Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman Changes Twitter Name To “Optimus Prime” Prior To Match-Up Against Calvin Johnson/Megatron

The Seattle Seahawks are getting prepared for their week 8 match-up against the Detroit Lions  and Richard Sherman is already going in.   Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who doesn’t shy away from controversy, changed his name on Twitter this week to “Optimus Prime.”  If you recall, in “Transformers,”  Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots who are on the good guy side of things.  Optimus Prime’s arch-nemesis is Megatron, the leader of the notoriously bad Decepticons.

It just so happens that Richard Sherman will be matched up against Detroit Lions’ wide receiver Calvin Johnson in week 8, who has held the nickname Megatron since his rookie season.  Shots fired!
