Sherman will have his image plastered on the front of the next version of EA Sports' popular "Madden" football game. It's an honor that's allegedly been fraught with peril for some past recipients who have either had subpar seasons or suffered injuries the year they were on the cover.

Despite the notoriety that has come with winning an online vote to be on the cover, along with numerous other endorsements this offseason and a new contract extension, Sherman has remained committed to the Seahawks' offseason program. Seattle coach Pete Carroll noted Monday that Sherman has missed "maybe a day" of the voluntary offseason program.

Sherman has signed a four-year contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks.

Sherman announced the news on his website Wednesday ahead of a news conference called by the team. Sherman wrote that the extension is for $57.4 million with $40 million guaranteed. Sherman wrote there is no other team or city that he would want to play for. Sherman is a two-time All-Pro selection. He had eight interceptions each of the past two seasons.

Sherman has been taken to the locker room on a cart after appearing to hurt his right leg in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl.

Sherman was hit by teammate Earl Thomas as the pair attempted to break up a pass early in the fourth quarter. Sherman had been down earlier in the second half after appearing to get his legs tangled on a block, but he ran off the field after being looked at by trainers.
