Troy Vincent haven’t been able to help the current group more despite moving into key positions:

I once believed that having more retired players in the league office could remedy this, but the former player in the highest position, executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, continues to disappoint.
