It's been a big year for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. First, he helped lead his team to its first-ever Super Bowl victory -- a crushing 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. On June 6, it was announced he would be featured on the cover of Madden NFL 15, a popular video game series. And lastly, he recently went home shopping and landed himself a nice deal.

The famously outspoken All-Pro defender has bought a $2.3 million mansion in the Seattle area from Jamal Crawford, a Seattle native and star guard for the Los Angeles Clippers. The sale was first reported in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and the sale is recorded in property records. Crawford lost $1 million on the four-bedroom, 6.25-bath home in Maple Valley, Washington. He bought it in April 2006 for $3.231 million.

Maple Valley is about 45 minutes from Seattle and convenient to the Seahawks practice field in Renton.
After an extension deal announced last month, Sherman is the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL, with a four-year, $56 million contract.

The private, gated Mediterranean mansion has a curved staircase, "Tuscan columns," and two stone fireplaces. A red game room has a pool table and wet bar, and three bedrooms have private decks. There's also an indoor swimming pool and a basketball court.

This is a really nice, cozy home! It's nothing I could ever afford, but it's not obnoxious or opulent or gaudy... just really homey and inviting.

You go, Richard! Loved watching you (and the team) last season, and am looking forward to seeing you in the next one. You're a star in my eyes!

Good for Richard. He is the kind of (black) person that drives the haters nuts. He is articulate, eduacated and loves to shove it in the face of the haters.

I would say he made a great investment but it's too big to be a bachelor's pad. He may wish to consider hiring a butler to keep him informed as to what's going on inside his mansion on any given day/night. A pre-printed map may come in handy. Power to the People. ACK ACK

Nice but the kitchen needs a lot of upgrades. If I was going to spend millions on a house, and I don't want a big house headache, but if I did I would get the good stuff for the kitchen like a chicken rotisserrie, a soft-serve ice cream and milk shake machine, a deep fryer for making French fries, egg rolls, and chimichungas.
Once you have a chicken rotisserrie you can swap-out the spires for babby back rib spires.
You aint even been alive until you've eaten rotisserrie baby back ribs.
