SEATTLE -- Kaela Carpenter, the wife of Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter, suggested in a tweet Monday night that Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman should be castrated for a late hit on her husband in Monday night's game. Sherman responded to the tweet Tuesday morning:
@KaelaCarpenter 😂😂😂😂😂 Thank you! Have a great day— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) November 8, 2016
Sherman was not flagged for unnecessary roughness after hitting Carpenter below his knees during the 53-yard field goal attempt, which was blown dead because Sherman was offside. That led to a bizarre sequence of events that included Carpenter having to leave the game because trainers entered the field of play to evaluate him for a potential injury.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll commented on Kaela Carpenter's tweet Tuesday morning. “She can do what she wants," Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle. "She has a right. It’s her own opinion.”
