Richard Sherman Goes Undercover as Lyft Driver, Surprises Unaware Passengers

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has made such a name for himself that it's probably impossible for him to go out on the streets of Seattle without being recognized.

However, with the help of a hoodie, beanie and sunglasses, he is able to disguise himself enough to fool some people.

Sherman teamed up with Lyft to provide a few lucky fans with a ride of a lifetime. While many trips are boring, the three-time first-team All-Pro corner did his best to have some fun with his passengers—and hype up the Seahawks as well.

Anyone who has followed Sherman throughout his career knows he loves to talk. So imagine what he's like in a car, especially when he's trying not to give away his true identity.

Of course, Sherman is not the first professional athlete to go undercover for Lyft. Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant (here), NASCAR driver Danica Patrick (here) and NFL legend Jerry Rice (here) have all gotten behind the wheel and surprised unsuspecting passengers.
